I'm Lisa Butterworth sometimes known as Kenzi and I'm a henna artist and the owner of a henna supply business, kenzi.com. Today I'll unleash your inner henna artist and have you drawing henna designs all over your friends and anyone else who will sit still. The two most common designs for henna body art are Indian and Moroccan. Indian designs tend to be more organic and flowy, curvy. There are a lot of paisleys and flowers and peacocks. There's a subset of Indian henna designs called the Arabic and these usually tend to be asymmetrical with a lot of open space and a mixture of thick and thin lines.
