I was one of the sponsors for this event, showcasingPole Paradise Studios instructors and the best of their students.
M1NT is a private members only club in HK, fairly luxurious, with 1 wall of the ‘champagne lounge’ area being a giant shark tank with blacktips the size of dogs. Very James Bond…
Anyway I did quick body glitter tattoos on most of the dancers; the show was themed so they were all dressed as butterflies, fairys, jungle women etc. Slight problem being a tanning studio was another sponsor; and like any skin treatment the tan made it harder to do body art (and my glitter tatts took off the tan when they came off!).
Symone had 3 different performances to do so was in 3 different outfits. For her ‘storm’ one I did swirls and lightning on her tummy and fairy wings on her back, which wouldn’t show in her other 2 outfits.
I echoed this in the swirly designs I did on the skin of Rebecca Choi who had a solo on silks.
A few days earlier I had got Symone into the long-legged flesh tone leotard she would be wearing for her hoop duet with Jose. As she had several costume changes and we had no time to decorate between her time slots, I glitter tattoo’d the leotard in the Adam & Eve theme.
On the night I did a snake and leaves (tribal stylee) to match, on Jose’s arms. Amy Liu also had a leafy body tattoo for her pole show as she was in a jungle nymph outfit.
The hoop show was great, tho very low down due to the lack of ceiling height in the club, Albert of shizznitt.com took this great video though not in colour.
