The 2010 World Bodypainting Festival was held in Austria in July. Artists from around the world participated and transformed models’ skin into works of art using paint. Some called the festival "the most colorful event on the planet." It would be difficult to disagree.

‘Body Circus,' a fantasy ball in a medieval castle is one of the most popular events at the World Bodypainting Festival. Several hundred people dressed in costumes and paint for the ball and provided a visual feast for onlookers.
