We recently had the pleasure of having Artist Kasia for Henna Tattooing and Face Painting at my daughter's 21st birthday surprise party. In addition we had Artist Mikey who does Caricatures. Both were a hit and everyone at the party enjoyed their artistry. Everyone was able to go home with either Henna Tattoo or a Caricature picture. They were on time, pleasant to talk with-nice, kind people, and VERY professional. I was amazed at the choices of paint that Kasia had and the VERY detailed work of Henna Tattooing. The Caricature drawings were fun to pose for and fun to look at. Everyone smiled at their picture. They set everything up and were ready for the small crowd at the party. Thank you to you both. N. Steeves

Erica was awesome! Despite the crazy hot muggy weather, she was amazing and truly treated every child as if it was their party! The face painting was phenomenal, but the jewels, tattoos and glitter made it even more special. A great addition to my four year old daughter's birthday celebration!

We hired Face Kapow on short notice for my daughter's 5th birthday party. Yossel was excellent. She was great with the girls and did a wonderful job face painting and giving the girls glitter tattoos. I would hire Face Kapow again and highly recommend them to anyone!

Carina did an excellent job at the Halloween Party we hosted and was sure to get through all the kids that wanted facepainting before the party was over. Her work is incredible and was most definitely the hit of the party! She even coordinated facepainting based on the children's Halloween outfits. My daughter did not want to wash her face last night :)

I challenged Linda to do a realistic lion on me ... something she had never attempted... she took it head on and did an amazing job... I'm a tattoo artist and people all thought it was a real tattoo. Linda constantly practices her drawing to improve as an artist. Her henna work is by far the best I have seen.

We hired Daisy the Clown for our opening day Baseball picnic. She spent 2 hours temporary tattooing around 100 children. She also stayed beyond her allotted time so everyone got what they wanted- and had a wide variety to choose from. She took pictures, and remained upbeat the whole time. We would definitely hire her back!

      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.
