Jacquee and Arlene are so great to work with! Jacquee was so patient, especially with the girls I had with me on my wedding day - I love my girls, but some can be quite picky! I would definitely recommend Jacquee for your wedding day, or any special day. I had two hair & makeup trials with Jacquee and she accommodated very well with me! She drove out to the city and I felt comfortable with her. 5 stars!

Ms. Shelia did an excellent job for my son's birthday party at his preschool. She takes pride in her work, and it shows because there were several parents requesting her services after the party. My son's teacher mentioned Ms. Shelia was the best face painting artist the school has had. She has superb customer service and very accommodating. She painted 15 kid's full face, with detail, within an hour. I highly recommend her services. My son's party was a big success and the children were very happy with having their face painted.

Brooke and Dan were fantastic!! They arrived with art boards in hand so kids could quickly choose a fun (and fast!) design. I saw dozens of happy girls walking around with rainbow colored butterflies and boys looking like awesomely fierce pirates. The glitter tattoos were also an amazing hit with everyone at our festival. I cannot praise them enough!! -- Tim McLaughlin Federation Medicine Man Algonquin Longhouse Indian Guides and Princesses Chairman, Indian Guides and Princesses 90th Anniversary Celebration

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.
