Henna tattoos are a big thing, especially in Indian and Middle Eastern cultures. We love having them for big special occasions such as weddings and birthdays.
The best part about hennas is that they are not permanent, so we also love getting them if we want to try a tattoo idea out for a couple of weeks.
To find out which ones are truly amazing, we went and asked around the area to give you Dubai’s best tattoo studios for henna.
How much does it cost to get a henna tattoo in Dubai?
The cost of a henna tattoo will usually depend on the size, complexity, and where you’re going to put it. Using custom stencils may also increase the overall costs, especially for a time-consuming design.
Henna tattoos, specifically the intricate ones that are commonly found on women on their wedding days and birthdays, usually cost around AED100 to AED500.
How We Picked Dubai’s Best Tattoo Studios for Henna
Before we get right into our list of Dubai’s best tattoo studios for henna, here are the factors we considered for our entries on this list:
1. Dubai Henna by Sara
|SERVICES||Henna tattooing, henna classes|
|ADDRESS||Concorde Tower - Cluster G - Jumeirah Lake Towers - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 56 51 5 9111|
|OPERATING HOURS||Every day: 8 AM–8 PM|
|Customer Service||★★★★★ (5/5)|
With 15 years of experience and countless media features for being known as one of the best henna studios in the city, Dubai Henna by Sara does all kinds of henna tattoos that are perfect for any occasion.
The studio is in perfect condition. Our tattoo artists did their sanitation on the equipment in front of us, and even to the untrained eye, we could tell that their tools were in near-perfect condition.
However, since it does offer henna tattooing home services, the quality of its cleanliness goes down depending on where the clients live.
When it comes to service, the staff is nothing but professional. Punctual and always ready for every session, its artists and receptionists are efficient every time we book our session here.
On top of that, its artists are trained by fellow in-house artists, passing on each other’s knowledge and skills to each other.
We love that because of this, its artists are capable of accommodating all kinds of requests and styles for henna tattoos
When it comes to accessibility, its only location that is located in Jumeirah near The Palm is central enough for convenience.
On top of that, its home service makes the lack of multiple locations in the city quite easy to avail its services to.
- Artists have more than a decade’s worth of experience
- Artists are versatile and accommodating of many kinds of designs
- Offers home service
- Home service significantly lowers the sanitariness of the tattoo session
- Only has one location
The Henna experience was seamless
“The Henna experience was seamless. I had a group of friends with me staying at a hotel and the artist that serviced us was very nice and accommodating. All 4 of us loved our henna! Fully Recommend! You won’t be disappointed.”— Keiah V, Google Reviews
I would recommend them to anyone interested in Henna services in Dubai
“This was my 1st Henna experience. Not only was Safa (Henna Artist) professional, but she was creative, quick, and friendly. She performed the services at my hotel, which saved me a trip. You will not be disappointed with Dubai Henna, as I would recommend them to anyone interested in Henna services in Dubai! Thank you, Safa and Dubai Henna!! See you on my next trip!!” —Myra Harris, Google Reviews
2. Henna Art by Sadia Amjid
|ADDRESS||Marina Diamond 4 - Al Marsa St - Dubai Marina - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|OPERATING HOURS||Open 24/7|
|Customer Service||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
Offering home-service henna tattooing all over the UAE, Henna Art by Sadia Amjid offers an array of styles perfect for all kinds of occasions, especially for weddings, festivals, photo shoots, and dewali.
It is hard to gauge the quality of its facilities since it only ever does home service tattoo sessions. While its tools for henna are of excellent quality, the cleanliness of its studio is entirely dependent on where the session is happening.
On top of that, henna staining is more likely to happen especially if we are not careful.
The customer service was excellent. Sadia was punctual and efficient and was quite professional throughout the entire session.
She maintained her friendly demeanor the entire time, and she happily accommodated all of our requests as we were working on the piece before the session.
However, Sadia is just one person and it was quite difficult for us to find a schedule that worked for us especially since we wanted a henna from her for an event.
But when we finally managed to book her, we were amazed at how versatile she was with her craft. She seamlessly incorporated our design requests into traditional henna art styles with no problem.
The design from Sadia is Beautiful
“The design from Sadia is Beautiful 😍 I started communication with her on the same day as I got the henna tattoo from her. The communication was very fast and absolutely not complicated. She also made my mom a tattoo for free because it was our last day in Dubai. I absolutely recommend Sadia! …” – Melina Rech, Google Reviews
Sadia is incredible!
“Sadia is incredible!
I booked for some henna whilst visiting Dubai and she came directly to my hotel and made me feel super comfortable and involved in the process.
She was kind and lovely to spend time with whilst creating a beautiful design for me.
I couldn’t recommend her highly enough, if you need henna at your own convenience whether you are just visiting or want someone to come to your home I suggest booking with Sadia!” -Sharee Watson, Google Reviews
3. Henna by Nishi
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 800 7866|
|OPERATING HOURS||Every day: 8 am - 11:30 pm|
|Customer Service||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
Made up of licensed and certified Mehndi designers, Henna by Nishi always guarantees customized and innovative henna designs that you can get in the comfort of your own home.
