Comments:
The red plant-based dye henna is widely used in Asia and the Middle East to paint elaborate designs onto the skin. The custom is especially popular for weddings. The name of the bride's husband-to-be may be hidden somewhere in the intricate patterns on her hands.

In this case, texts from the biblical Song of Songs are written inside the heart shapes:

I am my Beloved's and He is Mine.

Set Me as a Seal

upon Thine Heart,

for Love is strong as Death.
