Henna tattoo

This young woman is having a 'mehendi,' which is a temporary design painted on one's hands, arms, or feet either for a special ceremony or wedding. It's done with henna, so of course it's only temporary beauty, but beauty it is.

These are so beautiful. A co-worker's daughter had her's done for her wedding 2 summers ago. Such intricate work.
When my son was younger, he'd get them whenever he visited Knott's.

When my daughter was in Morocco a few years ago, she had her hand painted. It was so graceful and beautiful.
