How To Apply
Test in an inconspicuous area for allergic reaction to bindi
- Clean skin first to remove oil, dirt, and makeup for better
Be sure the skin is completely dry before applying bindi.
- Carefully remove bindi from film. Bindi is very
delicate, and you can pop off crystals and decorations easily,
so be very careful. Some people use tweezers,
but I prefer using my fingers to remove bindi from the card.
- Apply bindi to clean dry skin. Start by touching it
gently to the skin so that you can still move it easily to
adjust position. Once the bindi is where you like it,
press it down gently but firmly for a few seconds.
& Reusing Bindi
Carefully remove your bindi and apply it back on the
- If it's not sticking to the film or to your skin, clean the
back of the bindi with rubbing alcohol (a cotton swab works well
for this) and apply a non-toxic adhesive before wearing again.
Great Bindi Adhesives: Spirit glue or spirit gum (found in shops that sell
costume/theater makeup), eyelash glue, clear nail polish, or a glue
stick all work well as bindi adhesives.
Bindi...not just for foreheads
anymore! Bindi has many different meanings and
Traditionally bindi is worn on the forehead, but that doesn't mean
it has to stay there! Try wearing bindi any where you'd like.
Keep in mind that bindi is unlikely to stay on an area of the body
that bends or is in direct contact with furniture or clothing.
Bindi As Tilak
Tilak is a mark on the body with religious
significance. Many Hindu women wear the
traditional red dot (normally sindoor powder rather
than a sticker style bindi) and single Hindu women
often wear the traditional black dot as a form of
tilak. Bindi is just one form of tilak, as are
marks on the feet, horizontal or vertical lines on
the face, and such.
Bindi As a Chakra Focus
Forehead bindi is often used as a way to focus the
6th chakra (Ajna) of the body, concealed wisdom or
the inner eye. Wearing bindi on the forehead
helps harness energy and increase concentration.
Wearing a black bindi on the forehead is thought to
ward off negativity.
Bindi As Fashion
Not many fashions make as big a statement as wearing
bindi! Bindi is heavily worn as a fashion
accessory, just for fun, and not just on the
forehead. Bindi can be worn anywhere.
You can find bindi worn at the corner of the eyes,
on the chin, or even as a "nose ring" on the face.
Bindi look great on the chest in between the collar
bone or even just above cleavage. The arm,
wrist, lower back, belly, or ankle...the
possibilities are endless! You are only bound
by your imagination, so let loose!
Bindi and Henna
Bindi can often be found decoration henna tattoos.
Sometimes while the henna is still drying and
sometimes after the henna has been removed and the
stain is left on the skin. No matter when you
pair bindi with henna, it always adds pizzazz and
Bindi and Crafts
Bindi can be used to decorate scrapbook pages,
picture frames, dollhouse furniture, or any craft
you like. I've even seen women apply bindi to
their purse, shoes, and cell phones!
As with all our products, the point is, make it your
own! Have fun with it!
- Forehead - Try different positions. Directly between
the eyes or eyebrows, a little higher, centered on the forehead,
off center, whatever works for your mood that day!
TIP: If you are wearing bindi on stage, for a
performance, or for photos, consider wearing the bind a little
higher than normal. If it's directly between the eyebrows,
it can look like a uni-brow from far away or in pictures.
- Eyes - Just above or below the corner of the eye is a
popular way to wear bindi. Apply bindi to both eyes or
just one. Try applying multiple bindi in a starburst
inspired pattern, or create an extended "cat's eye" look
- Chin - Longer slim bindi work well in the center of
the chin. This is a popular look for Tribal Dancers,
especially American Tribal Style dance (ATS).
- Collar Bone & Chest - You know that sexy little
indentation below your neck between your collar bones?
Bindi look great there! Apply bindi a little further down
and it looks like an illusion necklace. Try bindi right at
your cleavage for a sexy look or try using multiple bindi to
accent the upper curve of your breasts.
- Anklet or Arm Bindi - Of course you can wear bindi arm
band tattoos on your arm, but you can also wear regular bindi on
your arm. Be careful. The arm takes plenty of abuse
throughout the day, that can easily pull a small bindi off.
- Back Bindi - Get creative! Lower back,
upper shoulder, one bindi, or a row of bindi!
Other Bindi Uses
- Bindi and Henna - Bindi is great for accenting henna
designs! Apply either the bindi first or the henna first,
or wait for the henna paste to be removed and apply bindi over
the henna tattoo. I like to use multiple small bindi with
henna tattoos. A small round bindi applied in the center of
a henna flower looks beautiful.
- Scrap Booking with Bindi - You can imagine the
possibilities here! Your bindi filled scrap book with be
the envy of other scrap bookers.
- Accessories - Bindi are fantastic on shoes, cell
phones, iPods, or purses!
- Bindi for Crafts - You can use bindi to decorate any
craft project! Try decorating photo frames, bangle display
stands, mirrors, bulletin boards, or doll house furniture.
Use bindi with
broken bangle crafts! Let your creativity take over!
