Mehndi, or henna, as it is commonly called, is a form of temporary tattoo that is obtained from the leaves of the henna plant with a natural dye (Lawson). Also known as hennotannic acid, Lawson sinks deep into the skin and lasts from a few days to a few weeks.
Colors that vary from light orange to black can be achieved depending on how long the medium stays in contact with the skin.
Mehndi designs are often used in Hindu culture to decorate a bride on her wedding day. Traditional mehndi tattoos usually consist of symmetrical ribbons, recurring patterns and mandala-style flowers.
