8 Amazing Henna Designs by Dr. Azra
For over 5,000 years, henna has been applied during special occasions and weddings. Essentially a more natural form of tattooing or seen by many as essentially makeup, henna is a natural dye that is applied to the skin, mainly the hands and feet. Common in the Middle East, North Africa, and parts of Asia where it's part of local culture, traditional henna usually depicts shapes, patterns, and sometimes flowers. One woman, however, wants to make henna more mainstream, and her name is Azra Khamissa. She has been promoting modern style henna for everyday use, creating stunning, contemporary designs that appeal to a wider audience than traditional patterns. As a result, she has been receiving clients from every corner of the globe, alongside with running workshops across the UAE.
