Trina Merry is an amazing body painting artist who has recently worked on a shoot that involved a human motorcycle made from the painted bodies of various yoga masters. This behind the scenes video shows just how this effect was accomplished over the course of three days.

The concept for the photo shoot was to recreate three separate motorcycles to put on display at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show. The three bikes were a sport bike, a dirt bike and a cruiser. Trina Merry was asked to paint the bodies of a few talented yoga gurus who would later form the shapes of these three motorcycles.

The main model for each of the three bikes was Progressive’s spokesperson Erin Bates. Stats for Bodacious Body Paintings Trending: Older & Buzzing
