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.
Reviews for Rancho Cucamonga henna artists
Thumbtack Customer
Dhara is THE most amazing and professional artist! Not only did she contact me promptly but after I booked her services, she also maintained communication and followed up on all details for my daughter's quinceanera. Dhara was also able to provide excellent options for our Bollywood themed party, from decorations to Indian deserts to Bindi for my daughter! She came all the way to Rancho Cucamonga, arrived on time and was sooo friendly with all guests! During her 4 hour artistry, she was able to accommodate all requests, from designs for kids around 6-9 years old to teenagers that wanted specific unique designs that they found online and even adults who wanted "freestyle" traditional designs. What made it even more special was that she made my daughter such an intricate and grandiose design that she felt like a princess! Dhara also used glitter for that perfect sparkle on the henna tattoos. It was an absolute pleasure working with Dhara and I cannot wait to experience her services again. This was the first time using Thumbtack and I had such a positive result - I am so thankful to Dhara for helping to make my daughter's 15th an amazing day!!! Thank you Dhara!!! =)
