Everything About Tattoos r/tattoo – reddit

If your question is answered by this FAQ, your post will be removed.

(One of my artists told me about doing a sea horse on a woman’s lower stomach. She later got pregnant and it turned into a sea monster. After she gave birth it looked like a deflated snork.)

(Note: the following aftercare instructions are based on my own knowledge. At the time of writing this I have somewhere around 70 hours worth of tattoos from around a dozen different artists. These aftercare instructions are what they all recommended and they have never failed me. Your artist/friend/relative/lawyer/doctor/priest may tell you to do something different, follow whatever advice you want, /r/tattoo takes no responsibility.)

If your artist has given you aftercare instructions, follow those. They are the ones that put the ink in your skin and they are the ones that (probably) agreed to a free touch-up if necessary, but if you have healing issues and tell them that you followed aftercare instructions from the internet instead of their advice (although their advice probably agrees with this) they might not do the touch-up for free.

See below for instructions on aftercare using Saniderm/Tegaderm/Tatuderm.

(Thanks to /u/jkugelman for contributing to the Saniderm section of the FAQ.)

I’ve found that with my tattoos there’s always a comedown period right after I get them.

Leading up to the tattoo you’ve got the excitement of getting a new piece, the adrenaline build up, the nervousness, and all that. When you get to your appointment you’re eager to get started and once you do start getting the tattoo there’s another adrenaline rush along with the endorphins. It all feels great, but it won’t last much past the end of the appointment.

At that point it all wears off. The adrenaline is gone, the endorphin rush stops, the excitement is over, you’re in a very real, physiological comedown and since you’ve been on a building high for a while that can feel like a pretty hard crash.

So all the physical stuff is happening and then you add on the mental stuff. You just made a big change and commitment, you just drastically altered yourself, you’re hyper aware of the new addition to your body and you’re examining every detail of it. You’re disappointed that people aren’t really understanding that you’ve done something big, they don’t seem to care enough about the new tattoo. You question the design choice, the placement, the artist’s skill. You notice errors, you realize what you should have done, you get a sinking feeling that you’ve made a big mistake and, oh god, is this healing correctly?

It’s all perfectly normal and it’ll be ok.

The first thing to do is relax. Quit obsessing over the tattoo, quit staring at it, quit worrying about every little detail. You can’t change anything about it right now so there’s no point in freaking out. The only thing you need to do is properly take care of it so it heals quickly and well.

Once it’s healed and your body chemistry and emotions have returned to normal you’ll be much better able to objectively examine it. That’s when you can decide if it needs a touch up, if there are correctable mistakes, if there’s anything you want to talk to the artist about fixing. And while corrections and touch ups are often possible, you should also remember that it’s a piece of art on your body; art is never perfect and nobody’s body is either, and that’s ok.

Chances are by the time it’s all healed you’ll feel perfectly happy with it.

If you really don’t like this feeling and want to avoid the comedown in the future there are a couple things to do.

First is design selection; make sure that the design is REALLY what you want. Hang the design next to your mirror so you see it every day. Leave it there for 6 months, a year, two years, however long it takes you to decide that yes, you really do want it on you forever. It will be on you forever so taking your time to be sure is perfectly fine; there’s no need to rush.

Next is artist selection. Take your time picking an artist. Make sure you find someone whose art style works with your concept. Examine their portfolio carefully (check this section for how to examine a portfolio). Look up reviews on them. Meet them face to face and discuss the idea. See how you feel about them; did it seem like you guys clicked? Did they seem interested and engaged in the idea of doing your tattoo? Did they make you feel confident?

And finally, on the day of your tattoo, make sure that you don’t let the excitement control you. Really look at the design again, examine it for errors, don’t be shy to ask for changes. Once the stencil is on you don’t rush, really check it again, make sure you like the placement. Go look in a mirror and move around a bit, stand naturally, check it from various angles, make sure.

If you do all that then even if you do get the comedown again you can still be sure that you got what you wanted where you wanted from an artist you are confident with.

