9 Awesome Arabic Mehndi Designs

By  | 

India is home to different traditional and contemporary henna design artwork and Arabic mehndi designs have also been trending for a few years now. With regard to the most popular type of mehndi design, the Rajasthani style would undoubtedly win hands down. In direct contrast however, the Arabic mehndi designs depict a lot of floral art which flows continuously and other nature related motifs such as buds, flowers in full bloom and even branches are often drawn. These designs are so eye catching because of the geometrical symmetry that often accompanies the motifs and the artwork can be further enhanced by using other embellishments such as sequins, stones and glitter.

Here are our top 9 Arabic mehndi design picks:
