100 Bare-It-All Body Paintings

From Liquid Bikinis to Soccerific Skin Art

— October 26, 2012 — Pop Culture
For years now people have been using the human figure as a canvas, as proven by these various examples of people using their bare skin to help create realistic and unusual works of art .

It is part of the childhood experience to have your face painted at a carnival or festival. Nowadays, those same carnival artists have developed their craft and can now create face paintings and body paintings that trick the eye into thinking that what they are viewing is real. Sports Illustrated has even made it a recurring part of their content to cover their beautiful models in body paint that resembles swimsuits.

Body painting has also been used to create anything from illusive optical illusions, advertising for major products, publicity stunts or just used to freak people out completely. How much would you be willing to bare for a body painting?
