Stand Out From The Crowd: Henna Designs For Eid-Ul-Fitr 2022

Henna is an ancient tradition of body painting, done with a powder, which is made from dried leaves and mixed water, to create a paste. Typically, henna is used as an adornment in South Asian cultures, to mark a special occasion such as eid celebrations or weddings for instance, which are often incomplete without Henna application on the hands and or feet.  Today, henna has crossed cultural borders and become a universal form of body art and stylistic expression.

With Eid around the corner, we’ve decided to select some stylish henna designs for all the varied body art lovers out there.  You can use these designs as a reference or create your own! But remember to share a pic with us.

This design encompasses beautiful artistry combined with a keen use of negative space.  By connecting the dots and lines, geometric shapes are achieved that keeps the eyes moving across the intricate design. The balanced open space only enhances the visual effect of this design.  ‘The delicate’ has its own irresistible charm and beauty. A perfect choice if you want to flaunt a strong yet sophisticated Eid look.

A little detailing goes a long way with ‘the contemporary.  The beauty of this design lies in the precision of the art and an overall choice to go with the less is more effect. Copycat hands are a big no no for the contemporary soul.

The Lace Glove

The lace glove is another motif of henna. This lush lace glove pattern, imitates lace on your hands.
