If you are looking for bridal henna design ideas for your Nikkai ceremony or Hausa traditional wedding, you’re definitely at the right place.

Henna (Laali) is traditionally used for the special occasion. It is commonly used to beautify the Hausa or Fulani bride on her wedding day. It takes patience and very steady hands to apply the henna tattoos correctly.

Hands and feet henna tattoo is one thing that many Muslim women, especially those from Northern Nigeria (Hausa, Fulani, Kanuri etc) adore not just because it has become part of the Hausa culture but because of how beautiful the henna body art design and patterns look.

In previous years, the henna paste was applied to the skin with a matchstick for precision. These days, henna can be purchased in the form of a cone and a small opening can be made at the point of the cone so that intricate designs can be created on the skin.

Below are the latest bridal henna designs.
