I attended a workshop held by Seema to learn about henna. Her professionalism, passion, and of course, her beautiful art work impressed me very much! She made me feel as though I was welcomed into the henna art community and I found her teaching style inspiring as well. I would highly recommend learning from Seema, and look forward to growing my own practice now that I have met a tutor like her.
Seema holds a true talent and love for what she does. Having her design a piece to turn into a permanent tattoo was such a awesome experience. She has an ability to take your ideas and incorporate then into her pieces. I highly recommend Seema as the person to design your permanent Henna tattoo. She is AMAZING!!!
Clearly I went to the right place! Not only is Seema very knowledgeable about the art, but she’s very forthcoming about her product. And an incredible artist, I couldn’t be happier with my piece!!
Seema is not bound by traditional designs. I was inspired by her free form creativity. She is patient and honest and open to answering any questions you may have. She has collected a lot of knowledge on the subject! The small workshop group made it very personal. I can’t wait until our next workshop!!
Seema is a fantastic and caring artist. Her work is beautiful. She made looking at myself in the mirror bareable again with my Henna Crown. Thanks again!
What an amazing experience with Seema! I wanted to do a session with my mom and my daughter, as a bonding little ritual to welcome my other little baby girl. I booked for a henna belly and for them to come with me. Seema is so pleasant, her space so inviting and calming and the henna she uses is super high quality and has this amazing scent that just captivates you! I was also so happy to hear it was safe and totally organic and not harmful to me or baby!
We were all so amazed with how talented she is! I took her advice on a flowing design for my belly and it turned out beautifully! My goodness she does wonders, so many little details that go together to compose a most beautiful, unique, intricate design!
She gave me the right advice on how to guarantee a good stain and was very honest about how long it would last being that my skin was so stretched out. It stained beautifully and I love it SO much! My daughter and my mom’s stains are also beautiful and have gotten many many compliments.
Thanks again for the unforgettable experience and for sharing your talent Seema!
What an amazing and fun experience. Loved my baby belly henna. Was done so quickly and beautifully. Photoshoot was an huge success. Thank you so much Seema.
Such an amazing woman with such talent! She did a beautiful henna on my daughters hand. I recommend her highly!! Will definitely be going back and will plan my daughters bday party with henna!
Seema is amazing and joy to be around. The henna she used stayed on for so long and dyed my hand so dark. I am beyond impressed.
Besides having amazing artistic abilities. Seema is a warm and thoughtful teacher. Her class on henna was very well thought out. I am looking forward to more classes. xoxo

I got white henna done the day before my grad, and it turned out lovely! It got very redundant how many times I got asked who did it and where did I get it done, especially when I am so bad with orientations that “somewhere in Calgary” was as specific as I could get. We were initially worried that the white henna wouldn’t last over night, as I got it done on my shoulder, but I got nothing but awestruck admirers when the event came around! Thanks for making my day grad outfit extra special! I’d do it again!
Seema is one of the most amazing artists I have ever met…the joy of her craft shows in her work!! Thanks for the beautiful originals for me and my daughter!!
Seema is such a warm and welcoming person! I was hoping to reconnect with henna and improve upon my skills; Seema went above and beyond expectation! Superior knowledge and such a friendly and fun atmosphere – I’ll definitely be a returning client!
I took a beginners Henna class today with Seema. Her knowledge, enthusiasm, and passion for Henna were evident. I appreciate the information she shared and her encouragement for us to ask questions. Her handouts provided us with everything we needed to get started. My favorite part of the workshop was the practical, hands on application of the Henna. Whether you are intrigued/interested in learning Henna, or are looking for an exquisite Henna art design for yourself, I would highly recommend Seema at Carefully Crafted Henna.
My daughter and I thank you for doing such a fantastic job on our designs! It was her birthday and her first time sitting for a Henna session and you made it an unforgettable experience. Our Hennas have come out so beautifully and we did not hesitate, nor shy, in posting pictures of our designs on FB for our families in Alaska. Of course my daughter took several pictures at different angles, using different lighting, and in several different poses with her Henna. Your smile made us feel welcomed and at ease! You were accommodating and patient with us. You are fabulous and we are looking forward to her next birthday. Thank you again very much!
I spent the summer of 2015 with Seema as her student, and I must say it was truly a wonderful experience! I learned way more than I thought I would – from how to make henna to applying bridal designs, she taught me everything! I would definitely recommend her henna classes 110%. She’s extremely knowledgable on all aspects of henna and her sweet, lively personality keep the lessons fun at the same time. I feel like a pro now, and it’s all because of her!
Seema did a fantastic job. She was unable to make it to an earlier planned appointment (for good reason) but somehow agreed to come in on my wedding day, in the midst of all the chaos of getting ready and did some beautiful pieces on my bridesmaids. She recommended using some other kind of glitter henna that didn’t require any waiting time to dry. They got soo many compliments. Thank you so much for coming in last minute and bravely facing my barking dog.

I want to send a HUGE thank you out to Carefully Crafted Henna Designs for facilitating a two day workshop on ‘How to make your own Henna’. I left the course with all the skills, resources (and even some supplies) I needed to start making my own Henna cones. If you ever have the chance to take a class with Seema I highly recommend it. She is both professional and personal, offering one on one care even in a group setting. Thanks again and today I am #365grateful for all the henna happiness Seema provides her in Calgary!
Amazing experience having prenatal henna done. This was my one ‘indulgence’ of pregnancy and I cannot speak highly enough of Seema. Her professionalism and gentle nature was appreciated, her creativity was awe-inspiring, and the pure joy she took in seeing her final product made the experience even more memorable. I have always gravitated towards Eastern traditions and wanted to have my belly made a henna masterpiece as a way of honouring our hard-won pregnancy. Seema created just that, a masterpiece and an beautiful honouring. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for an incredible afternoon.
Thank you Seema for my very first Henna design, I loved it and so did all my friends, family and coworkers. Seema was very pleasant, professional and very passionate about her art. It was a pleasure to chat with her. Will definitely do this again already thinking summer time henna!
I hired Seema for my 26th birthday a few weeks ago to do some henna tattoos for me and my girlfriends. She was extremely professional, easy to talk too, and incredibly talented. All the girls loved their tattoos (each one unique in their own way), and it was such a fun experience. I got so many compliments on my tattoo, and we all agree that it’s something we would do again. Her pricing is great (there is a travel charge if you live in the South, but totally worth it), and completely affordable.
Thanks Seema for an awesome evening!
Hi Seema, I have never had so many compliments on the henna you did for me. I went to Chinook to grab a few things the night before I left and ended up giving out all 5 of your business cards. Then on my way to LA I stopped counting the number of people complimenting me on “the nicest henna they have ever seen” with a few ladies recognizing it as bridal henna. And once I got to the concert people were wanting to get it done there but I told them they had to come to Calgary 😉
Anyways, just wanted to let you know and thank you again. Your work is beautiful!
Seema’s work is just spectacular! She has such an amazing variety of designs which she seems to just freehand so effortlessly! I’ve been getting my henna done from her for the past 4 years now and I have no doubt in saying that she’s the best in Calgary for what she does. She treats her client like a healer and always has something interesting to talk about, leaving them smiling about it for a week or two! You’re awesome Seema!! I’ll be booking my next session very soon! ;P
Seema’s a gem of an artist in Calgary. She has all the right skills and knowledge on the art form and has so much passion for her art work. We’ve invited her a few times to our parties and she always inspires us with her magic of henna.
Seema, Jessica’s henna looks GORGEOUS today!!! Thank you so much for making her day! You are definitely going to be our go-to henna artist in the future. So glad to have found you! 🙂
