Body painting is serious business and requires lots of time and patience. For some artists, body painting is a hobby, and for others, like Trina Merry, it is what they live and breathe. From preparing performance art for top notch museums to creating unusual advertising campaigns, Ms. Merry keeps her plate extra full with some wild projects. “Painting on the body creates a special connection to a person that other visual art forms have trouble accomplishing; it’s a distinctly human experience,” Merry says on her website. Each piece of art is different from the next. She could be using six different models to create one image, or use one model to have them blend into a scene.
