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.

For my daughter’s 12th birthday, Amulya did henna tattoos for the kids and adult guests. Everyone was fascinated on how fast Amulya worked in creating different designs for everyone. Thanks for making our first henna tattoo experience a delightful one!

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 !!!

Henna By Rebeca

Rebeca is truly a fantastic henna artist! I've gotten henna done several times before, but this is the first time that the artist was so engaging and explained the cultural context and health benefits of henna. She answered all of my questions, and we were able to work together to choose a design. She worked very quickly but still gave a lot of attention to detail, which was very impressive! I would definitely recommend her to anyone, not only if you want a work of art on your body, but also for some knowledge.

Silvana was great. She was on time and after tattooing the bride-to-be she did henna tattoos on everyone else who wanted one. I know she stayed later than the prearranged time to accommodate all of our desires. I definitly would reccommend her service.

4 Large and Intricate tattoos done by Ross. He is a great artist and a great person. I travel extensively around the world and have seen and have had work done by others and no doubt Ross is one of the best. Every time I come to Ross with an idea he not only meets my expectations but always exceeds them. Thinking of a tattoo talk to Ross. I travel from pretty far away to have Ross do my work and now use him exclusively. Great artist.

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/

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.
