Body Paint

Body painting is a form of non-permanent body art where artwork is painted directly onto the human skin, typically using brush, sponge, or airbrush depending on the effect and amount of coverage.

Only paints certified to be skin-safe should be used for body painting. Paints marked non-toxic are not necessarily skin-safe, they merely won't poison someone who consumes them. A good example of non-toxic but not skin-safe paint is acrylic paint, which is used by some body artists because it is cheap and easy to acquire.

Some people can have allergic reactions to some types of paint so a patch test is recommended for anyone who has never worked with a particular type of paint before, even if the paint is reputed to be non-allergenic.

Most body paint is water-based, which washes off easily with removal aided through the use of baby oil or coconut oil.
