We offer temporary body art services in the form of organic henna.
I apply all henna completely freehand using paste I blend in-house with the finest organic ingredients.
We place a strong emphasis on product safety and appearance. Therefore, black henna is NEVER offered because of its dangerous side effects, and Jagua is NOT offered because of a small possibility of an allergic reaction and its similar appearance to black henna.
Our extensive body art design collection is constantly expanding with most designs being exclusive to Island Girl. I love custom design collaboration so share your ideas and let's create something beautiful just for you!
We are Jeanette & Chris Harper, the owners of Island Girl... As high school sweethearts we grew up on an island off the coast of New England.
Over 30 years of traveling adventures together have taken us to some of our most memorable locations like Nantucket, Block Island, Long Island, Florida’s Suncoast, sailing Penobscot Bay, Sicily in the Mediterranean and tropical destinations throughout the Caribbean islands.
The name Island Girl was chosen to encompass the images conjured by island life - the sea, lush greenery, sunshine, sailing, those little umbrellas, your toes in the sand and "Whoah! Is that a mermaid?!"
Since 2009 Island Girl has been a woman owned small business running shipshape and clipper fast.
Decades of business experience and natural artistic abilities have created a successful henna career that broke the 'starving artist' mold. I'm grateful to my teachers - some of the industry's most renowned artists including Nic Tharpa Cartier, Bhavna Naik, Nimisha Parekh, Neeta Sharma & Noam Sienna.
My husband, Chris, came aboard when the business expanded. His natural mechanical abilities and experience in facilities puts Chris right at home overseeing mechanical operations to venue management.
What do we bring to your event? When we combine doing something we love with knowledge, skill, experience and professional, friendly service - we smile, have a lot of fun (contagious!) and we get the job done right.
Every year our calendar fills with festivals, student activities for colleges & universities, corporate events, individual appointments and private parties. Much of this is influenced by the tide of the seasons, whose ebb and flow keeps things diverse year round. Contact us today and join the adventure!
Island Girl is owned & operated by Jeanette & Chris Harper in Delhi, NY and is not affiliated with any person, online identity or business of similar name.
