Jody (Beachcombers) Rogers – Orlando Henna Artist
I’m Jody, your henna artist. As a professional henna artist and instructor, I have been studying and practicing henna since 1999. That’s longer than many of my clients have been alive! When did that happen?
My Pakistani mother-in-law and sister-in-law introduced me to mehndi way back then, and it was love at first sight.
Henna is the perfect combination of art, history, and science. Everything my nerdy heart loves!
Back in the 20th century (HA!), the information I got about henna was often incorrect or based on old-wives-tales, lol! The internet was not what it is today. Let me tell you, it was a journey: a long winding journey. Luckily, since then there have been a great number of scientific and historical resources on henna to study.
I have a wealth of personal experience beyond book-learning, having studied and taught alongside henna artists from many cultures/countries including; India, Pakistan, Egypt, Russia, Iran, Isreal, Ukraine, and America. As a result, I can share a unique henna experience. Henna is truly an international experience, with room for everyone to participate.
My heritage is German and Welsh, and I was raised in the midwest, USA. I currently live in Orlando, Florida, where I run Beachcombers Henna Supply & Studio along with my partner, Asad. Ironically, Asad of Pakistani descent doesn’t do henna at all!
I look forward to sharing this art that I love so much with you.

All the pictures on this site are of my actual work, so you can be confident of the quality of henna you will receive. I personally mix the henna paste that I’ll be using on you.
