Wendy R - Oregon Henna Tattoo Artists
Wendy is an ICNHA (Internationally certified) henna artist in Portland, Oregon. She is a long time student of henna and related body arts (Harquus, Zardosi, and Indigo) and the cultures and traditions associated with henna. Wendy has a BA in cultural studies and worked for several years in New York state as a High School and Middle School art teacher, and also providing in depth workshops and intensives on the Art, History and Culture of Henna to adults and children throughout New York.
Since Wendy moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2006 her services have been widely received throughout Oregon and Washington.She has provided henna at the Portland Rose Festival, Salem World Beat Festival, and the Portland Pirate fest as well as for Macy’s department stores, Tualatain Parks and Recreation, Gypsy Caravan Bellydance Studios and numerous weddings for families of all cultures.
Wendy only uses fresh natural henna powder (lawsonia inermis), lemon juice, sugar and safe essential oils in her henna paste. She will NEVER use so called “Black Henna” at any event, ever, or recommend its use to customers.
Elaborate designs can take anywhere from 15-20 minutes to 2 hours to complete. Bridal work will always require longer periods of time to complete due to the intricacy, placement, and coverage desired by brides and their families. For Bridal events and Sangeets where more than one person will be receiving elaborate henna, a second top quality henna artist is recommended to work with guests and family members, while Wendy works with the Bride.