Tower Tattoo Parlor – 35 Photos & 39 Reviews – Tattoo …


Me and my brother came in with asa to get a tattoo done. I was recommended to get a tattoo done by him after seeing his work on Instagram and he has amazing work. I got a small tattoo and it came out perfect. He has a light hand and didn’t hurt at all. Took about 35 mins. Asa is a really awesome dude. If you are lookin to get a small tattoo I recommend you coming in with asa. He does an amazing job and he’s super nice! Thank you asa for our tattoos! Def will be coming back for another one! 🙂

Amazing staff and place., Got there with no previous appointment and they were able to do my tattoo right there and there the price was fair and the quality even better, Connor is a really nice guy and a cool dude to talk while you are getting inked! Defently coming back here ! You guys rock

Best tattoo parlor in San Diego.Great service and attention to detail. I’ve gotten most of my work done in this parlor and I can tell you by experience there is no better tattoo shop. Thank you Dewayne and the rest of the staff at Tower Tattoo Parlor, see you guys again soon!

I was recommended this place by a girlfriend who had recently gotten a tattoo done. So excited this place was my first experience with getting a tattoo. I’ve been wanting one forever and have too afraid to commit and these guys made the process so fun that I’d do it again! Super super friendly staff!! Got my first tattoo done by Asa Crow and I LOVE it. The whole experience was wonderful from beginning to end. All the guys in there are very down to earth and approachable, Asa explained the whole process and worked with me to create exactly what I wanted. The prices are super reasonable and the professionalism is spot on. It’s located above the tower bar in City Heights and it’s freakin awesome. Such a fun spot to check out!! Will definitely go back!

Excellent customer service in a great atmosphere. Tattooed by both Dewayne and Connor, and couldn’t be more stoked on the work they both did. Extremely professional and friendly. Thanks guys!

Got me in last minute. Quoted me $600-$700 depending on detail. Prior to the artwork, they said they can do it for $500. That’s good business.

I highly recommend this establishment. Just had a piece done by Conner “Scooter” and the whole experience was awesome. He’s got a nice easy hand and did amazing line work for an American traditional pin-up. I can’t stop looking at it and everyone has been asking where I got it. I can’t recommend this place enough, it’s not a cookie cutter tattoo factory, the place has the ambiance of an old school tattoo parlor with great music and conversation the whole time.

Today was my first time coming here loved my tatt. I didn’t ask the guys name but he was good. (The one with the long beard)appreciated the fix he did to a jacked up tattoo a so called tattoo artised did at ink pusher(steve Martinez ) (wackk) thanks, going back soon!!

I have been getting tattooed by Asa Lee crow for years now and he is such a great guy and awesome tattoo artist. He has always been understanding, fast, but a great artist. Everyone who works here is super nice and they always play good tunes and share good laughs. They won’t dick you around.

Awesome place! Got my tattoo done by “scooter” Conner and it was min but squeezed me in between his appointments. Great prices for San Diego area.

Love this funky establishment. Can’t miss it, that’s for sure. Some friends and I came here to get tattoos, and I couldn’t be any more satisfied with the experience. I got a tattoo of a Torrey Pine tree on my bicep, very small space for such a detailed tattoo, but Asa Crow killed it. He’s seriously the man. I was concerned that we may have to tweak the sketch a couple times to get it how I wanted, but it’s like he read my mind. It was perfect on the first go! My little tree tat is so awesome; people are always commenting on the insane amount of detail that he got into it. Thank you Asa, I couldn’t be more happy with the result. The other tattoo artist that was there, Scooter, is a real cool guy as well and did a really good job on my friends’ tattoos. The tattoo shop itself is very small, but very clean. The process was smooth and simple. Oh, and there’s a cool little bar downstairs, too. Super bonus! I have already recommended Asa Crow as well as Tower Tattoo to my friends, and will continue to do so.

This shop is awesome. Conner, one of the artists, did my friend’s first tattoo and he was fantastic. Clean lines and a really pleasant attitude. The shop is clean and super welcoming. Would definitely come here again.

Late review but timely in the hope that I can track down the artist responsible for my favorite work and get it expanded and refreshed. I was in twice in early 2006 and was extremely happy on all counts despite the sketchy neighborhood. Got a small single orange lily on my right shoulder turned into a cluster of fuschia tropical flowers with foliage the first time, then returned to get a palmetto on my left thigh reworked/finished/colored after an aborted work at a to-remain-nameless PB place.Now I just want to get more–would like to expand the shoulder cluster to bring in more foliage/florals and a hummingbird if it’s not too gaudy. Will see if I can find the original artist or get another Tower pro to help me out!

Love, love, love this place! My boyfriend and I got some work done by Steve and he is fantastic! Very kind and as gentle as a tattoo artist can be. I got a large tattoo I designed on my lower back and my boyfriend got a scorpion on his shoulder/collarbone. He kept asking us if we were okay, if we needed a break, he was very kind. I will definitely be going back to him for more.

