Is it an insult for a westerner to wear henna?

I really love the look of henna and the art form. From what I read it is strictly for the beautification of the female body (although it is used for religious and cultural ceremonies also). Even though I want to adorn my body this way I would never wear it in the traditional mehndi style or any patterns that are associated with a specific ceremony. Would my use of it be acceptable if I use it in the way I have described, purely for beautification?

  • Not at all. Yes, your use would be acceptable.
    P. S- If you want a darker mehndi colour, dab coconut oil on the dried henna. :)
