About this pro

How does your business stand out?

While I respect tradition and am skilled at traditional techniques, I take my henna art above and beyond that. I venture out into new ways of doing designs and embrace the idea that anything can be drawn or done on the body in henna, not just sangeet or bridal henna from specific regions. While I adore the floral and intricate designs that have been around for hundreds of years, I enjoy and even excel at moving outside of that box and making it something new and fresh. I try to make every piece of henna I do special for that person.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I get to be creative, work with a wide variety of people, and do something I love. Henna is about expressing yourself and I love that I get to help people express themselves while doing so myself.

    Face painting at our company picnic. Veronica was fantastic, this kids absolutely loved her painting! We already had a report of a child crying because she had to wash her face before bedtime! Her skills were an amazing plus to our picnic!

    Veronica at Hennatopia helped us out with our company picnic and she was a huge hit. We decided to get both the henna and face painting services and she was in such a high demand that we had her stay even later. The only thing that could have been better was that the henna stain stayed a light color on several people even when left on over five hours. Other than that I would definitely recommend her!

    Veronica came to our company summer picnic and was amazing! She showed up early to set up, did an amazing job with both the henna and the glitter tattoos, and was very personable. I would definitely recommend Veronica to others and I will keep her in mind for future events.

    We loved Veronica! She was fast and WONDERFUL, all the paintings were amazing. She had a line of kids (and parents) waiting for the fun, and she handled the craziness well. I would recommend Veronica for any party or fun event!

    I have loved every henna piece that I have gotten. It is always intricate and beautiful, and she always makes sure to explain how to make it last the longest. I am actually really excited to get it done again!

    My first experience with Hennatopia was when I purchased an "artist's choice" henna design at a fair. I couldn't have been happier with the beautiful art she created. The quality of the henna used was very good, and lasted much longer than I've experienced from other henna artists in the past. My second experience was at an intro to henna class she conducted, which was a ton of fun and incredibly informative. I can't say enough good things!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I recently attended a henna conference where I learned from some of the leading artists in the country.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
A few years ago I was going through a medical procedure. I wanted to decorate my body with good luck charms, but wanted to use something that was natural, safe, and would last for several weeks. I knew about henna and so got some and used it. I was impressed and pleased with the result. It was also something very fun to do. Over the following years I practiced on myself, friends, and family. The last step that made me decide to make this a business was when I decided to do henna at a small fundraiser. It went very well and from that I was hired to do a birthday party. Everyone kept telling me I should pursue this as a profession. I finally decided to follow the advice!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Parties are probably the most common event that I am hired for. Usually these are birthday parties for teenagers. Henna makes a great activity for any party, however, and will allow guests to remember the good times they had for one to four weeks after.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Avoid black henna at all costs. Black henna is not henna. It uses a chemical known as PPD which is not approved for use on the skin. While some people may not have any reactions, others have serious reactions. Some of these reactions are swelling, pain, scarring and nerve damage. Henna should always be a brown color and when it dries look raised up on the skin. Real henna is made from a powder that is green in color and mixed with an acidic liquid (lemon juice, vinegar, tea, etc) and sometimes essential oils. If the pictures shown to you are black and flat, that is black henna and dangerous.
