'Menna' trend proves men can rock henna too

Erica Rae Chong

Henna is typically seen on the hands and feet of women — but these dudes are proving that the intricate designs can look just as good on men.

From traditional art to modern geometric designs, this good-looking (and we're not just talking about the tattoos here) trend has been coined "menna" on social media sites.

The best part? Henna isn't permanent like a tattoo is, so the design can be switched up every few weeks. Click the gallery above to check out some stunning designs and let us know if you’d try “menna” by tweeting us @YahooStyleCA.
