About Henna Art (Laali): The Temporary Tattoo
Just in case you’re a history freak, I’m going to tell you a bit about the origin and history or laali (henna). Henna (known as ‘laali’ or ‘layla’ in Nigeria; mehndi in India) is a temporary, non-painful body tattoo that is made from a natural dye. The henna dye is made from the leaves and stem of the Henna (laali) tree.
The art and practice of body decoration with henna is one that is over 5,000 years. History has it that ancient Egyptian mummies had their bodies designed with henna tattoos; other history geeks say that henna tattooing originated from Pakistan, India, Africa and the Middle East but has now become popular all over the world, even among American celebrities and musicians. What do you expect – it’s a cheap and painless way to get inked and join the bandwagon of people getting tattooed. The only downside is that it fades after a few weeks. But since the process of getting henna body art is painless, you’ll be motivated to try on each of the above 100 designs from time to time.
