I think it's pretty. I had my belly hennaed when I was pregnant, which was a lovely experience. I wouldn't get my hands done like that because I don't have the time (you need to keep it on for quite a while for the colour to set properly). I gather it's traditionally done for weddings, when the bride not doing any work with her hands prior to the ceremony is part of the point.
I think it is fabulous -so well done however would not at my age, have anything like this done!
If it were smaller, I would consider it, but then again, why.

It is possibly a work of art and it sure would save you wearing gloves!

It is very well done and a work of art. However, like tattoos, it is not my cup of tea. I am not someone who would ' wear ' art.
I think it is simply gorgeous but I would never have it done. Too ostentatious for me and also I have seen very bad skin reactions . . and it would be just my luck!

It looks rather interesting but its not something that I would do.
If I was 30 years younger, yes maybe I would have it done...a tad tribal for my taste, but it is lovely to look at.
Lot of work gone into it.
Oh, no! She smudged her pinkie! I think it's beautiful, otherwise. I would definitely have something like this done. I did actually, a few years ago. My husband's grandfather thought it was permanent and told me not to sit next to him at church. It was hilarious!

I don't mind henna art, I would have it done for an occassion.
I think that this is an utterly and absolutely GORGEOUS artform,though for my gardening lifestyle,rather impractical!! I appreciate all manner of different art styles and this one is truly stunning! I also believe that the process of having such intricate work applied would be a very relaxing experience.
I had this done in January for a wedding in India. It can be beautiful. When it was done we had to leave it to set for about an hour, in which time our husbands are supposed to feed us and give us drinks. The colour continues to darken over the next week. The indian family I was with told me that the darker the henna the more your partner loves you. The men got their wives initials on their hands so they could also see the prediction. I think it looks best on young hands but even very elderly ladies or female children had it done.
I wouldn't be likely to do it again unless I was at another Indian wedding.
Not much. Definitely not, wt hell for?
Not my scene in any way, shape, or form!
IMO, it's not pretty, quite the opposite...........

I agree, in fact I find it looks dirty. I can't see anything in this art form that I like. The colour for one, looks like the person adorned with this art looks like they need a bath.

Oh! fran, I concur!
To me, it actually looks like a 'drunken spider's' foot prints', after a wild dance!
by donjo
Fran, the colour in that picture is while the henna is still on the skin. It is then washed off, leaving the pattern. Fair enough if you don't like it, though. Different strokes for different folks.
I had my hands hennaed at a nephew's wedding in India, 2 or 3 years ago, when he married a lovely Indian girl. It was on the 1st night of the 3 night wedding. I think it looks beautiful. It only lasts 6 or 7 days. My eldest granddaughter, who was 4 at the time, had it done at her pre-school, & cried, when it smudged a bit, because she hadn't waited for it to dry properly!

I love henna art and that one on the picture is absolutely something I would get done!
Wow!What a wonderful Henna Art.I would also like it on my hands.
STUNNING! And yes! I love henna and used to have it done all the time when I was younger. I might go and get it done...
yes,it's beautiful
Definitely! i love henna
I love it although it looks pretty ratty the last few days.
I think it is fantastic, yes but not sure if it is for men?
