Melanie Elizabeth - Artist

Melanie Elizabeth - Artist I'm a professional artist, specializing in body art such as face and body painting, henna, and special FX. I'm also a bodypaint model and costume designer.

I have been doing henna for about 10 years now, first with Klown Kapers, Inc in Tallahassee, and then at EPCOT in the Morocco pavilion. I decided to create my own business as it has become my joy and passion. Henna is a beautiful art form, and has been used for centuries to decorate the hands and feet of brides and party-goers. It is a wonderful way to celebrate any event, be it a wedding, engagem

Creating a new Poison Ivy cosplay was such a blast! I think I might have to actually make this one of my permanent cosplays, and get her a real outfit, instead of a cocktail dress. lol

I decided to do the largest henna I have probably ever done. This took about an hour, and yes, I did this on myself. The hardest part was the roses, as I had to do them upside down.

Now that my book is done, and for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, I've decided to do henna for anyone who would like it, without hourly rates. I will happily have you over to my house, or meet at a coffee shop, or wherever you are comfortable!

Full hands: $20 (Normally $30+)
Medium Designs: $10-$15 (Normally $20-$30)
Small designs: $5 (Normally $10)

Basically half off, on any design you choose! If you're interested, please message me. This sale will continue for a couple of weeks, as I am sure everyone is busy throughout the actual Thanksgiving weekend.

In the process of making my book of designs! As you can see, coffee is required!
