The children enjoyed the experience they seemed to pleased. And that what mattered the most. I didn't hear anything negative, except for a fee little boys that wanted a second tattoo/painting and didn't like that they had to wait until all of the children that wanted at least one painting go through the line. Mimzy wasn't pleasant with the kiddos.

    We had a birthday party at our home for ten 3-5 year olds, and Morgan did an excellent job with all the (repeated) requests for balloon shapes and face painting. The children (of all ages) all had a great time! Thanks Morgan, I will definitely recommend your services to anyone who is considering balloon twisting/face painting for their party!

    This place is great & JT always does great work. If you are in the area and want to get some nice ink done or a piercing you should check it out! Also that guy mentioned in the previous comment with the Megan's law hasn't worked there for about two years so no worries about that!

    I have been going to Addictive Expressions for several years and will go no where else. I tell people that even if I move away I will travel back to the area for a tattoo. Jen and Riley are so nice and easy to work with. Their work is amazing and simply perfect. The studio is clean and well organized. Their design work is spectacular. And of course the tattoos are simply perfect in every way. Stop in and see them, they will answer any questions you have and make you feel comfortable and welcome at the same time! Thank you Jen and Riley for your awesome work!

    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.
