Fun time watching all the kid get hanna tattoos. Artist did nice free hand work with the kids
We had Christina over to do henna for my step-daughter's 14th birthday party and it was awesome!! The girls all love their hennas and Christina was great!! It was such a fun time and I highly recommend her for any party! Unfortunately I only got the one pic but I wanted to show off her work. Love it!
I highly recommend Christina's henna tattoo service! She was great with communication prior and during the event, prompt, arrived early, her henna designs were beautiful and all guests really seemed to enjoy the interactions with her! Thank you Christina for coming to our party and sharing your talent with us!
I loved having Christina at my birthday event. She was definitely the highlight of the party! Everybody wanted henna done. And she did absolutely beautiful work! The next day, all of my friends that attended were posting photos of Christina's henna work on Facebook.
Christina was professional and great to talk to. I would definitely(and will again in the future!) hire and recommend her! She also sent me a card thanking me for hiring her. She's great. :)
Christina, thank you so much for coming to my birthday event! You were wonderful :)
I'm sorry this took me so long to do!
My daughter had a graduation party and this was just cherry! None of her friends had a henna artist so her party really stood out from the rest. As well, the henna table was nonstop busy with every person wanting a tattoo! I will definitely be choosing this again for more parties, as well as recommending her to my clients at my tax office!
Christina was excellent but my curser did not move over the last star for adaptability correctly - she was ver adaptable
We hired Al Huda to do Henna and Glitter tattoos at the relay for Life event in Western Berks. It was a big success and Christina was great and ver accomodating. I would definelty have her again.

What to Expect
Natural Henna Body Art temporary tattoo service. I provide my own products. I primarily use natural henna which is imported from India and hand-mixed with only lemon juice, sugar, and pure essential oils. Jagua, waterproof body art paint, glitter, and gilding are available for an additional fee. My best work is freestyle designs, although I can follow a picture for inspiration/guidance. If necessary, I do have small design ideas for events; however, for larger events it may be wiser to restrict the number of options available, as choosing a design can be a lengthy process and can hold up the line.
I first discovered henna in 2007. I was instantly attracted to the rich color and intricate designs. I wanted to learn how to make the designs myself, so after two years of extensive research and practice, I started doing henna professionally. All of my designs are free-hand. I do often look at pictures for inspiration or guidance, but each of my designs are unique, due to the fact that I can never precisely replicate a design (even my own creations).
Additional Booking Notes
I generally require a table, at least 2 chairs, an electrical outlet, and ample lighting.

Influences & Inspiration
My art is largely influenced by many different worldly cultures, traditions, and themes. Influence and inspiration comes from many places, depending on the theme of the event, the personality of the client being serviced, and/or the nature or purpose for having henna done.
Arabic, Middle Eastern, Indian, Native American, Persian, Asian, and Celtic symbols, history and traditions are all just a short list of cultural influence that play a major role in the inspiration for my work. Additionally, random symbols and tattoo-like images help to inspire my artwork. Since the art of henna is extraordinarily diverse and adaptive, there is no singular influence or core of inspiration for the designs that I create.
