Lisha’s Body Art is the work of Lisha Simpson. She paints some fantastic cut-out illusions on her own hand!

Caitin Stickles

Posted in body decoration, photography with tags , on February 25, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Today, on her birthday, I want to pay tribute to my dear friend, the ethereal muse Caitin Stickles. The kind and talented Jo David introduced us because (having also weathered many challenges) she’s a perfect fit for my upcoming Kintsukuroi book.

(Warning: NSFW artistic nudity below, so please scroll accordingly).

Caitin is a prolific model, who has turned her own body into an artistic canvas filled with swirling, colorful meaningful designs.

She often posts poetic musings with her photographs:

“i suppose this is a proposal to pose in my own paradox exposed with unbridled composure.”

“forever foreign and a little extrinsic, where to exist is hiding in the mists.”

“im hardly known where i come from, but im running through the cold as im chased by the crows while my fingers are slowly going numb. my years have been spent racing, racing, and racing to catch the sun all the while hunting for a sanctuary to be free of whats next to come.”

Thank you Caitin, for all you’ve brought to my life from afar.

Ah, some fine comic book art, yes? Nope. It’s some fine BODY PAINT. Yes, you read that right. This is Kay Pike’s uncanny comic character reproduction on a canvas of human skin.

She does such a good job that it’s nearly impossible to make out some of the natural physical features she has camouflaged.

Perhaps some of your childhood favorite heroes and villains made it into her portfolio.

Gore and shock value can be great for Halloween, but illusions are quite impressive in their own unique way.

Halloween Countdown: Ghost Nails

This three dimensional Halloween nail art is delightfully subtle. But once you see it…wow. I love how well she articulates the tiny hands.

Halloween Countdown: Body Electric

Posted in body decoration, halloween, makeup, undead with tags , , , on October 13, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Believe it or not, Body Electric is the work of an “amateur bodypaintress.”

These neon zombie vixens are some of the most eye catching body paint work I’ve ever seen.

Seriously, imagine showing up to a Halloween party painted Body Electric style. Who could look away?

This girl definitely has a bright (*groan* pun intended) future in body art, if she chooses! And I hope she does.

Halloween Countdown: Creepy Makeup

Posted in body decoration, halloween, horror, macabre, makeup, monsters, skulls and skeletons, undead with tags , , , , , , , on October 5, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

This is not your average Halloween makeup. Are you ready to see some stellar skills and masterful makeup illusions?

Creepy-Monster

The effect itself is great, and I imagine it must be extra surreal to see the human mouth talking within this design.

Brilliant use of an add-on prosthetic chin!
