(TruthSeekerDaily) The following images may seem like beautiful artworks but actually feature the latest masterpieces in body painting.

While body painting has existed for a long time (e.g. consider the traditional Indian hand painting called henna), over recent years, the art form has become increasingly mainstream and popular. For example, body painting is now seen not only done in an artist’s studio but also more casually in various urban landscapes.

Please note that often times, it’s not immediately obvious how the human form is integrated in the following artworks. This is a testament to the skill of the artist who created it.
