Henna Painting in Abu Dhabi – Temporary Traditional Tattoos

Henna is derived from a flower plant called Lawsonia inermis; that is made to form a dye that is used as temporary body art. The leaves of the henna plant are first dried and ground, and later mixed with essential oils to create a paste which is then used to draw this traditional body art. Popular in the Middle East, the art of decorating the hands, feet and even hair are common amongst the locals and tourists alike. Henna Painting in Abu Dhabi is easy to find as the streets are cluttered with salons offering henna painting. For tourists searching for 5 star hotels in Abu Dhabi, during the vacation, Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara can be an option worth considering as it allows easy access to some of the more popular Henna parlours located in the city.

Henna is often designed in intricate floral designs that require the steady hand of an experienced professional, however, many designers are incorporating Indian styles to these designs by creating animals or other figures which are becoming rather popular with the younger generations. Unlike tattoos, which are more permanent on the body, a henna tattoo would last for no more than two – three weeks and is not harmful to the skin in any way.

Being the capital of United Arab Emirates, henna parlours are abundant in spas and salons. For those who wish to enjoy being in the comforts of home while the henna is being designed, can opt for a home arrangement. Do keep in mind that once the henna has been applied, one must wait at least one hour for the henna to completely dries off, as no one wants a smudged henna pattern! Henna was originally drawn mostly on brides or during other special ceremonies, however, now almost anyone can get a henna tattoo.
