Like many cities across the country, New York holds a yearly Body Painting Festival.
Body painting is an ancient art form.
It used to be that both men and women of various tribes would paint their bodies as we paint our faces with cosmetics. It was part appearance and part tradition.
Especially, for ceremonial rituals.
You won’t see me in any body paint, but I’ve included a few videos below of a couple of New York Body Painting Festivals.
