Enjoyed working with Kim and Meagan! They did a great job and everyone enjoyed getting Henna tattoos and the caricatures were a big hit. Would definitely use them again.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lu. She's extremely talented, friendly and great with kids. My friends and family enjoyed watching her paint the kids faces and the children all loved seeing the spectacular designs she painted on their faces. I had a party for my 2 year old in our backyard. There was about 12 children ranging in ages and everyone had a blast. I would highly recommend funny faces for your event and I look forward to working with them again.

We were so impressed by Lisse. Several people at our graduation party took her card and want to book her for their events. She did amazing work with speed and did a fabulous job on pictures that people came up with on their phones. Her instructions were clear and both my daughter's henna tattoos still look amazing. I've heard several comments from guests that Lisse really made our party special.

We hired Sparkles for our elementary school's winter family carnival. Her team brought a photo booth, 2 balloon twisters, face painter, and a glitter tattoo artist. I can't tell you how many compliments I received about all the services provided, especially the face-painting! They are all very helpful, professional, and the kids loved them.

I recently hired Wahida for 2 of my events and she was outstanding, we loved her the first time that we hired her again for our 2nd event! She takes pride in her work and that's amazing to us. Her work is excellent and clean!! The henna looks amazing and we are all obsessed with it.. I would definitely recommend her to all.. She is young and fun too! I didn't and haven't stop getting compliments on my henna on my hands and feet. She also provides many types of henna, she has many colors to choose from... I can't thank her enough!! She's FABULOUS!!!

    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.
