River Dawn

river Dawn

River started out her career as a Henna artist and owner of Henna Sophia, a prominent henna business in Asheville. Through her love of delicate line work and artwork that is inspiring to the wearer, she has found her way to tattooing. River can do all sorts of styles of tattooing but prefers doing permanent henna style work and pieces that are mandala like with lots of delicate line work. She also loves sacred geometry and symbolism and would love to create something not only beautiful but empowering for you.
