My name is Mishelle Wade.  I am an all-natural traveling henna artist based in NW Austin, Texas.  I fell in love with the ancient art of henna over 8 years ago and am passionate about sharing it with everyone.  

My work is done mostly intuitively/freestyle on my clients to create a unique design based on their personalities using symbols and designs they need in their present lives.  Inspirations include nature, southwestern art, modern tattoo art, folk art, illustrative design and body jewelry. Henna is for everyone, in all walks of life! 

Henna has history all over the globe including Arabia, South Asia, Carthage, Europe and North Africa.  Evidence suggests henna originated in Ancient Egypt! I love nature and use this plant based dye (henna aka Lawsonia inermis) to create unique adornment to wear for 1-3 weeks.  I am self-taught and have recently made the trip to HennaCon(October 2017), one of the largest henna conventions in the United States to advance my skills and meet other industry pros.  I use paste I mix myself containing pure essential oils, and organic Body Art Quality henna powders.  Clients include: GOOGLE, Origins, Lush and more!

Never use black henna! I now offer Jagua as an alternative colored stain (navy blue to black/gray.)  Jagua is a natural dye from a fruit, Genipa americana.  I source my Jagua gel from Brazil..  It is completely different from henna and I only offer it upon request.  Because I cannot make it the way I mix henna it is more expensive.  

At this time I do not offer "white henna." ("white henna" is topical adornment and does not stain the skin.. Much like body paint. It is NOT henna but is referred to as "white Henna" because people use it to do the same types of designs that are typically done in henna.)
