A+++++!!! All of my guests left with smiles on their face. I hired a face painter, tattoo artist and balloon twister and all three of them were outstanding! Everyone was impressed with the amount of detail put into each face painting. Do book Creative Faces for your event. You will not be disappointed!

With Dhara, it was a simple phone call to make all the necessary arrangements. I never got to interact with her at the event as she literally walked into the event, sat down, and never stopped working. The best thing was the guests thought she was the best feature of the event and loved how great her work was. The only issue I didn't anticipate with the time to do 1 henna tattoo. My guests kept wanting Dhara to tattoo and others were waiting, which is a testament to their happiness with Dhara and her work. Will definitely use her again for events!

We hired Sonia for her services at the University of San Diego for a basketball game. Throughout the entire process of coordinating things for the day Sonia was very professional and responsive. She also was able to make a custom stencil for the glitter tattoo's which was great! Sonia and her sons were amazing and we would definitely love to have them back again.

We wanted something fun, different and safe for both my daughters 16th and 13th birthday. The tattoo artist was AMAZING! I thought only the teen girls would want tattoo's but once we all saw the quality of this beautiful art, the boys & adults wanted to be tattooed as well. Everyone enjoyed getting these beautiful henna tattoos and for those few who didn't, they enjoyed watching the artist. She is truly talented. Thank you so much for making my kids birthday fun and beautiful.

Oriana was amazing! She came early to set up and she stayed later because kids kept coming to her for more! Everyone talked about how impressive her designs were. I was very impressed with her personal touches. We had a sports theme party and she arrived with a soccer theme crown on her own face and had a lot of sports glitter tattoos and face painting options. She is also more affordable than the other places we considered. I cannot recommend her enough!

I hired Claudia for my twin daughters' birthday party. She was so professional, showed up on time & entertained my guests with her brilliant painting skills. Young or old, everyone at the party got their face painted. What sets her apart from other face painting that I've seen is the art. She truly is an artist...not some cheesy 3 color stencil art. I'd highly recommend her work to friends as well as hire her again =)

awesome, awesome experience. She was very thorough and detailed, working through several pictures that I was inspired by and created her own work of art that imbued that feel. High quality as well as reasonable pricing (very reasonable!!). Will for sure go back again for future artwork.

I got my first air brush tattoo wit her OC Airbrush, and I was pleased with prices, selections of tattoos designs, and how professional they did the work. The quality of the tattos shows in the ink they have. I would definitely get another air brush tattoo and recommend them to anyone who is looking to get an Air Brush tattoo

Loved my Cool Henna Tattoo - I picked an image and Rozine meticulously, but quickly, applied the henna and then sprinkled it with a glitter in the color of my choice (aqua), which keeps the henna from smearing and is pretty and sparkly. When the glitter came off, I had a beautiful henna tattoo - it lasted a long time and I received so many compliments!

I hired them during the summer of 2015 to do the makeup for my best friends wedding and our bridesmaids. She was extremely thorough in all emails and the details of the contract were very clearly explained and so easy to understand! I was a little hesitant of only have one makeup artist for 8 women with a 5 hour time frame but she made us feel very relaxed. It was super nice to have only on girl busy at a time so we could keep up our shenanigans and not feel like we were really "getting ready." I would suggest to future clients to research the looks you want and pay for a trial session!!! We loved our makeup, but it would have been closer to what we wanted if we sat down with her, detailed everything out, and gave it a try first. I'll definitely be hiring her for my wedding... Whenever that is! Lol

I do clean work in a safe environment and free touch up work. Do you ever walk into a tattoo shop and walk out feeling like the guys working there are huge a-holes? It happens alot. I'm A Custom artist so the consultation process is one of the most important parts of my job. We don't start your tattoo until you and I both are completely satisfied that you are getting what you will be happy with for life. I love custom vivid color, but I am well rounded and even do black and gray portrait work. My portfolio is on display for all to see and I take alot of pride in what I do so that you can be proud of your new tattoo!

My work stands out through the quality and time put into the training. I'm a professionally trained makeup artist and face painter. I have trained many Southern California artists including Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland face painters. I've obtained early childhood development credits and know how to work well with young children. My customer care is A+ as Disneyland has taught me well.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How long does a henna tattoo stay on?

Typically a henna tattoo stays on anywhere from one to three weeks. Henna artists work with henna paste, also called mehndi, which dyes the skin for a short period of time. An important part of Indian culture, the use of henna has become increasingly popular in the United States, with henna artists providing henna tattoos for weddings, as event entertainment and for other special events. Henna artists typically apply their designs to the palms and backs of the hands, the wrists, up to the elbows, and from the feet up to the knees. To preserve the rich color of your henna tattoo and help it set, avoid water as much as possible within the first 24 hours of application. The color will be richest during the first week. Brides may want to have their henna tattoos applied one or two days before the wedding for optimal results.

What is the meaning behind henna tattoos?

Henna tattoos, as they are called in the United States, have a long tradition in Indian, African and Middle Eastern cultures. For centuries, the leaves of dried henna plants have been ground into a fine paste to be used as a temporary and nontoxic skin dye. This form of body decoration has been used in celebrations, weddings and ceremonial rites of passage in many cultures. Often in Hindu weddings, henna artists decorate the hands and feet of the bride (and at times the groom) with intricate designs. In some Muslim traditions, henna artists paint women with henna designs as they are in their final stages of pregnancy. In the United States, popular culture has adopted this beautiful body art and henna artists provide brides (and sometimes grooms) with temporary henna tattoos. Henna artists are also a popular choice for entertainment at corporate events, birthday parties, bachelorette parties and festivals. Henna artists may charge anywhere from $10 to $300 per hour.

How much does it cost to get a henna tattoo?

Nationally, the average cost to hire a henna artist is between $100 and $180 per hour. Rates will vary by location and the experience of the individual henna artist; it’s possible to find artists who charge less than $50 per hour. Some henna artists charge an hourly rate, especially for corporate events or festivals where they are providing service to multiple people within an hour. They may also charge flat rates for bridal and wedding services or special events. Here are some examples of average cost:

  • Hourly rate: $65-$85 or more per hour. Price is dependent on event size and number of attendees.
  • Starting rate for minimal palm designs: $15 or more.
  • Henna tattoos covering the hands and wrist and bottom of feet up to the ankle: $175.
  • Henna tattoos covering the hands to the mid-arm and feet to above the ankle: $300.
  • Henna tattoos covering the hands to the elbow and the feet to the knee: $450.
