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.

Alpa did both my husband's and my henna tattoos on the same day and we we're satisfied with the results. She was very friendly and hospitable. She let us hang out at her pool area afterwards as to let our tatoos dry out completely. I would definitely recommend her services.

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

Pai with Love Henna Tattoo was simply amazing! I hired her for a 2 day event with State Farm at the Arab American Festival. We were by far the most popular booth & I believe that was due to Pai. She was extreamly friendly, hardworking, and more then willing to accomidate any requests. I highly recommend her for any events.

    About

    I am a tattoo artist specializing in custom color tattoos. I prefer designing original pieces and not using artwork design by other artists. However, I love working together with clients and will use existing artworks, chosen by the client, as reference to create the perfect original piece that truly suits the individual aesthetic taste. I usually require a consultation before the tattoo appointment because I do not believe in rushed, last minute tattoos. I want my clients to have something they will truly cherish forever.

    About

    We will do our best to get you exactly what you want, but also take to time to advise you on what not to do, and in doing so you will have a tattoo that you love, and one that will last a life time!

    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.
