Top 5 Most Popular Henna Tattoo Designs

As a henna artist, my clients will sometimes bring up photos of henna tattoo designs they want done that are by other henna artists or henna designs I have done in the past and most of the time the work they show me I have seen before. They will usually pull up images via Pinterest or Google Images . So I thought it would be fun to compile a list of the 5 most popular henna tattoo designs. I am also somewhat of a social science enthusiast so I know that a big factor that goes into what people like and what catches their eye is not only the henna design, but also the photo styling i.e. colors, placement, surroundings. It’s fascinating to me when I see the same images time and time again as I think to myself “what is it about this photo in particular that people love?” I have a drawing that I did a few years back that has really been very popular and about 10 ladies have had it tattooed on them (that I know of) – you can read more about that very popular tattoo design here as well as other tattoos I have designed . *Note – I will be giving proper credit to these lovely henna artists when I know whom to give credit to. If there is no credit given, it’s just because I’m unaware of who did it so PLEASE let me know if you know who created it!  I will be sure to make the proper corrections.

Most Popular Henna Tattoo Designs

The Henna Sleeve


I would say about 25% of client coming into the studio request a full henna tattoo sleeve design. These are lovely and end up coming out quite nice. And most of the time clients are using this to test out a tattoo they would like to have and using henna to envision having that much tattoo coverage on their skin. Henna is a great way to test out tattoo designs.

Henna Floral Design


This is a design I did several years ago. The beauty of this henna design is that it is universal –  it can be applied almost anywhere on the body. I have done this same floral henna tattoo on the arm, hand, chest, and back. Originally this design was created as a lower back henna tattoo. I am glad it has stood the test of time as has been repinned on Pinterest over 6,000 times!

The Shoulder Cap Tattoo


This design is by the incomparable Darcy Vasudev of Henna Lounge and I see it many times from clients as a henna tattoo inspiration. (Side note – I’ve been getting my organic henna supplies from Darcy’s shop Henna Guru for over 6 years and I can’t say enough positive things about the customer service and quality of product!) A shoulder henna design is very popular because it can be a hidden place to get henna if you have a job that doesn’t allow for visible tattoos but it is also the perfect place to highlight your henna design with a sleeveless dress, swimsuit, or tank top.

Number 2

Most Popular Henna Tattoo Designs

The Glove Style Henna Design


Many of my clients request this style – the henna glove hand tattoo. What is important to do with this type of design is the symmetrical point that ends midway down the hand and the henna finger details where it looks like rings. To make this design really POP – get a lovely manicure with a pink or red polish color. oh yes!

The Asymmetrical Henna Hand Design


And of course, if you’ve been a henna artist for more than a day, you have come across this design by Henna By Divya. It seems to have everything a client is looking for – intricacy, movement, finger details, and floral elements so can you blame people for choosing this design time and time again? I certainly can’t! Great capture with the proper manicure, delicate pinky ring, and flawless application of henna. Well done Divya!

A Wonderful Summer for Henna

Farewell Summer! Hello Fall!

As fall is arriving, everyone is getting into Pumpkin Spice mode, raking leaves and going to apple orchards, our public henna festival season is drawing to a close. But what a wonderful summer for henna it was! We got to be in three amazing summer events this year with our henna booth. We got to meet so many of you and share in your great stories while you spent time in our booth. The three top public events we did this year were Electric Forest , DIYpsi , and The Vintage Market in Monroe.

Here are some highlight photos of each event this summer:

Oh boy have I had such a fun summer! So many of you have had excellent henna parties all across the state of Michigan and I and Lisse have been able to attend as your henna artists. Lisse and I have both travelled to Traverse City and Cadillac Michigan for different events : a henna workshop at the Traverse City Library  , two graduation parties and a few corporate events. I have been to Canton, Royal Oak, Troy and Rochester Hills for many Michigan high school grads this summer and Lisse has been to Saline, Ann Arbor, and Dexter for birthday parties and girls nights. My henna studio in Ypsilanti has been buzzing with private appointments all season. We thank you for such an amazing Summer and are looking forward to a great Autumn.

This past week I did two henna parties for the same family, who previously had me as their henna artist for their son’s wedding two years ago in Cincinnati. Now it was the daughter’s turn to be married, and I have to say how thrilled I was to be working for this great, warm, friendly and super fun family again. On Wednesday was the bride’s mehndi party for her closest friends, aunties and family members. I was overwhelmed at how much love and joy was in the room! I also got to meet a few new ladies, including Monika who’s musing blog is over at Quibbling : Observations of the World Around Me – if you like to take a deep observational look at the ordinary, check her work out.

On Friday was the Sangeet at the Eagle Crest Marriott in Ypsilanti. A Sangeet is a party the day before an Indian wedding, filled with fun presentations, dances, speeches, and games put on by the bride and groom’s family and friends. I always have a great time attending a Sangeet as a henna artist because you get to see the fun and silly side of the families. Not to mention the amazing color and decorations! The decorations were done by the ladies at JDV Events . Go look at their AMAZING gallery of weddings including their traditional weddings as well as their fusion weddings – so lovely. I snagged some pictures at the Sangeet this weekend. I was set up in this colorful jewel-toned lounge for henna.

I also got a few photos of the henna tattoos from two days before that were done at the Mehndi party. It’s rare when I see designs after they have walked away! Such is the life for henna artist Michigan .

And of course, no Indian wedding post would be complete without seeing the bride’s mehndi ! I was so lucky I got to spend so much time doing this lovely bride’s henna because she is such a loved person by her friends and family, and I can see why!

She wanted traditional henna, fitting for a bride.
