Favorite Henna Designs for Summer

Any time is a good time for a henna tattoo, but summer tends to be the most popular time to have one done. After all, it's the time of year when more skin is exposed, so it's easier to go all out with a really elaborate henna tattoo. Before going out and having a henna tattoo drawn on your arm, hand, ankle, foot or elsewhere on your body, give some thought about how you'd like it to look. The sky's the limit when it comes to henna designs, but certain motifs make more sense during the summer than others. A great way to brainstorm ideas is by checking out henna design books. Start getting the inspiration you need by considering these popular summer henna designs right now:
Floral Henna Design Patterns Ebook
  • Ladybugs - Most henna designs include intricate abstract patterns, but it's nice to have some sort of focal point too. Why not try a cute ladybug design? The ladybug could form the center of the henna design, and abstract shapes and patterns can radiate out from it. You're sure to get lots of compliments for your henna tattoo, which will work perfectly during the warmest, sunniest time of year.
  • Floral and Botanical Designs - After browsing through various henna design books and websites, you'll quickly see that floral patterns and botanical designs are very popular. You can take these ideas in many exciting directions. From simple patterns of daisies to elaborate networks of vines that wind their way down your hand, along your wrist and up your arm, you'll love the pretty, cheery style of botanical and floral henna tattoos.
  • Sunshine - Pay homage to the sun this summer with a lovely sun-themed henna tattoo. The sun can serve as the centerpiece of your henna design, or you can include a series of suns for a particularly bright, sunny, happy look. Throw in a few abstract shapes and patterns to achieve a summer friendly style that you're sure to love. Suns radiating out from the bellybutton as the focal point are especially popular and a great look for a night of dancing or a day at the beach.
  • Butterflies - Henna tattoos are usually richly detailed, and what better way to play up that characteristic than with a butterfly motif? Butterfly wings tend to have very elaborate patterns that work perfectly with this type of art. You can then use coordinating patterns to create a one-of-a-kind design.
  • Beach and Ocean - Summertime conjures images of wide, sandy beaches with crashing waves, so it makes sense to incorporate those images into your summer henna tattoos. Waves offer many opportunities for gorgeous henna patterns, and seashells are also very popular. From starfish to octopuses, the sea is filled with unique plants and creatures that translate well into henna tattoos. Mix and match a few different designs to achieve a truly unique and unforgettable henna tattoo.
Whether you opt for a floral pattern for your summer henna tattoo or if you're interested in something a little different, there's no end to the possibilities. Summer will be here before you know it, so brainstorm some great summer henna designs now!