About 5 years ago a few of my girlfriends wanted to plan a group tattoo outting. It was to be my first ever and Iwas a bit nervous. We asked a big time TV tattoo guy who he would reccomend in San Diego and without hesitation he said Dewayne at Tower Tattoo so we set it up. I brought in my very simple idea for an ankle wrap piece and Dewayne came back a few minutes later with a beautiful piece… better than I even imagined. While working he asked if he could add a little more and some color…though nervous I totally trusted him and said go for it…the end result was perfect. To this day I continue to get compliments on his work…all the lines are still crisp and clear. I couldn’t be happier… Planning my second piece now and was looking up reviews to try and decide where to go… nothing but positives about these guys and their shop…I will for sure be going back very soon!!

Go see Pat Bieck, the sweet ginger prodigy, before word gets out & he’s all booked up. Fantastic. Shop is clean, artists friendly & professional. Getting tattooed on the 2nd floor of a historic building overlooking University? Awesome. Experiencing pain following your appointment? Just head downstairs for a drink.

While I do agree with Danielle W, that this is the best place to get ink… bar none, I actually have to take the last part back, because there is a bar downstairs. I’m kidding… but seriously…. there is a bar. The first time I got work done by Adam was maybe 8 years ago or so when he was down in IB. I, of course, have had work done elsewhere before and after, no regrets, no complaints, but I always end up coming back to him for more. Not that I have ever been unhappy with any of the other work I have, its just that nothing has ever been comparable to what he’s done. To take a patch work quilt of thoughts and ideas and then turn it around into something tangible is one thing. To do that, but with the style, attention to detail, and expertise he possesses, is f*n amazing. Having never had work done by Dewayne, I can only attest to what I’ve seen on others, and all I can say is that between the two of these guys, there isn’t any style, they don’t excel at. From Old School to New School, Traditional to Bio, Portrait to Black and Grey, bright vivid colors or intricate shading highlighted by the slightest accents of white, it doesn’t matter if this is your first tattoo, your last, or if you find yourself somewhere in the middle, THIS is the Parlor to go to. I haven’t had work done in a while, but the time is coming and my ribs are eagerly awaiting their turn. What to do, what to do… So much ink, so little time. L8r

A sleezy tattoo parlor in a sleezy part of town, with some extremely amazing tattoo artists. Not to mention they are located underneath the historical City Heights Tower! (ha)Have gotten tattooed by Pat a few times, and he’s fantastic. Every time he does a new tattoo, you can see how much better he has gotten. He is constantly improving. I highly recommend him. Plus he’s super niceand isn’t super heavy handed.I can’t say much about the other tattoo artists, since I don’t have any work from them, but I do have a lot of friends who go to Dewayne and love his work.Ps- You gotta walk up the stairs to the left (facing the bar in the parking lot) to get to the shop.

One of the cleanest shops around. All of my work has been done by Adam, besides 2 terrible ones I had done in Orange when I was 18, and actually Adam fixed one and covered the other quite well. His own style is unique, but he is very talented in ALL arenas (Portrait, black and white, traditional) and uses the best colors. I still have people ask me if I just got work done because the colors are so vivid. Another great thing about Adam is that he moves very quickly while maintaining sharp and clean lines, and when you are paying by the hour it is very nice to have someone who moves quickly. Good for the tolerance and the pocketbook. Not ONE blown out line on any of my work, all fresh, clean and quick. Dewayne and Jackie are also quite good, though I have not had any work done by them I’ve seen what they can do. They also have an apprentice who is learning quick and pumping out some cool pieces. The overall experience is pretty much what you would expect at a tattoo shop, minus the “too good” attitude but not minus the smart ass remarks. Its a tattoo shop, not a nunnery! Nice comfy vintage chairs that were once dentists chairs. TV, Tunes, bathroom. All the staples to make your 2-3 hour sit comfy. Make sure you go in and have a mini consultation before hand or know what you want coming in, no one likes a time waster who sits around and looks at flash for hours before deciding on a butterfly above their cooter. Especially these guys!5 stars for the shop, too bad the downstairs bar couldn’t keep up with them.

Went to get matching tattoos with my mom today (her first ever) and couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We got our tattoos done by Pat, who seemed shy at first but quickly opened up. Very EXCELLENT work!! Clean place, new needles, very helpful about aftercare, and Pat was very patient. Highly recommend this place!

