Top 50 Foot Henna Designs
Henna (or mehndi) is a temporary tattoo that’s exotic and beautiful adornment to the female body. This type of a tattoo enables women to play around with different designs and shapes on different places on their body, without any pain.
Different countries and regions have different henna designs. Arabic henna designs have bold, abstract lines. Their henna tends to feature larger floral designs.
