People around the world have practiced the art of mehndi — or henna tattoos — for centuries. The intricate designs are often worn in conjunction with religious rituals to cultivate good luck and blessings. They're also a popular form of self-expression, offering a beautiful and temporary form of body art.
These illustrated step-by-step instructions feature easy-to-follow exercises showing how to combine dots, swirls, ripples, and other patterns into original versions of the traditional patterns. Guidelines include suggestions for combining the simple shapes that form the basic elements of mehndi, a selection of motifs, practice pages with unfinished patterns, many helpful tips, and plenty of samples for coloring.

5 Questions with Jessica Mazurkiewicz: An Exclusive Dover Interview

Jessica Mazurkiewicz's graphic designs appear in books and magazines as well as on clothing and dinnerware — and, of course, many of Dover's bestselling coloring books. With the help of our Facebook friends, we put together a few questions for this talented artist.

1.) Your coloring and activity books are directed at a younger audience. Have you been drawing since you were little, and do you call upon your "inner child" for inspiration?

I have always loved to draw and make things with my hands. I'm the oldest of several sisters and when we were young I used to make little activity books and pages for them to color. I remember how I would wrack my brain to create something fun and interesting for them to enjoy — a very similar process takes place in my mind now, just for a much larger group of color artists.
