Henna is a plant whose dried leaves have the ability to stain.
Henna body art is 1,300 years old. It's often called henna tattoos, hinna + mehndi.
My henna is blended in-house using the finest organic ingredients and I apply it completely freehand.
Henna appointments resuming after covid! I'm eager to get back to my clients and festivals, but until then please shop my art, albeit in a different form...
A screeching halt. The disruption caused by Covid had my henna world stop short. I could no longer do henna body art on people! How do I keep my business afloat until the pandemic is over??
Time to change course. Adapting was essential so I dove into my Sicilian heritage and found inspiration in Maiolica art and coupled it with my painting talents.
Lemons = Lemonade! To have my business survive + still be creative means the world to me. This positive change came from the most unusual circumstances and I'm extremely grateful to everyone who makes a purchase! Life gave me lemons so I make another kind of art!
List of Fairs + Festivals we attend
throughout the Upstate NY region.
Located in the Catskill Mountains, our Delhi NY henna studio is open by appointment.
We travel to do henna at parties, weddings, celebrations, functions, universities + more.
I will keep you in mind for future events, because I thought you were the best henna artist I saw in upstate NY. My mom and I are thinking of making a trip down to see you, actually. Thank you for your professionalism!
Great prices and great staff. I'm so impressed with the artwork that they draw out.
It was a pleasure to have you here and everyone really did enjoy your work! I will definitely be sharing your information as well as asking the upcoming president of ISO to re hire you for the upcoming year. Thank you once again!
Throughly impressed and enjoyed the entire process of booking Jeanette for a retreat, she was early, she was pleasant, she got right to work, made everyone feel special and paid attention to detail in giving everyone their own unique design. She even made a family of cardinals upon request that so delighted one of our guests! Would highly recommend her to anyone looking to add some color art to their body. My hand design was absolutely GORGEOUS and I so enjoyed the energy she brought to the retreat home!
Having henna done by Jeanette is a wonderful experience. Island Girl Body Art is not only a professional service where you leave with what you wanted, beautifully rendered body-art, but an opportunity to witness a skilled artisan at work.
Jeanette's commitment to customer satisfaction is in my opinion, exemplary.
There is nothing quite like being a canvas for her breathtaking henna.
I highly recommend Island Girl Body art and cannot say enough about how much I have enjoyed my experiences with Jeanette. Jeanette's passion for her craft is contagious and I would encourage anyone who is interested in having henna done to use Island Girl Body Art.
Thank you for doing henna at my Sangeet. All the guests were ecstatic over how on point your designs were. Even my Aunties were impressed. I wish I hired you to do my mehndi as well, your talents were far superior. It just proves you get what you pay for. I'll be recommending you to anyone else planning a wedding in the Catskills. Thank you again!
Everyone was gushing about your henna. You are really talented. I’m sooo happy to have met you before the wedding!
All of my husband's relatives LOVED my henna. His mom and Aunt said yours was so much better than theirs... Thanks again for doing such a spectacular job!!
I just wanted to thank you for showing us a great time. Everyone loved you and the henna you did. The girls truly enjoyed the experience.
