I'm not sure I can say enough great things about Fantasy Face Painting Plus. Not only was Stephanie amazing at communicating with me when booking my party she helped me by suggesting glitter tattoos instead of face painting for toddlers. What a great idea and suggestion! She knows her craft and knew that face painting may take a little too long for a wiggling 3 to 4 year old, but glitter tattoos would be a great alternative. It so was! They were a wonderful hit! I ended up booking two artists, a balloon twister and glitter tattoo artist. Not only did she show up early and set up was so easy they were so great with my party guests. Super patient with the more apprehensive kids that weren't too sure about getting a tattoo and overall wonderful demeanor and attitude. I truly appreciated one of the artists tracking me down (the hostess) about 20 minutes before they were due to leave to let me make an announcement for 'last call.' As the hostess to a party of 30+ guests I had lost track of time and I really loved that they didn't just pack up and leave once their time was up. Plus I wanted to score a tattoo before they left! Overall just a wonderful experience I will be sure to be booking Fantasy Face Painting Plus again. Great value and great experience.

They were very friendly and worked at a great pace. All of the kids were able to get tatoos and balloons and have plenty of time to play and show them off.

    She was amazing. I hired her for my 2 daughters 8th birthday party last July and she did a remarkable job. I would hire her again. If you want to hire an amazing face painter Adrienne is the one to hire.

      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.
