Why hire New World Henna?
100% natural henna temporary body art for all occasions, including bridal henna, parties, pregnant bellies, fairs, festivals, events and individual application. We serve the Memphis, TN and the Mid-South areas.
Our primary craft is henna body art. Henna is a paste made from the leaf of the henna plant which contains a natural dye. The paste is piped onto the skin in beautiful designs and sits on the skin for 3-6 hours so that the dye can sink in. After that paste is removed, the stain is orange at first and turns to a reddish-brown color in 2 days. The stain then gradually fades away over the next 2 weeks.
We also do glitter tattoos which last 1 week.
Hello! I am Beth Kitchen (formerly Hendrickson) and I am the owner of New World Henna. People always ask me how I ended up doing henna for a living and I always reply with a laugh, "I have a music degree so I have no idea how this happened". My background is music- I taught middle school band for 2 years and I used to play sax in a wedding band for about 3 years. Then went on to be a corporate computer trainer and parlayed that into software testing and on to instructional design. Then one day at a renaissance fair, I got one of these intriguing "temporary henna tattoos". A few years later, I saw an ad for a local Indian beauty shop and was once again entranced by this beautiful art form. I immediately went home and ordered my first henna kit on the internet and haven't looked back since. Gradually, I grew my henna business, working festivals, parties and doing Indian/Arabic bridal work and managed to turn it into my full time job and I love it!

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 240 minutes
For private parties, I bring a design book with small to medium sized designs that can be done quickly. The book includes popular "tattoo" style designs as well as traditional Indian henna style designs. I can do about 15 designs per hour. I apply the henna design and ask the client to leave it on the skin for a few hours so that the dye can sink in. I also give each person a card with care instructions for future reference. I make sure to tell them that the stain lasts about 2 weeks.
