I booked with Anthony for my child's kindergarten Graduation party and he was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. He returned my calls quickly and answered all questions I had. He was very organized and made transaction extremely easy. His prices were very reasonable especially for the quality. I ordered a face painter, glitter tattoo artist, and balloons sculpting. He sent two employees to do their job and they were such a pleasure to have. They were everything Entertainement should be at a children's party happy and full of smiles. Thanks!!!! I will be using again!!!!

Sana was such a pleasure to have at my birthday brunch! I booked her as a surprise for my guests. It was a bit difficult to get into the restaurant I chose for brunch because of a movie filming (typical NY). Sana texted me to mention that she was running a bit late but on her way and did what was necessary to arrive as quickly as she could. She was super attentive and worked at lightning speed. She managed to complete 13 beautifully crafted henna designs in an hour and a half! This in itself was a task considering that initially she was going to do simple designs on my guests but after they became aware of the surprise, a handful of my guests were super excited and started researching designs for her to replicate! She handled the situation gracefully and professionally and did everything in her power to make sure everyone was happy. I received a ton of praise from my guests for hiring her! If you're on the fence about choosing her, don't be! I HIGHLY recommend Sana's henna tattoo service. You will not be disappointed!

Krissy was great. She has a lovely calm and yet super fun energy and really made my daughters 7th birthday party special. She is tremendous value for money as she has a whole bag of tricks up her sleeves to keep the little ones occupied and happy. As soon as she left they all started running around and creating chasos. So I realised what a great influence she had been. She broad beads, face paint and is the most talented face painter ans balloon modelling artist I had ever encountered ! It all seems effortless. What a talented lady.

    About

    I offer custom tattoos that will satisfy one's need to get a piece of art on their skin. I sit down with every client on a face-to-face consultation and discuss in depth what it is the client exactly wants. My style gravitates more towards an illustrative and colorful tattoo, which can take on any idea or concept and make it become a reality. I have an extensive art background beyond tattooing which helps with those especially difficult tattoo designs/concepts. I pride myself in having an easygoing attitude and not displaying the rock star persona that many tattoo artists have these days.

My name is Dan Castellano; I own and operate the shop. I am one of inky a handful of trained artists in Japanese tebori "hand poke" tattoos. I also specialize in cover ups. I'm a trained tebori artist taking on new clients.

    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.
