Meet the Maker
Touch of Henna Hawai`i is a small local mobile business created by Patricia Hu in 2015. She currently serves the Honolulu town region, sharing her beautiful and natural henna body art adornments with the local community. Patricia proudly makes her own natural and organic henna paste using her own materials to ensure the safety of her clients without needing to sacrifice the beauty and visual aesthetics of the art.
Patricia was born and raised in Honolulu. A graduate of Kaimukī High School and the University of Hawaii at Mānoa, she started doing henna in 2014 after meeting and getting henna for her birthday from Darcy of Henna Lounge while visiting San Francisco. Before that, Patricia already had demonstrated a growing interest in the beauty and history of henna. Largely self-taught by nature, Patricia cites multiple henna artists from the U.S. and internationally as her sources of inspiration and ongoing learning. She continues to improve and refine her skills in henna through consistent practice and attending conferences, her most recent having been HennaCon hosted by Henna Caravan in 2016.
In addition to doing freelance henna art, Patricia is also a dedicated belly dancer and burgeoning Chinese medical practitioner.
