My name is Jessica Ullestad (hence the "JU" in JU Henna Tattoo). 

Here's some quick facts about me:

  • I tried out henna by giving myself a tattoo in 2006 and fell in love! I've regularly practiced henna on myself and loved ones ever since.
     
  • With the encouragement of my friends and family, I made my henna-hobby an official side-business in 2015.
     
  • I currently work full-time doing graphic design and marketing communications. My full-time job uses my creative talents in a whole other way, that I also enjoy! 
     
  • I have always loved art and creating things with my hands.  I went to school for Art Education and still like to draw, paint and create Ukranian Pysanky eggs.
     
  • If you've seen me at festivals, you might see other people helping at my booth. I am very lucky to have my boyfriend and parents' help with booth setup, answering henna questions and fulfilling transactions!
     
  • You may notice that I have quite a few cat-inspired henna designs. I greatly enjoy the company of both cats and dogs and even do a little bit of volunteering at Fishtown's PSPCA. If I do a home appointment for you and you have a fuzzy friend, I am happy to meet them!
     
  • If you want to know anything else, don't be afraid to ask! I love chatting during henna appointments and events.
