Henna

Some beautiful pictures from my friend’s traditional Moroccan Henna ceremony before  her wedding. The henna, a type of plant,  is put on the hands, which stains it a dark orange for about 10 days. It is thought to bring luck and mark that there has been a celebration. Rather than making designs like gimmick henna tattoos, the tradition is to just smear it on and let it seep into the skin.

Beautiful.
