From the tradition of threading to henna tattoos, East Indian culture is deeply rooted in beautifying women.
For thousands of years, people have had the desire to paint beautiful designs on their body. Even today, it has become a social norm to see men and women walk around with a handful of beautifully inked tattoos. And even though the work may be striking and beautiful, many find the thought of permanently inking your body a frightening one.
Henna is another way to display a creative design on your body without the scary feeling of eternal permanency. Henna has its roots in Ancient Egypt almost 5,000 years ago and the tradition still lives on today.
And with summer staring us straight in the face, what better time than now to get a henna tattoo. If you are expecting to spend most of the 100-degree temperature days in as little clothes as possible, a henna tattoo will have heads turning. Every shape and symbol is a reflection of your own inner beauty. The best part is that it fades naturally so you have the freedom to add a new beautiful image.
If you find yourself interested in getting a delicate henna design on your hands or feet, visit Elegant Shapes. Besides being the perfect place to get your eyebrows threaded or your makeup done, they can give you a henna tattoo too.
Henna services begin at $5.
