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. There are many different kinds of henna designs and the two main ones that you're likely to see are Indian and Moroccan. Moroccan henna designs are characterized by geometric forms and a lot of straight lines. The designs from the north around Fez are usually more geometric. We also see a lot of leaves and flowers and curvy lines in the designs from the south. But in general, when you see something that's very geometric, that tends to be a Moroccan design. Moroccan designs also contain a lot of very powerful symbols of protection and fertility and also to keep the evil eye away.
