temperedravenTempered Raven

We at Tempered Raven believe a custom blade is more than a pretty display piece – it is a tool. Each piece we craft, regardless if hand-crafted or hand-forged, serves a purpose for its owner and much like any other tool, whether practical or ceremonial, it should be reliable and long lasting; an heirloom passed from one generation to the next. This is why we pour our sweat and tears (and sometimes blood) into each blade until they are hardened and tempered for use and abuse. Just because our blades are tools, doesn’t mean they should not look beautiful, which is why we focus our attention on details like handle material, pins, stippling, or the trueness of each blade. Only by remaining dedicated to the purpose of each piece do we remain true to our craft.

I offer custom, freehand henna body art using all-natural henna paste, glitter tattoos, and body painting. For the Masquerade Ball, I’ll be doing henna for the ball on THURSDAY, January 17, at Dublin Roasters Coffee. (Please use the booking link at to schedule your appointment. Glitter tattoos that last 3-5 days are also available; please specify in the notes section when you book.) Those who get henna on Thursday will have a henna stain for the ball. During the ball itself, I will be offering body paint.
