I feel like there's starting a trend where girls are drawing henna on their hands for fun or whatever. I feel like it isn't bad, because it's just a diversity of cultures, even religious people don't tend to wear them just for the actual religious reason. What are your thoughts?
i've had henna tattoos a couple times. i think they're really pretty. i had one of them done for a dance show i was in and the other done during a cultural celebration week at my college. i would get them done again too, i love the designs. and they're so intricate, i could never make them.
I've had one and I'm not religious. I didn't even think they were religious. Many people do them for unique beauty purposes. It's just a substance that stains your skin. Just because it derived from a certain country and is commonly used in their culture, it doesn't mean you can't take it up. Plus, they know henna is being shared around the world and is used by people who aren't religious or believe in their culture and they don't seem to have an issue with it. Don't worry about it. :)
I've had mehndi (henna tattoos) many times on my hands arms etc for weddings eid anyone can have it done really regardless of religion or culture it looks pretty regardless but try to use natural henna and try to avoid black henna as it contains unnatural chemicals like those found in hair dyes and can spark an allergic reaction :)
