"She knew I was in the midst of looking for a henna artist and recommended Sameera. I saw their henna tattoos as guests and thought it was very well done and detailed. I then looked at Sameera’s work on Instagram and fell in love!!!!! I looked at every post and even bookmarked a few. Communication with Sameera was perfect; she was so responsive and professional in both emails and texting. Originally, Sameera was booked for myself and another artist for the bridesmaids and mothers on a Friday. My mother in law insisted on booking this other artist for the Mehdni party on Saturday, so I let it be. About a week before the wedding my mother in law informs me that the artist she booked (almost a year in advance, with a week reminder) had gotten the dates mixed up and could not be available on Saturday. The stories I read in reviews on issues with vendors had happened to me, and I was thankful I prepared myself for this. I immediately contacted Sameera via email hoping she could recommend someone at the last minute. And within two days she delivered fantastic news to me! Not only did she find available artists (I needed three), but she was also available that Saturday. Sameera arrived on Friday at precisely 10 am for my 7 hours of henna. She was so pleasant and sweet. Everything she needed she brought with her, and we didn’t even need to go over the details or designs because she recalled the requests I had made months ago in the paperwork. She had been working on the designs earlier that week because I had requested the henna to reach my elbows at a point. The designs on my arms included peacocks, which was great because it was the color theme of our wedding but without any display of peacocks or the feathers. She accommodated my two last minute requests to not fill my fingertips and to include a heart that included our initials and connected to the back of my hands. The design she provided was both planned and improvised which I was perfectly happy with. When it came to my feet, she followed the general layout of the picture I provided but also transformed it into her own style, which I loved. She took many photos of the progression and used those photos to determine if any additional details needed to be added. I had plenty of breaks, and I think towards the very end I was near falling asleep (I woke up very early due to excitement). Throughout the process, we spoke here and there, but I didn’t want to interrupt her work too much. In the end, Sameera’s work was so detailed, and her recommendations to maintain the staining was very helpful! Sameera was an absolute pleasure to work with. Samantha, who arrived at 7 pm sharp was the artist scheduled for the bridesmaid and my mother, and her work was so beautiful and delicate. I wish the girls had requested more henna, but it was delightful to see her style of henna. The additional two artists on Saturday also had wonderful styles of henna, which both of our families enjoyed. I would love to book Sameera again just to have henna for the fun of it."

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.

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.

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.
