Shawn S - Virginia Henna Tattoo Artists

Shawn S

Shawn became interested in mehndi when she joined a Middle Ages Living History group about 7 years ago. After playing around with her own designs, a friend of hers who'd lived in India applied her wedding mehndi. It was then that Shawn realized she had much to learn, and started to really research and practice a variety of designs from a wide array of cultures.

Her main interest lies in traditional mehndi designs, from Middle Ages to modern. She specializes in adapting Persian designs from tile work and rugs of the 9th-11th centuries, but enjoys doing designs from all cultures, as well as inventing new designs. Shawn can easily work from a pattern of your choice, but her best designs are done freehand. These designs work with the contours of the body, as well as the personality of the individual, to create a unique and beautiful body art.
