Brief overview of Henna.
Henna is an all natural die made of plant, lemon, sugar, rose oil. Once the tattoo is on the body, it takes about 10-15 min to dry, once the tattoo is dry I suggest for best color and longevity that the paste stay on the body for at the bare minimum 1hour. The longer the henna paste remains on the skin the longer the tattoo will stay and the darker the color will appear. Then the paste is rubbed off the body. The tattoos should remain on the skin for 1-3 weeks on average depending on aftercare.
1. What is the size capacity to do a job?
I have previously worked festivals,events and parties and am confident in my capacity of work. Acceptable henna party sizes can range from 1-200, depending on hours reserved.
2. On average about how long does a design take, per person?
The time of each tattoo depends on the detail of the design. A simplistic design can take under 5 min and a more complicated or traditional bridal henna can take up to 2 hours. I come early to set up (I have own table, chairs and design book/boards/sign) I begin charging my hourly rate from the time the first tattoo is started or within 10min of completion of set up, which ever comes first.
3. How do you base your rates? Hourly, per person, party size etc.
My hourly fee is $75 each hour, for the first three hours and $40 each hour for every hour after that. The hourly rates can be broken into increments of ½ hrs after three full paid hours. Some prices may be negotiable. You can also schedule individual or group appointments, then the prices are based by the detail, size and Intricacy.
4. How much time do you think would be necessary for a party?
Timing is based on the size of the party and the selected designs. From my history, it normally takes people more time to pick out designs than the actual time it takes to put on, but I do give an allotted grace period of 10min when setting up, many people take this time to narrow down some designs.
