Experiment with a leg Mehendi design; this one’s influenced by the beauty of Payal or anklets worn for special occasions. Start out with a central floral motif made up of concentric circles. Add some decoration in every circle – curves, dots, and lines. Make another small version of this design on the ankles, then add connecting lines to represent the Anklet chains. What about those toes? You can’t forget those! Use just the tip of the henna cone to draw these tiny leaves (they look really good).
- Suitable Occasion: This dress is perfect for bridal events and weddings. You can also wear it on other occasions such as karwa chauth to impress your man!
- Body Placement: Place the tattoo on the inside of the ankle or feet.
- Best Skin Tones: Those with fair, wheat-toned skin will show off the ink well. Matching Accessories: Payal, statement toe rings, simple anklet chains.

Ring Style Designs
In ring style mehndi design, the main center piece is usually a large circle that is either placed behind or in front of the hands. This design also features beautiful string patterns all around it.
Cornered Heavy Motif Mehndi Design
In this type of mehendi, the design is usually heavy and well detailed so that only one side of the hand needs to be decorated. This particular style follows an Arabic tradition where mehndi is used as decoration for Muslim women.
Symmetrical Easy Arabic Mehendi Design
With Arab-influenced Mehndi designs, it is possible to get more intricate with symmetry. It is possible to draw a pattern that goes from one hand to the other on both hands. All different styles are acceptable too; including floral, peacock, and Arabian-inspired patterns. Bells or chains can also be added for an even fancier final product.
