Mehendi

A heena/mehendi artist -Suman, applying heena/mehendi on the hands of a client. Mehendi is a form of artificial tatooing that many women in Delhi patronage. When in Delhi, you must go to Hanuman Mandir, where hundreds like Suman have their stalls for applying Mehendi/Heena in beautiful Indian patterns. 

P.S. : Was not in Delhi the past few days. Was visiting Mumbai. Hope you missed me some. :-)

It takes such skill and patience to do this! I don't have a steady enough hand to thread a needle, much less make such beautiful works of art -- great photo!
