In this day and age, body painting is progressively becoming a well known art form. Many artists are using the human body as a canvas to display their artwork outside of tattooing. Body paint is a temporary form of body art that is painted onto human skin. Body paint lasts several hours unlike traditional henna tattoos that lasts two weeks.
This years New York Tattoo Show will feature famous body painters and artists who are well known in the tattoo industry. Unlike traditional tattoo conventions, the No Limits International Tattoo show is more of a Body Art Expo that showcases all types and genres of art.

How Long Does It Take To Do Body Art Painting?
There is a number of different factors that determine how long it will take to complete a piece when body painting. The length of time it takes to paint your model depends on the design and how much coverage is needed. Typically, it takes several hours to complete a concept. Full body paint without much detail can take anywhere around 3 hours. Professional body painters can take anywhere from 6-10 hours to complete a piece because of the amount of detail they use on their subject.
