Melissa Addams is a Cuban-American artist who was born into the deep mysticism and traditions of her culture. The art of divination, throwing seashells, Tarot, and other various esoteric skills were gifted to her through her Grandmother, at a very early age. When Melissa discovered the art of Henna from a classmate who had Mehndi on her hands and feet from her trip to India ~ she was smitten! Drawn to the intricate patterns and mysticism therein, she set her goal to learn and master this beautiful art. She was just 13 years old, then, when first beginning to experiment with recipes and designs; and from that point, it has flourished into her passion. In 2010 Melissa was introduced to a dye called Jagua and soon after began the same passionate voyage of learning the art and has since become an Official Representative for Fresh Jagua, helping them to revolutionize the body art World. Melissa's combination of deep roots in magic and mysticism and her passion as an artist are what noticeably define her aesthetic and artistry. Certain artists covet a unique ability to tap into our collective desires and help us confirm and manifest our truth ~ Melissa is just such an artist!