However, its facilities are limited to the tools that its artists bring with them during their henna tattoo sessions.
So while we appreciate the quality of its paste, which is one hundred percent organic, the cleanliness of the surroundings during the tattoo is still totally dependent on the space of the client.
Thankfully, our tattoo session was quite smooth because of our artists. They were punctual and accommodating right from the design phase up to the tattooing part of the process.
However, it was relatively hard for us to book our appointment because while it may have multiple artists, they are not enough to accommodate everyone.
It is made up by the fact that its artists are really amazing at their jobs. The designs are always completely unique, and while we can see the similarity in style, the overall output is never the same.
It is even made better by the fact that Henna by Nishi services the entire country with its home service. We just wish it had an actual physical studio.
“Amazing service – home service very smooth and the henna designs so lovely! Very well done and the jagua color is simply great! Well done as it’s homemade! My girls are also in love with their henna – thank you so much! For sure you will have to come again!!” – Julia Daniel, Google Reviews
“Amazing work! Super impressed and satisfied by Nishi’s services. Amazingly beautiful henna designs. I wish her all the success. ❤️” -Aanchal Kohli, Google Reviews
4. Rachna Salon
|SERVICES||Henna tattooing, waxing, bleaching, mani-pedi, eyebrow threading, hair treatments, facial treatments, oil massaging|
|ADDRESS||Umm Suqeim 1, Jumeirah Beach Road, Next to Petrol Station, Villa No.601, Jumeira, Dubai
Has 2 more locations throughout the city
|CONTACT DETAILS||04 394 4489|
|OPERATING HOURS||Every day: 10 am - 9 pm|
|Customer Service||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
A pioneer in Arabic henna design in the UAE, Rachna Salon has more than 35 years of experience that is steeped in tradition and creativity.
We love how it offers the full spectrum of personal care and beauty through its facilities not just for henna tattooing, but also for its salon services.
Because of this, Rachna is our immediate choice when we need a full-on makeover finished with a henna tattoo session. It is perfect for important life events such as weddings and birthdays.
We also liked the service that we got from the staff. The receptionist was easy to communicate with, and with a handful of artists always on duty, it was not hard to get a booking.
However, because of its longevity in the industry, Rachna Salon’s henna rates are almost doubly more expensive than the others. To make things more troublesome, the prices go up or down depending on the branch.
On top of that, since it has a lot of artists employed in its many branches, not all of them are as great as the others. We have had artists who had a hard time executing the designs we wanted.
Despite that, with 3 branches in the city, and 12 more spread throughout the country, Rachna Salon’s accessibility to its studios is unrivaled.
Great experience here, friendly staff
“Great experience here, friendly staff. They were all very helpful and friendly. I got my nose pierced and my henna done both feet and hands. It all cost me about 300 dirhams. I’d say rather affordable” – Awa Khouma, Google Reviews
“Fabulous service. I got mehendi done on my hands today. The girls were very kind, patient, and skilled. The intricate design on my hand looked fabulous. Thank you very much. Happy to have found you” – Abhilasha Mahant, Google Reviews
5. Zah Beauty (AlMarasim Ladies Salon)
|SERVICES||Henna tattooing, hair treatments, mani-pedi, facial treatments|
|ADDRESS||Al Marasim Ladies Salon Post Box 37300 - Villa, 1043 - Al Wasl Rd - Al Manara - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 50 186 6286|
|OPERATING HOURS||Every day: 11 am - 10 pm|
|Customer Service||★★★★★ (5/5)|
With 20 years of experience and presence in the henna industry, AlMarasim Ladies Salon, also known as Zah Beauty, is known for its traditional designs.
With a fully-equipped salon that offers body therapy, hair treatments, mani-pedis, and facial treatments on top of henna tattoo services, this salon provides a complete experience for those getting ready for a special day.
We also love its trendy and chic salon space that makes our henna sessions here all the more a relaxing experience.
On top of that, we love that the henna paste all of its artists use is one hundred percent organic, which means there are no chemicals that could cause a harmful reaction on your skin.
The service was quite excellent, as well. Everyone in the salon was so friendly that we ended up enjoying their company while we were getting our hennas done.
However, while we appreciate the salon’s choice to focus on traditional designs for its hennas, we think that because of this, the artists are not as versatile when it comes to accommodating design requests.
We still appreciate the fact that it has multiple branches throughout the city. The locations are strategically placed around areas where events are usually held.
However, we wish that they would offer home services, as well.
I have to give all of the staff 100
“I have to give all of the staff 100 🌟 full of kindness and amazing services with (Zah staff). I did my nails with Noora and Birna, and Massage 💆♀️ with Sabrina. My eyebrows with Priya and Henna were designed by the artist Supriya ♥️
Best Team ever and Best services, I feel it’s like home with girls. Special thanks to the head of the team my dear Jerry.” – Fatma Almarri, Google Reviews
Super friendly and great staff
“Super friendly and great staff
I did wash and quick blowdry with Mirvat. She is a great, super fast, and a professional hairdresser
The whole vibe of the beauty salon is great
Very spacious area
Cash and card are acceptable” – Rana Oklah, Google Reviews
