Body Painting


Most associate body painting to that of painting over a nude body, an very erotic form of makeup application as shown by Doris’ lingerie and leopard man body painting. However, body painting goes a lot further. Many makeup artists work professionally as body painters and their work is seen regularly in television commercials, such as the Natrel Plus campaign featuring models camouflaged as trees. Body painters also work frequently in the film arena especially in science fiction with more and more elaborate alien creations being body painted. Stills advertising also used body painting with hundreds of body painting looks on the pages of the world’s glossy magazines every year as Doris did with Next Magazine.

The photos are done by photographers, Lance Chang, Dennis Covey, Tony Di Zinno and Chris Wimpey. Model Mariah Nelson was cat women and Miki modeled for the Chinese mandarin collar top.