Binghamton’s Best Tattoo and Body Piercing Studio …


Body painting – Wikipedia

Body painting, or sometimes bodypainting, is a form of body art. Unlike tattoo and other forms of body art, body painting is temporary, painted onto the human skin, and can last several hours or many weeks (in the case of mehndi or “henna tattoos” about two weeks). Body painting that is limited to the face is known as face painting. Body painting is also referred to as (a form of) “temporary tattoo”; large scale or full-body painting is more commonly referred to as body painting, while smaller or more detailed work can sometimes be referred to as temporary tattoos.

Body painting with clay and other natural pigments existed in most, if not all, tribalist cultures. Often worn during ceremonies, it still survives in this ancient form among the indigenous people of Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific islands and parts of Africa. A semi-permanent form of body painting known as Mehndi, using dyes made of henna leaves (hence also known rather erroneously as “henna tattoo”), is practiced in India, especially on brides. Since the late 1990s, Mehndi has become popular amongst young women in the Western world.

Many indigenous peoples of Central and South America paint Jagua Tattoos, or designs with Genipa americana juice on their bodies. Indigenous peoples of South America traditionally use annatto, huito, or wet charcoal to decorate their faces and bodies. Huito is semi-permanent, and it generally takes weeks for this black dye to fade.[1]

Body painting is not always large pieces on fully nude bodies, but can involve smaller pieces on displayed areas of otherwise clothed bodies. There has been a revival of body painting in Western society since the 1960s, in part prompted by the liberalization of social mores regarding nudity and often comes in sensationalist or exhibitionist forms.[2] Even today there is a constant debate about the legitimacy of body painting as an art form. The current modern revival could be said to date back to the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago when Max Factor, Sr. and his model Sally Rand were arrested for causing a public disturbance when he body-painted her with his new make-up formulated for Hollywood films.[3] Body art today evolves to the works more directed towards personal mythologies, as Jana Sterbak, Rebecca Horn, Youri Messen-Jaschin, Jacob Alexander Figueroa or Javier Perez.

Body painting is sometimes used as a method of gaining attention in political protests, for instance those by PETA against Burberry.

Body painting led to a minor alternative art movement in the 1950s and 1960s, which involved covering a model in paint and then having the model touch or roll on a canvas or other medium to transfer the paint. French artist Yves Klein is perhaps the most famous for this, with his series of paintings “Anthropometries”. The effect produced by this technique creates an image-transfer from the model’s body to the medium. This includes all the curves of the model’s body (typically female) being reflected in the outline of the image. This technique was not necessarily monotone; multiple colors on different body parts sometimes produced interesting effects.

Joanne Gair is a body paint artist whose work appeared for the tenth consecutive year in the 2008 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She burst into prominence with an August 1992 Vanity Fair Demi’s Birthday Suit cover of Demi Moore.[4][5] Her Disappearing Model was part of an episode of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!.[6]

Body painting festivals happen annually across the world, bringing together professional body painters and keen amateurs. Body painting can also be seen at some football matches, at rave parties, and at certain festivals. The World Bodypainting Festival is a week-long festival which originated in 1998 and which has been held in Klagenfurt, Austria since 2017. Participants attend from over fifty countries and the event has more than 20,000 visitors.

Body painting festivals that take place in North America include the North American Body Painting Championship, Face and Body Art International Convention in Orlando, Florida, Bodygras Body Painting Competition in Nanaimo, BC and the Face Painting and Body Art Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Australia also has a number of body painting festivals, most notably the annual Australian Body Art Festival in Eumundi, Queensland[7] and the Australian Body Art Awards.[8]

In Italy, the Rabarama Skin Art Festival (held every year during the Summer and Autumn, with a tour in the major Italian cities), is a different event focused on the artistic side of body painting, highlighting the emotional impact of the painted body in a live performance[9] more than the decorative and technical aspects of it. This particular form of creative art is known as “Skin Art”.[10]

The 1960s supermodel Veruschka is a much appreciated muse for bodypaint artists. Images of her in the book Transfigurations by photographer Holger Trulzsch have frequently been emulated. Other well-known works include Serge Diakonoff’s books A Fleur de Peau and Diakonoff and Joanne Gair’s Paint a licious. More recently Dutch art photographer Karl Hammer has taken center stage with his combinations of body painting and narrative art (fantastic realism)

Following the already established trend in Western-Europe, body painting has become more widely accepted in the United States since the early 1990s. In 2006 the first gallery dedicated exclusively to fine art body painting was opened in New Orleans by World Bodypainting Festival Champion and Judge, Craig Tracy. The Painted Alive Gallery is on Royal Street in the French Quarter. In 2009, a popular late night talk show Last Call with Carson Daly on NBC network, featured a New York-based artist Danny Setiawan who creates reproductions of masterpieces by famous artists such as Salvador Dal, Vincent van Gogh, and Gustav Klimt on human bodies aiming to make fine art appealing for his contemporaries who normally would not consider themselves as art enthusiasts.

