I’m excited to bring you this sponsored post about Saint Lucia’s own Henna Artist. As always, our aim at Island Effect is to be an excellent, trusty guide for you, so all opinions are our own!
Henna St. Lucia
Growing up I was always fascinated with vibrant colours and different cultures… so when I spotted the kiosk full of bright colours while walking through Baywalk Mall, I had to investigate! This is where I met Heera, the owner of Henna St. Lucia. She hails from India, but has lived in St. Lucia around five years now.
Henna tattoos for Carnival, Weddings and Photoshoots
Heera started practicing the art of Henna tattooing when she was 15 years old. Henna ‘tattoos’ are delicate body decoration made by staining skin with dyes from the Henna plant. Traditionally used in special celebrations in Northern African, Arabic and East Indian countries, Henna has evolved into a much-loved body-art enjoyed around the world.
Heera says she gets many requests for Henna during St. Lucia Carnival as revellers love to add intricate henna designs to complement their carnival outfits. The temporary henna tattoo stays on for approximately a week- just long enough to celebrate Carnival ‘Mass’!
But carnival isn’t the only occasion of course! The intricate designs are making their way into island weddings and fashion photo-shoots as a perfect detail for special occasions.
