The exact place of its origin is difficult to track because of centuries of people in different cultures moving through the continents and taking their art forms with them and therefore sharing their art with everyone along the way.
Some historical evidence suggests that Mendhi started in India while others believe it was introduced to India during the twelfth century A.D. I personally feel that it would be hard to argue the fact that it appeared as an art form in Egypt first.
Proof has been found that henna  was used to stain the fingers and toes of Pharoahs prior to mummification over 5000 years ago when it was also used as a cosmetic and for it’s healing power. The mummification process took 70 days and as the Egyptians were diligent in planning for their deaths and their rebirth in the afterlife, they became quite obsessed with the preservation process. The Egyptians believed that body art ensured their acceptance into the afterlife and therefore used tattooing and mendhi to please the gods and guarantee a pleasant trip.
The henna used for Mehndi comes from a bush called Lawsonia Inermis which is part of the loose strife family and is grown in the Sudan, Egypt, India, most of the North African counties, The Middle East and other hot and dry places. The bush is also grown in Florida and California for his ornamental appearance and often grows to be quite large, ranging from six to twenty feet in some cases. The lance- shaped leaves from the bush are harvested, dried and then crushed to make the henna powder. Henna is used for hair dye, as a skin conditioner and as a reliever for rashes. The art of mehendi is referred to as henna or mehendi depending on where you are and which name you feel came first. No matter what you call it though :- the art form remains essentially the same as it was centuries ago. It is beautiful the way it stains the skin!

In Asian marriages a lot of emphasis is put on the many ceremonies that are held to mark the occasion. These rituals not only have a religious significance but are also a great way for the families to come together and celebrate. The love of the Indians for all things beautiful and colorful is amply reflected in the many traditions that are observed at the time of the wedding.
The art of Mehndi has existed for centuries. Mehndi Art is very oldest in Asian country, We have tried to put some latest and popular Mehndi designs pictures of 2010. There are many Mehndi designs like Arabic Mehndi designs,bridal Mehndi designs, Rajasthani Mehndi designs and many more which, Asian women love to put on there hands for decorating purpose, It has many traditional value in India also, brides in India don’t called as bride if she don’t have any Mehndi Designs on her hands, and the color of the Mehndi on brides hands describe the love of her mother in law.
