I called Ms. Williams just a few days before my Little Mermaid themed Adult BDay Bash. We decided on a price over phone and I was given the option of paying through Paypal before hand or cash at the party. She said it would be 3 people. 1 Balloon Twister and the 2 for the Face Painting/Tattoo items. She and her Ballon Twister person spared no supplies. They were fully prepared. They had so much variety and color. It was perfect. They were very patient and receptive to ideas for what each person wanted. Just some FYI for those reading. My party was very small. Under 20 people and I only ordered 2 hours worth. I recommend a minimum of 3-4 because they are very meticulous. All the art they perform takes time but does come out lovely. Also, if you love glittery and colorful stuff, she has a huge selection. Great attitude too!!

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.

All I can say Collette Nicole has everything I asked for. She can do amazing face painting, temporary tattoo, and even balloon twister for the kids. Kids were under control and never had to worry about them during the whole event. She's done a great job! We look forward to use her again next year! I'd recommend her to all of my friends and family. Thank you, Nicole!

Amazing! We hired Oriana for our little girl party and was couldn't be more pleased. We had a petting zoo and pony rides, but once Oriana arrived the kids abandoned the animals to get their faces painted. She was great with the kids and I couldn't be happier with her level of professionalism. The only negative thing I have to say is, my daughter loved her face painting so much we had a hard getting her to wash her face before bed. Thank you again Oriana..

Kiddie Clown was hired to face paint and keep the kids engaged at my family’s 6th annual family reunion. Not only did they please the little ones, but they entertained the older ones as well. The adults were lining up for their “tattoos” as well. “Kids” from 2 - 94 took advantage of these special treat. Here’s a picture of my magical unicorn. I’m crossing my fingers that Kiddie Clown makes a repeat appearance at our 7th next year!

We were at the Orange Street Fair. The booth was so cool. I saw two lines of people wanting the tattoos. Everyone was happy. I got a cool one too! Usually I never would, but it was so fun and it did wash off eventually. I highly recommend them!

Highly Recommend!! She is definitely an expert at henna. She was able to give me a custom lotus pattern on my hands that was absolutely beautiful. The henna lasted over a month with proper care. She taught me how to take care of my henna and gave me an amazing experience while she made art on my arms and hands. My henna tattoo experience with her was joyous I truly value this experience to this day.

    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.