Since 2005 the Australian visual artist Emma Hack has been creating photographs of painted naked human bodies that visually merge with a patterned background wall inspired by the wallpaper designs of Florence Broadhurst. Hack is best known for the Gotye music video for the song Somebody That I Used to Know, which uses stop-motion animation body painting and has received over 800 million views on YouTube.[11] Hack now creates her own canvas backgrounds and her work is often featured with live birds, representing nature. Hack’s artworks are exhibited worldwide.

Los Angeles artist, Paul Roustan, is known for his work in body painting and photography which spans both the fine art and commercial worlds. His body painting has garnered numerous awards, including winner of the North American Body Paint Championships.[13]

Trina Merry is a body painter known for camouflaging models into settings, backgrounds and, in her “Lust of Currency” series, famous paintings. Merry’s collection was exhibited during Miami Art Basel in 2017[14] and at the Superfine! New York art fair in May 2018.[15][16]

Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes is known for her style of painting her own body to camouflage herself against complex floral backgrounds and natural landscapes.[17]

Many artists work professionally as body painters for television commercials, such as the Natrel Plus campaign featuring models camouflaged as trees. Stills advertising also used body painting with hundreds of body painting looks on the pages of the world’s magazines every year. Body painters also work frequently in the film arena especially in science fiction with an increasing number of elaborate alien creations being body painted.

Syl Verberk (nicknamed “syllie faces”) is a commercial body paint artist who, as a two-time European champion and winner of various prizes, is frequently consulted by major companies and theme parks for their advertisements and designs. Other celebrated commercial artists are Guido Daniele, Jean-Paul Bourdier and the Australian company “Human Statue Bodyart”.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, published annually, has frequently featured a section of models that were body painted, attired in renditions of swimsuits or sports jerseys. Also Playboy magazine has frequently made use of body painted models. In the 2005 Playmates at Play at the Playboy Mansion calendar, all Playmates appeared in the calendar wearing bikinis, but Playmates Karen McDougal and Hiromi Oshima actually appeared in painted-on bikinis for their respective months.

The success of body painting has led to many notable international competitions and a specific trade magazine (Illusion Magazine)[18] for this industry, showcasing work around the world.

Face painting is the artistic application of cosmetic “paint” to a person’s face. There are special water-based cosmetic “paints” made for face painting; people should ask before having face paints applied what products are being used. Acrylic and tempera craft paints are not meant for use on skin and are not acceptable, nor are watercolor pencils or markers. Products not intended for use on skin can cause a variety of issues ranging from discomfort to severe allergic reactions.[19] Just because the product is marked “non-toxic” does not mean it is meant to be used on the skin.

From ancient times, it has been used for hunting, religious reasons, and military reasons (such as camouflage and to indicate membership in a military unit). Recent archaeological research shows that Neanderthals had the capability and tools for face painting; although they are no longer considered a direct ancestor of homo sapiens, they lived alongside them in some areas and it is a reasonable assumption that humanity has painted faces and bodies since the very beginning.

In some forms of folk dance, such as Border Morris, the faces of the dancers are painted with a black pigment in a tradition that goes back to the Middle Ages. In the 18th century cosmetic face painting became popular with men and women of the aristocracy and the nouveau riche,[20] but it died out in Western culture after the fall of the French aristocracy. During the 19th century blackface theatrical makeup gained popularity when it was used by non-black performers to represent black people, typically in a minstrel show.[21] Its use ended in the United States with the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s[22] at about the same time that face painting re-entered the popular culture as part of the hippie movement of the late 1960s, when it was common for young women to decorate their cheeks with flowers or peace symbols at anti-war demonstrations.

Actors and clowns around the world have painted their facesand sometimes bodiesfor centuries, and continue to do so today. More subdued form of face paints for everyday occasions evolved into the cosmetics we know today.

