Body Art & Face Painting
Body painting is a form of body art, considered by some as the most ancient form of art.
Unlike tattoo and other forms of body art, body painting is temporary, painted onto the human skin, and lasts for only several hours, or at most (in the case of Mehndi or “henna tattoo”) a couple of weeks.
We offer different forms of body and face painting such as painted performers, face painting, henna tattoos and more.
Our artists work professionally as body painters across the world. Their work is seen regularly in television commercials. Body painting is not always large pieces on fully nude bodies but can involve smaller pieces on displayed areas of otherwise clothed bodies.
There are special water-based cosmetic “paints” made for face painting; people should ask before having face paints applied what products are being used.
There are many kinds of face paint, including:
- Designs that include the emblems of favourite sports teams, Cartoon characters, and other designs that are “cute” or otherwise appealing to the young.
- Dramatic designs that appeal to all ages.
- Costuming designs which transform the wearer into someone/something completely different, such as Jack Haley’s silver face makeup as the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz.
