Henna Tattoos with Maria O'Connor New

Maria O'Connor

  • The cost for henna starts at $10 and goes up incrementally based on the size and complexity of the design you choose, usually no more than $35 or so. She also welcomes the opportunity to do sacred symbols or custom designs beginning at $15 and increases depending on the design size and complexity. 
  • Maria will be taking clients on a first come first serve basis. She works very fast so wait time is minimal.

Henna body art is the practice of laying on the skin a paste made from the henna leaves in intricate patterns on the skin. The paste is left to dry and remains on the skin  and then scraped off, leaving an orange stain that darkens to a final black cherry or coffee colored stain in about 24 hours. The best stains are achieved on the hands and feet, other areas such as the belly, back and chest will stain a lighter color. With frequent moisturizing with a natural oil like olive oil, the henna stain can last up to 2 weeks. Henna is different from tattooing in that there is no invasion of the skin with pigment with a needle, it is similar to frosting a cake, and is painless and quite relaxing.  

Maria uses fresh, natural paste that she personally makes for each client, rather than premade, chemical filled henna cones. She insists on only the best henna for her clients to achieve optimal results. In addition, Maria has years of extensive experience with henna and carries full liablity insurance, for your peace of mind.  

Maria is looking forward to sharing her beautiful henna with everyone!

This is a free event!