For several decades it has been a common entertainment at county fairs, large open-air markets (especially in Europe and the Americas), and other locations that attract children and adolescents. Face painting is very popular among children at theme parks, parties and festivals throughout the Western world. Though the majority of face painting is geared towards children, many teenagers and adults enjoy being painted for special events, such as sports events (to give support to their team or country) or charity fund raisers. Face painting is also a part of cosplay practice, and is enjoyed yearly by people who dress up as zombies to dance with the annual worldwide “Thrill the World” event on the Saturday before Halloween.

It is common to find if someone is dressed in an animal costume, a black nose will be added alone to give the impression of an animal face and not just body. Sometimes, a full face is added or sometimes none at all.

Most theme parks have booths scattered around where a person can have a design painted on their face. A similar activity is the application of “instant tattoos”, which are paint or ink-based designs that are put on as one unit and removed by means of water, alcohol, soap, or another mild solvent. More elaborate temporary tattoos may be made using stencils and airbrush equipment.

It is common in armies all over the world for soldiers in combat to paint their faces and other exposed body parts (hands, for example) in natural colors such as green, tan, and loam for camouflage purposes. In various South American armies, it is a tradition to use face paint on parade in respect to the indigenous tribes.[23]

As well as paint, temporary tattoos can be used to decorate the body. “Glitter tattoos” are made by applying a clear, cosmetic-grade glue (either freehand or through a stencil) on the skin and then coating it with cosmetic-grade glitter. They can last up to a week depending on the model’s body chemistry.

Foil metallic temporary tattoos are a variation of decal-style temporary tattoos, printed using foil stamping technique instead of ink. On the front side, the foil design is printed as a mirror image in order to be viewed in the right direction once it is applied to the skin. Each metallic tattoo is protected by a transparent protective film.

Modern water-based face and body paints are made according to stringent guidelines, meaning these are non-toxic, usually non-allergenic, and can easily be washed away. Temporary staining may develop after use, but it will fade after normal washing. These are either applied with hands, paint brush, and synthetic sponges or natural sea sponge, or alternatively with an airbrush.

Contrary to the popular myth perpetuated by the James Bond film Goldfinger, a person is not asphyxiated if their whole body is painted.[24]

Liquid latex may also be used as body paint. Aside the risk of contact allergy, wearing latex for a prolonged period may cause heat stroke by inhibiting perspiration and care should be taken to avoid the painful removal of hair when the latex is pulled off.

The same precautions that apply to cosmetics should be observed. If the skin shows any sign of allergy from a paint, its use should immediately be ceased. Moreover, it should not be applied to damaged, inflamed or sensitive skin. If possible, a test for allergic reaction should be performed before use. Special care should be paid to the list of ingredients, as certain dyes are not approved by the US FDA for use around the eye areagenerally those associated with certain reddish colorants, as CI 15850 or CI 15985or on lips, generally blue, purple or some greens containing CI 77007.[25][26] More stringent regulations are in place in California regarding the amount of permissible lead on cosmetic additives, as part of Proposition 65.[27] In the European Union, all colorants listed under a CI number are allowed for use on all areas. Any paints or products which have not been formulated for use on the body should never be used for body or face painting, as these can result in serious allergic reactions.

As for Mehndi, natural brown henna dyes are safe to use when mixed with ingredients such as lemon juice. However, a commonly marketed product called “black henna”, is not safe to use because the product has been made by mixing natural henna with synthetic black dyes containing PPD, which can cause serious skin allergies, and should be avoided due to the substantial risk of serious injury.[28] Another option is Jagua, a dark indigo plant-based dye that is safe to use on the skin and is approved for cosmetic use in the EU.

Hands and faces can be marbled temporarily for events such as festivals, using a painting process similar to traditional paper marbling, in which paint is floated on water and transferred to a person’s skin. Unlike the traditional oil-based technique for paper, neon or ultraviolet reactive colours are typically used, and the paint is water-based and non-toxic.[29][30]

“Hand art” is the application of make-up or paint to a hand to make it appear like an animal or other object. Some hand artists, like Guido Daniele, produce images that are trompe l’oeil representations of wild animals painted on people’s hands.

Hand artists work closely with hand models. Hand models can be booked through specialist acting and modeling agencies usually advertising under “body part model” or “hands and feet models”.

Body painting features in various media. The popular TV variety show, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, featured bodies painted with comedic phrases and jokes during transitions. The Pillow Book, a 1996 film by Peter Greenaway, is centred on body painting. The 1990 American film Where the Heart Is featured several examples of models who were painted to blend into elaborate backdrops as trompe-l’il. Skin Wars is a body painting reality competition hosted by Rebecca Romijn that premiered on Game Show Network on August 6, 2014.
