henna tattoo on hands with nail varnish

Introducing the beautiful art of Henna! 

Mainly used for body art and hair dye-ing, Henna is the product of a plant, whose origins are still a bit mysterious. Its flowers, and the pigments contained in them, have been used over the centuries by many cultures all over the world, in countries such as India, Middle East and Africa.

According to the historical reports, the beautiful Cleopatra used to used it to adorn her body, a practice she probably embraced when she was in Egypt – in fact the Henna paste was already applied to mummies as a decorative design before the burial.

Today Henna is popularly used in temporary tattoos and body art in particular. You’ve probably seen them often on beautiful Indian Brides in Bollywood movies – or at an Indian wedding, if you have had the pleasure to participate to such a colorful and happy event before in your life!

It is also used in other cultures with different patterns compared to the Indian ones, but all in all the general symbol of the lines and design is to symbolise joy, beauty, to chase away the evil and attract positivity.

    I noticed a lump under my armpit. Initially it was miniature. The pain was not felt. Now rubbing and increasing. My friends like do not. The other day found out that it can be serious disease. But most likely, obviously fatty lump. Found understandable information about this lump. Now I’m not afraid of bad diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail.
    Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of bacteria. Then formed balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. In this case there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this.
