Cool Body Art

From Australian artist Emma Hack, whose lyrical, painted bodyscapes are truly inspired (note: portions of her site may not be safe for viewing at work, although I guess that depends on where you work :))

Fabulous stuff! As someone who has done some body painting myself, I can tell you that the process is very time-consuming, and the work above required lots of skill, particularly in matching the patterned backgrounds to the painting on the model's body. Ms. Hack's artwork above is wonderful, and inspiring, and a fitting tribute to the body as a human canvas.

Wow, this is absolutely amazing! I've seen great body art done with painted on clothing, but the way he fits them into the background is stunning.
