We had a good experience with Ani. She did face painting, glittery tattoos and balloon twisting at our child's 3 year birthday party at a park. Everybody was happy. She was also good in responding right away if I had any questions before the party. Would recommend. Value for the money.

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!

Noella was super sweet! She did my henna for me for a music festival and it came out perfect! I had so many compliments everywhere I went about it. She was great in responding to me as soon as possible, and was very attentive to making sure that everything went as smooth as possible. I would definitely recommend her and will definitely be contacting her again in the future!

I had a Marvel Black Panther theme birthday party and what she had never done that facial design before. However a couple days before the event she had found a design showed it to me and on the day of the party the kids loved it. I loved it the parents loved it she did an awesome job. She was a very nice always smiling very professional I'm extremely happy that I hired her for my son's 5th birthday party. Though all of the children decided to get black panther she did do a couple other the designs that came out wonderfully as well. Her prices are also super reasonable. If you need a face painter that does arm designs and glitter tattoos and all that fun stuff I would definitely recommend her. I'm sure she'll probably beat this design so I just want to say thank you again so very much. Signed very happy mom.

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

This was our first opportunity to use Thumbtack and I’m impressed by how helpful the site is - it led us to the perfect professional for our 11 year old’s Henna party. Alpa of Sharda Dance Academy was easy and lovely to communicate with in advance of the party. She arrived exactly on time, was very sweet and also astute with the kids. I was only sad I was so busy during the party that I didn’t get a chance to get to know her better and maybe have a henna design of my own! I would give Alpa 5 more stars if I could !!!

    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 Capovilla has been hired at a few wineries I've attended. The kids love having their face painted by her because each face is a new canvas and each painting an original work of art. Since she takes her time and paints amazing works of art, the line sometimes can get a little long, but it's well worth the wait. If your kids (or adults) like face painting or henna tattoos, they'll love Shelley's-Style.com/

    About

    I make my own henna mix using a personally tested recipe with carefully chosen pure ingredients for safe, non-toxic, healthy, and very strong, dark, beautiful, lasting henna color. No toxic black henna! No chemicals! For tattooing, I am careful and clean. I follow OSHA bloodborne pathogen standards, use sealed-sterilized tips and tubes and new sterile needles every 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.
