Is the body painting model naked?
Yes and No. My models are never totally nude. It depends if I paint them for an event or only for the camera.
In a studio setting, they wear a G-String, or another kind of special underwear. In an event setting, the women would have special body painting bra cups adhered on the skin, or at least nipple covers and bigger underwear, sometimes a balloon or paper skirt. Male models have normally shorts on.
As a conservative natured person, I care about how my model feels, and how different age groups respond to this art form. Through my art I strive to achieve only creative, elegant, and beautiful images accepted and appropriate for all.
