Body painting is one the most fascinating art forms in the world. People love it and they are naturally drawn to it. Human bodies covered in paint intrigue us and catch our eyes. Yet there are many things people don't know about body paint. So here are 10 things I think you should know about this fantastic living art!
Who is body painting suitable for? What can you do with it? Can YOU book a body painting for something?
These are the questions I get asked a lot. So here's an answer (and a video!) to you, if you are interested in body painting for yourself or maybe for your friend or loved one!
The most common question people ask me when they hear I´m a body painter, is what body painting is used for. It´s art most people have seen in some form somewhere, but it seems a little vague a concept why and what it is created for. Are you wondering about that too?
My clientele is very mixed and I offer services for both private clients and businesses. Maybe you wouldn´t believe it, but Body painting is actually suitable for so many different things and different people. I wouldn´t like to categorise anyone, but I tried to divide my clients into rough segments.
So here are 6 customer groups who body painting is excellent for.
What a fun project was it to create these super cute cats for Uusi Päivä TV-series on YLE! The daily TV show featured a music video made by the characters and these kitties were playing in it. I was in charge of the face painting designs and created the looks with my collegue and our assistants. Super fun two days of filming - check out the music video below this post to see why! :D
Let's imagine there was a company specializing in vegetable food products and they wanted to promote them. How would they advertise something as generic as vegetables?
Well first they could come up with a good slogan. something that encourages people to eat more veggies. It could be something like "More vegetables one day a week means 52 better days in a year." That's very good.
But how would they make their ad stand out from the crowds of tomatoes, salads and peppers that are the seen in vegetable commercials? They know good copy isn't enough. So what do they do to catch people's attention visually?

There is something magical about being pregnant and many mums-to-be want to document that transitory time somehow. Very popular ways to do that are eg. having professional photos taken of you or doing a belly cast of your pregnant form.
But I think the sweetest way to capture the beauty of pregnancy is Belly painting. It has become very popular around the world and it's no wonder - can you think of any other as creative and fun a way to celebrate your bump than have it become a piece of art!
