Henna art sketched freeform on a woman’s hand is a popular custom in Saudi Arabia. Henna gel was squeezed out of a tube and drawn into delicate floral designs on the backhand and the fingers as a party favor during a wedding shower. The gel takes about 20 to 30 minutes before it is completely dry when it can be peeled off leaving the inked design which lasts about 2-3 weeks. While the henna gel is drying, the hand becomes freezing cold!
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
