The most important thing of an Indian wedding and festival is mehndi. The fragrant henna designs on a bride’s hand and feet not only enhance the look of the bride, but will also bring intrigue to the bride and the wedding guests.

Tribal mehndi designs

Tribal mehndi designs are slowly gaining popularity. If you look for similarities you will find that African Mehndi designs are pretty close to Indian Mehndi designs in terms of designs and patterns. Tribal mehndi designs consist designs of simple geometric shapes, lines, dots or square. Tribal mehndi designs typically cover arms, hands, or foot like a mesh.

Mehendi with Squares and straight lines only

Squares and straight lines are a feature of this style, as well as simplicity and interlocking patterns. The spacing which comes with a tribal mehndi design offers an enhanced look, which is great for brides who are looking to have a unique pattern on their hands.
