Art by Desi offers safe, natural henna and safe glitter body art for all occasions. From baby showers and belly blessings, to grad-night parties, and everything else in between and beyond.
For your enjoyment, health, and safety, Desi only uses 100% safe natural henna, mixed by her so she knows every ingredient, and she is an Internationally Certified Natural Henna Artist.
Please feel free to ask the ingredients in her paste, or let her know of allergies/skin issues you may have to make sure that the paste used on you is perfect for you!
Her rates are $125 an hour for 1 artist (min 2 hr booking), plus $25 an hour for travel. Other glitter artists can be added for an additional fee.
Desi was amazing! Very creative and talented. Will use her again for certain!

What to Expect
I have two basic setups. My very basic "Home Party" set up which is a chair, a small table, a small trash can, and my stool. From there, I can do all the henna and glitter you desire. This party set up starts at $60 an hour (before travel fees) and you get all the henna and freehand glitter body art I can do in that amount of time.
I also have a larger set up that is more for outdoor parties or large events. That includes a tent, a large table to hold my books and stencils (optional - additional fee required if a glitter stencil artist is requested in addition), my table, two chairs, a small trash can, and my stool. This party and set up starts at $100 an hour (before travel fees) and you get all the henna and freehand glitter body art I can do in that amount of time.
For very small and simple designs, I can service about 15 people per hour. For larger and more complex, please consider about 6 people per hour. If you want to offer glitter stencils (with a second artist) an additional fee applies.
As an Internationally Certified Natural Henna Artist, Desi strives to keep people safe while letting them enjoy the beauty of temporary body art. She's been working with henna professionally since late 2008, and has trained with some of the best artists in the world, including people like Neeta Sharma, Kim Brennan, Debi Varvi, Darcy Vasudev, Catherine Cartwright-Jones, Jessica McQueen and many many more!
