Why do I need Henna Artist Insurance?

Henna art is among the most beautiful artwork in the world, both in the painting and tattoo mediums. Not only does it capture the ornate styles of centuries of tradition (using skin as a canvas), but it does so without any pain or permeance. With such gorgeous creations on the body made with the soothing strokes of a piping bag, it seems odd that there could be any risk in the job.

However, with any craft involving human contact and cosmetics/dyes, the artist should be wary of the risks. As a henna tattoo artist, you may find yourself in a position where your beautiful art has turned sour due to a client’s previously unknown allergy to dye. This could result in a claim for bodily injury, endangering your business.

Or, you could be taking an appointment at your client’s house and accidentally break an expensive vase, or spill henna on their couch. For these reasons and more, you would need a general liability insurance policy to cover third-party property damage.

Say you’ve recently finished a henna piece on a bride prior to them heading to the venue. Once there, a friend fits them with an immaculate white designer dress. Unfortunately, the ink bleeds onto the bridal dress, ruining it for the wedding. The bride blames you for the property damage from the henna stain.

Thimble’s Henna Artist Insurance could help protect you from the above situations. With all the magic of lovely henna art, claims like these can be horrifying. With Thimble, however, you can keep your henna business in the right place, safeguarding your business with our convenient and flexible Henna Artist Insurance policy.

What does Henna Artist Insurance cover?

What is covered under the Henna Artist Liability Insurance policy?


Third-party, non-employee bodily injury

You are applying henna for a big party and forget to ask one of your many “canvases” if they have an allergy or not. Moments later, they begin to have an allergic reaction and require immediate medical attention. They then expect you to pay for their ER visit.

Third-party property damage

When applying henna at a client’s home, you accidentally spill some dye onto their little Pomeranian. The dog shakes itself right on top of your client’s expensive wool rug. Now, being that you were the one to spill the dye initially, they want you to pay for cleaning the henna stain on the carpet.


Defense costs

At a birthday party, you are the belle of the ball. Yet, after receiving a henna piece, one child runs through poison ivy and has a horrible reaction. Their parents mistakenly believe it’s the products you used and blame you, ultimately filing a lawsuit for bodily injury. Now you have to hire your own representation.
