Your local library specialist probably can point you to references
for lawyers or small claims court.
Before doing that, however, have you contacted the "artist"? Perhaps
s/he doesn't ever see the effects of the work. I think they should
have a chance to make amends before you resort to legal action. If
you do contact them, act in good faith - it's okay to let them know
you're hurt/angry/whatever, but stay calm in any actual interaction,
so they *can* try to come to an agreement with you. Don't threaten
legal action until you've exhausted other possibilities - it's
expensive and messy, and not necessarily satisfying. (If they're
uncooperative, there are things like reporting to your local board of
health, newspapers or TV, etc. Although, if you do go to TV, it would
be kind to the real henna artists to get a safe henna design for
Keep documentation, though, and did you sign any release? Did you pay
cash, or something that can be documented?
