Many individuals cherish their memories of going to the circus and having their faces painted, but none quite like these body paintings. This unusual emerging art form puts all of the cat and superhero face paintings from childhood to shame.

Artists have seriously stepped up their creativity with these awe-inspiring body paintings. Granted, some of these body paintings will only appeal to a certain group of people. However, many of the other body paintings featured are mesmerizing masterpieces, like patriotic body paintings or backlight body paintings.

For those brave souls who are willing to literally bare all for the art of body paintings, I'm sure many appreciate your efforts in creating wondrous works of art for all to enjoy.
