I visited a few tattoo shops in Virginia Beach before I came upon SET. The first shops I went to, i was quickly dissmissed for a whole bunch of diferent reasons: Nobody was available; my concept was not duable; no availability until anytime soon, etc. I came across Studio Evolve on the internet and took a look at their page, and immediately was drawn tot he looks of the shop: Not crazy decorated, very welcoming feeling, and clean. I decided to stop in and inquire about getting some work done, and I asked to see Mattlock Lopes. I had seen his work and bio on the website and I liked it, jsut what i was looking for. I met with him, gave him my ideas and what I was looking for, and he seemed genuinly willing and excited about woking on it. I just let him come up with the design for my half sleeve, and now, jsut a couple hours ago, I have the best, most bad ass- half sleeve tattoo I could have ever imagined. He understood what I wanted and that is exactly what he gave me. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone looking into getting tattooed. The place is immaculate, and everybody is very professional.

Omg where do I began? Eboni really impressed me with her quality of service. She exemplified her quality of work by knowing which products work best and not just by showing but giving detail on each product. She addressed concerns I had that were not about the service she was rendering (ex: how to apply makeup). I went seeking Eboni services because I had previously had my eyebrows arched by another business and I was not satisfied with the outcome. Eboni addressed my concern and had a plan of action before she arrived. She isn't the typical esthetician that rush services. I had my eyebrows arched about 2.5 (maybe longer) and they are still arched. From previous experience I would have to go to the salon every week or two. I am highly pleased with the service rendered. I will definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking to be glamed/pampered. "Thank you Eboni for making my eyebrows look like eyebrows."

      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.
