BIG Glitter Body Tattoos – Body Painting that BLINGS!

Dec 2009

Well this all began from an idea I had in November ’09, when I decided that the small freehand designs I occasionally offered (mainly at adult events) could and should be MUCH BIGGER.

And would be great for performers/ models on show for a long time as its waterproof and won’t smudge like paint does.

I met the lovely Symone of at a networking event in HK, who she said she’d love to be a guinea pig for me.  And she had her own dance studio, which we could use to paint and shoot in. I fixed a date with a photographer and off we went.

Painting with cosmetic glue IS harder than with paints; it gums up your brushes (and they seem to die quicker), it blobs and drips and is harder to correct. But as soon as I started brushing off the cosmetic glitters to reveal the coated designs underneath – whoooo! Symone and I were both grinning like idiots and loving the sparkle.

I’m afraid the photos, amazing as they are, really can’t catch the shimmer, but there is a video below that shows some of it (though the colours aren’t true!). This was a vaguely peacock feather design for my test shoot.A new addiction – I mean form of bodyart – for me!
