Body Art Concepts - dkmackinnon

Body Art Concepts


Most of the body art concepts presented here require that the model be comfortable with the artist (in some cases, the photographer as the artist) working in close physical proximity so intended or unintended physical contact will be unavoidable. These concepts are only feasible if the model is comfortable with people touching their body or a strong trust relationship has been established between the model and artists. It is recommended that, if in doubt, the model should bring a trusted escort.


Somce concepts require a professional body artist. These concepts will, therefore, only be offered if a particular body artist has been retained. Unless the body artist has a particular reason to do the concept TF, these concepts are more often run as workshops with workshop fees paying for the artists and the model working TF.
