-Do I need to be a trained mehndiwali artist to make henna designs?
Absolutely not! Of course you will not make the most intricate designs at first, but you can work your way up by practicing simple motifs on yourself or on a piece of paper. Many people find that it is a talent they didn't know they had.
At least you will be able to make simple flower or geometric designs. You can make words or cartoon characters as well. All designs need not be traditional!
