Our face painting/balloon artist was really great with the kids. She had a sweet demeanor and even came dressed as a character from Frozen. I thought you did a great job on the face painting. To be honest I didn't think the balloon animals were just ok. But I thought her face painting was really nice. The parents seem to like it as well. I recommend people hiring her. Her bid was much more expensive than the other bids *$100 more* But I figured because she can do balloons and paint faces she would be worth it. & I liked the professional website and payment option. In hindsight I probably would've asked to get no balloon animals and paid a little less. Otherwise, I think she did a great great job. I gave a 5 for professionalism, demeanor and face painting.

Annie was very friendly and the kids enjoyed her. She has an artists syle to her graphics and the characters were nicely painted. The color on some could be more vivid. I would hire her again. She may want to include in her post that the fastest way to communicate with her is via electronic mail on Thumbtack.

Barbara came to a house party where we were honoring a teacher retiring. She was early and wanted to help us get ready. She offered to stay until everyone that wanted a tattoo got one. Quality of work was excellent. I highly recommend her.

Sarah Joy was very professional and did great work. We needed a henna artist for a school dance so she worked on quick designs the week before so that she could work efficiently. She started working right away without direction and she offered several choices of designs. Kids described her as polite and appreciated that she asked if they were happy with their designs.

I asked Shannon to do henna tattoos for a "Surprise Girls Only Party" for my moms 40th birthday and she didn't disappoint. All the woman who attended the party and wanted a tattoo were very pleased and excited to have something new and non permanent on their bodies. Shannon is so sweet, kind, and straight forward. I only paid her for three hours and she insisted on coming early to set up and get started on people who came right away, as well as, staying later to make sure everyone who wanted one got one. Henna art is a great party favor and/or activity for all ages and Shannon is definitely the one to go to.

Amulya was amazing! I hired her for our corporate holiday party and she was a hit with the crowd. Her free style designs are amazing and got the crowd talking. She even was able to tattoo our company mascot on one of our employees. I would recommend Amulya for any party or wedding. These tattoos can bring your event up to the next level. Hire Amulya!

Rebecca was great she was full of information regarding how to care for the tattoo also how important it it's not use black ink because of its hazardous effects. I have 4 stars because I wish she could have brought with her a portfolio of different pics for hands and shoulder that we could have chosen from but overall she was great

She is awesome, it was a large party, and she did not stop to rest although her arm was tired as I noticed. She was doing face painting and her artistic talents are super!! She was right on time and had all her gear with her to do the job. Extremely easy to work with. I would give her 10 stars Peter Muhhawieh you could pass this review to anyone who wants to hire her.

Noella is an extremely professional henna artist. She’s always on time and she’s great with every kind of henna design. She makes her own henna and it’s stains really quick and stays for about 3 weeks.

I've got over a dozen tattoos, and Ross has done the best of them. He does great lines, genius shading and always has an awesome color scheme. Not only does Ross know how a tattoo should look, he knows how to execute it. He's a real artist. If I have an idea, he can draw it up like I want. It always comes out way better actually. I really like that he works out of a private studio. No wing nuts off the street.

Shelley is an amazing artist. We had her do all the artwork for our babies room (baby is now almost 6 weeks old). She free-hand painted (!) directly on the walls and everything looks amazing. She painted mommy and baby hippos, a pair of giraffes, mischeivous monkeys, penguins, turtles, a bird and scenery right onto the wall!! She also made wooden cutouts of mom and baby elephants, an adorable zebra and a baby giraffe. We are so grateful that she made our babies room beautiful and unique. I wish I could post pictures to show you. Everyone who sees the room is in awe. Shelley is truly talented and willing and able to create whatever you wish (and she has the amazing ability to improvise as well if you're not exactly sure what you want). I give her a seven star rating!
