A big lotus on your feet would look not just beautiful but also rhetorical because “lotus feet” is a terminology in the true sense. It would go with the bride’s Goddess posture and it will definitely stand out amongst the rest.
Lotus at the back of the hand
We have told you about the lotus designs with jewelry style. This is exactly where this deign comes of use. First let us tell you that lotus at the back of the hand is highly symbolic. It symbolizes purity, freshness, auspiciousness. It is the single most beneficial symbol that has special meaning in Hinduism. Some would also say that it wards off evil eye.
So the method of drawing this can change from person to person. But right now it is being used with jewelry designs. You just leave some space in between your dotted chains and in between draw the lotus flower. Later on, you can connect the design with the lotus with just some additions of dotted chain links.
Simple lotus design on palm
Nothing looks purer and calmer than this. Just make a big round at the middle of the hand and inside, draw a neat lotus. Cover the outer part with intense fill outs. Only the lotus should be the one part of the hand that has remained uncovered with mehndi. This will make it stand out. You can go on to make the fingers look shade. But since you have drawn a central lotus it would be ideal if the fingers have little floral shades or better yet, a little lotus hanging down from each finger. This is what we call beauty along with tradition. It is also a very trending design right now.
Lotus Mehndi on Spine
Since a lot of women will wear lehenga on their D-day, it makes sense as to why they would want to have mehndi at the back. If you want to show off that back at your wedding, you can do so traditionally by outing up some mehndi design. The best way to decorate your back is to have a central floral piece.
The lotus design may not be the one which you have seen so far. Nowadays many elongated, unique lotus designs are coming in the market which makes it easier to draw this at the back. It will look like a classic wellspring of life – a thing that every bride wants to epitomize. Attaching this with henna makes it even more traditional.
The colored lotus should be drawn at a very specific part of the body because it is really very eye-catching. If you draw it at the back of your hand, it might simply get snubbed under your jewelry. Doing them on the palm is a good idea, but then since hands are used for everything, the color can get removed easily. Instead, do it in a much less used area of your body. You can do them on the feet or at the back or better still – try doing it on your thighs. It will be a pleasant surprise.
