Mehandi is a type of paste made out of a special kind of leaves and applied to hands of girls on special occasions. It is a tradition in Arabic countries and in India.
Mehandi imparts a deep red color to the hands and that color has a symbolic meaning. It means purity and deep love.

Yes, I did it many times before. It is not that difficult and gets better with practice. Well, the time depends on which kind of design you choose to apply and how good you are at it.

I mean, the design above is so detailed and intricate. It would require more effort and practice. Only experts can pull it off. So, I got a mehandi artist to put it on my hands (those hands are mine).

I can surely do much simpler designs.
