Since time immemorial, women in Asia & East Africa have adorned their skins with ornamental inscriptions & decorations. Artists who practice this ancient art, known variously as Mendhi or Mehendi, draw intricate designs and patterns on skin using a dye made from the henna plant. Depending upon dye strength, the tattoo ranges in color from dark orange to burgundy or brown. These tattoos are not permanent but generally remain on the skin for several weeks before fading away. .

Facial Expressions is so fortunate to know talented henna tattoo artists who are now generously sharing their knowledge & talent at many different types of Calgary events. Each artist has her own style but all draw upon traditional designs for inspiration & also include cartoon characters, whimsical designs, & realistic images in their repertoires of henna tattoo designs.  Some of our henna artists even use cosmetic glittery gels to add temporary pizzazz to already spectacular artwork. who is planning a birthday party.


Calgary community events, children’s birthday parties, wedding showers & even baby showers are all examples of the types of celebrations where guest will enjoy getting a henna tattoo. They are a great fit  with 60’s & 70’s “Hippie” theme parties which might be held for special wedding anniversary parties or even high school reunions.
