Body Painting is an art of painting the body. Body Painting Art is not permanent like Tattoo Designs. It’s a temporary airbrush paint on the human skin that lasts for only few hours. It is also referred as the temporarily tattoo design art.
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 (hence also known rather erroneously as “henna tattoo”), was and is still practiced in India and the Middle East, especially on brides. Since the late 1990s, Mehndi has become popular amongst young women in the Western world.
