Natalia Stahl's 'Chinese Mood' is an example of beautiful body painting that transcends time. Stahl has painted her model with traditional China cultural symbols, like Chinese characters and gorgeous sprawling vines and flowers, and outfitted her in gloves and a cap that would look right at home during the Roaring Twenties.

We've seen a number of body painting collections that tell a story and, in doing so, often travel through time. Check out some of my favorite features below.
