Body art: painting

17 11 2008

Body painting is considered between the more beautiful forms of art. Differently from other body art forms like tattoing, branding or piercing, body painting is temporary. It consists in painting the body or part of it using naturals pigments such as hennè or acrilichs. The duration may change according to the used pigments. For instance if you used hennè, it could last 1 or 2 weeks, while using other colours like tempera it could last only few hours. During the centuries body painting has been often used with tattooing or body modifications for the most various pourposes: ceremonies, aestethics, sexuals and so on. It is a way of masking and transforming you into something different, a different way to have fun and confront.
