Prenatal body art has become very popular in recent years. Choose from henna or body paint. Both are nontoxic and safe for mom and baby. Complete ingredients lists are available below.
Prenatal body art can be a great addition to your shower or a special treat for yourself. Rates for groups or showers start at $85 per hour. One artists will spend about 30-90 minutes with the mother to be, depending on the design, and can do a small to medium sized design for each guest in 3-7 minutes a piece. For private appointments there is a minimum one hour fee for house calls, or schedule to make an appointment at our location with no minimum. In this case rates depend on the complexity and size of the design.
If you’re having your art done for a prenatal photo session, please schedule your henna to be done two days in advance of photography. For body paint, schedule for the same day. We’re even glad to meet you at the studio when circumstances permit!
Timing for prenatal art can be tricky! Many of our prenatal clients never get the art they were planning on because they delivered before their appointment. Don’t wait until the last minute. We encourage women to schedule for a time AT LEAST two full weeks before their due date.
