Imagine going to a place where wearing clothing is
not required. A place where families can come
together and enjoy a day unlike any other. Indoor or
out, summer or snow, friends shed it all for a different
kind of living. A life free of crippling social
inhibitions with no need for repressive clothing.

Nude Body Painting (and
nude artist's guide) Body painting is a form of expression
used by people who like to be naked to communicate feelings and ideas about the
human body by using the body itself as the canvas. Such ideas may sometimes be
of a sexual nature, but that is only a small part of the possible range of
thoughts that can be expressed in this way.
It shouldn't be very
surprising that people who like to be naked also like to paint bodies or have
their own painted. It is a fairly common pastime at nudist/naturist gatherings
and events, and other festive occasions where naked people are found.
A naked body makes a
pretty good canvas for creative expression. In fact, the expanded possibilities
for self expression that are possible when one doesn't wear clothes form
one of the chief attractions of being naked for some people.
What people who are
interested in the body as an expressive medium have in common with those who
just like to be naked is a certain attitude towards the body. An attitude that
is more detached and objective than "normal". An attitude that accepts, without
flinching, the body for what it is, and then uses it to realize new concepts of
Is body painting an erotic
thing? Clearly, it can be, just as certain choices in clothing can be erotic.
However, it need not be any more erotic than other, non-erotic forms of
appreciation of the body for its own sake.
As a Make-up Artist and
Body painter I feel it is important that you think of the Health and Safety
Aspect of what you are doing. Some of the comments are recommending non-cosmetic
art supplies and products for use on the skin. This is an extremely unadvisable
thing to do. I have approached many art supplies manufacturers and been told in
no uncertain terms that the products are NOT safe for use on human skin!
Cosmetic products (such as Mehron, Kryolan, Fardel and Grimas Body and Face
paints) have conformed to US and EC regulations for cosmetic products.
Using art products on a
model which have not been tested and OK'd could result in a hefty law suit
landing on your lap if the model develops contact dermatitis as a result or
misses a modeling assignment due to an allergic reaction. More importantly you
could do real damage to someone by simply not thinking. There are hundreds of
fantastic safe products available on the net and from Theatrical and
Professional Make-Up retailers. So please think before you paint!
Oh and the thing about not
covering the whole body is not true. It is perfectly safe to do so... someone
has been watching too much James Bond (Goldfinger!) In the world of fetish some
people clad themselves entirely in rubber with nothing but a small straw
sticking out of their mouths to breathe, all that happens is they sweat a lot.
Most make-up is breathable to a certain extent, although if it is very thick a
model may sweat. Dri Clor or a really powerful anti-perspirant applied first
will do the trick, followed by a good dose of spray sealant once you are
The naturist photo and video documentaries that we offer are legal in every city, every state and every county inside the United States. They are protected by the First Amendment and are not subject to local obscenity laws or ordinances. The depiction of adults and children nude in the visual media has enjoyed constitutional protection in the United States since 1958, when the Supreme Court vacated a Court of Appeals finding that Sunshine& Health magazine could be obscene (Sunshine Book Co. v. Summerfield, Postmaster General, 355 U.S. 372). The right to depict adults and children in innocent nude poses has been upheld without a pause for 41 years. In case after case, the Supreme Court and lower courts have always upheld the constitutionality of "nudity without more," specifically referring to the nudist depiction as a fully constitutional form of expression. Our website is widely visited in all of Asia, Europe, South America, Canada, Australia and Africa. The only exception may be countries where nudity of any kind is banned.
