If you thought the Arabic henna pattern could not be intricate, think again. The choice is yours, to go with a 'bel' or an entire hand artwork.

How can we miss the 'bel'

This pattern is an integral part of the front Arabic mehandi design. If you think it is too simple for a wedding, we're totally cheering for this one on a Roka!
