1. Who are you, where are you from and what do you sell?
My name is Bhavna Naik and I am a henna body art artist. I also do glitter tattoos (stencil and freehand), temporary color tattoos and make jewelry. I also do henna, glitter and temporary tattoos at markets and festivals and by private appointments and parties like birthday, slumber, Sweet 16, Girls Night In, etc. I also teach henna to kids and adults. I am originally from Mumbai, India and now I live in Clarksburg, MD. My business is Bhavna’s Henna & Arts.
My family and friends encouraged me in February of this year and made me start this business since I am always creating stuff and love henna and jewelry. So far I love everyday of being an artist and it makes my soul smile. My vision for the future is to continually better my skills and teach and do mostly bridal henna, and parties.
3. Tell us why you do what you do. What is so special about your business?
I do what I do because it’s art that people don’t just see- they feel it in every cell of their body. They realize that they are my canvas and that they are walking pieces of art.
I make my own henna with only limejuice and essential oils, which is all natural and safe. I am very against people who do black henna cause they are giving natural henna a bad reputation. To know how bad black henna is, please google black henna scars and you will know what I am against.
4. What is your favorite thing about FSM?
My favorite thing about FSM is the audience, the vendors and the market managers. I love how all appreciate art and uniqueness. It’s a beautiful blend of awesome people, awesome things and we get to take some money home.
