“The art of henna has been a passion for me since I was very young. As a little girl growing up in India, I had also seen henna being done tons of times – be it on festivals, weddings, parties or just for fun. I started doodling with a henna cone, when I was only around 13 years old. My mother was my first Henna teacher & since then I took every  opportunity  to learn this body art, from various Henna professionals. As I grew older, I received calls from more people (through word-of-mouth) and I realized that I should make my hobby into a part-time business. I never really thought I’d be doing this professionally, but now I am and I absolutely love it!” - Priyanka Walunjkar.
