FAQs

Have Questions? We have answers.

What do you provide as a production company?

As a production company we focus on brand and image elevation by providing the following: Conceptual Design, Key Artists, Makeup, Body Art, Hair styling, Special Fx, Costume and Headpieces, and can provide models and performers.  Some are in house talent, and some are affiliate companies we work with.

How can I use body art for my purposes?

If you or your company is in search of a unique way to promote and express your concepts and objectives, The Body of Art can assist you by incorporating body art and installation for any situation in order to accomplish this.  ANY situation.  We have done beauty and body art for music videos with Lady Gaga and 50 Cent, art installations with Ron English and Travis Louie, keyed fashion shows for Venexiana and Creature of Comfort, and have done body art and beauty for weddings and personal uses.

Is BOA able to do clean or event beauty makeup as well?

Of course.  All the beauty and character make-up you will find on this website was designed and applied by the same source as the body art.  We believe in consistency and the full production for our results. Whether is Dani Fonseca keying the look, or another BoA Lead Artist,  the beauty has the same elevated high fashion treatment, and is regarded as a top priority to complete the full look.

How long does the body painting take?

This answer is determined on 3 important factors: how many models, how many artists, and how detailed the design is.  On the average, the key artist and two assistants can finish 2-3 models in a full body design, with a full face of make-up and hair in just under 5 hours.  The more people to assist on the job, the quicker it gets done.

How long does the body paint stay on?

We work with the most quality and durable products in the make-up and body art industry.  We use techniques that prolong the wear and make it essentially water proof in some cases, and water resistant in most cases.  With moderate temperatures, the paint will last until it is washed off.  For clients in physical situations such as dancers, contortionists, gymnasts where sweating may be a factor, we use only waterproof products.

Can you make a stencil of my logo?

We can either hand cut a logo for you, or we can have a few custom made which you can keep for future events.

What if my event is conservative, is there a way for the models to not be completely nude?

OF course, we consider all situations.  When considering a more corporate setting, we put pasties and underwear on the models that we can paint over.  We also can rent or make costumes pieces for models to wear on the bottom.

Why is it important for BOA to work with many assistants on a job?

A sufficient amount of assistants ensures efficient work in a timely manner, and the best result possible. When there are more hands to focus on every detail, the outcome is mind-blowing.  We will always suggest the amount of assistants needed for a job, but if the client should choose to hire less than the suggested amount the risk will be not only having the job take longer, the models tiring, but focus will be more on getting the job done in time rather the job done with every detail attended to.

What kind of paint do you use on models; how safe is it for the skin?

We use a mix of different brands, products, and materials in our work. For body paint we use a lot of water based color from Make Up For Ever, MAC, Kryolan, and Mehron.  We also use alcohol, water and silicone based airbrush from Temptu.  All are hypo allergenic, and do not clog pores.  We rarely use latex paint, as it constricts breathing ability of the skin, and limits detail.

Can I mix clothing pieces with the body paint?

Yes absolutely.  We actually work with a few couture clothing designers for the explicit purpose of sometimes needing something three dimensional.  Sometimes a client may only want or need an upper torso design, in which case given enough time we can find and provide appropriate bottom costuming.

How easily does body paint wash off?

The body paint we use even though durable can be easily removed.  You can break down all the make-up with some baby oil, and then scrubbing with a disposable loofa and some soap.  It is not suggested that a model do this at a venue.  It is better to remove the paint in the comfort of the home.  We will provide wipes to remove the face make-up if necessary.

Is BOA able to do clean or event beauty makeup as well?

Of course.  All the beauty and character make-up you will find on this website was designed and applied by the same source as the body art.  We believe in consistency and the full production for our results. Whether is Dani Fonseca keying the look, or another BoA Lead Artist,  the beauty has the same elevated high fashion treatment, and is regarded as a top priority to complete the full look.

What is a partial body design vs. a full body design?

Partial body designs are designs that focus on the upper torso, from the waist up. Examples of this can be a shirt, corset, abstract design.  These differ in price from a full body design which includes legs and pelvic area.

What if I am unsure of what I want… can some help me figure out a concept?

BOA’s designers and artists are richly developed with fashion, art, and design expertise.  When given a starting point, we can take it to the ultimate extreme.  We do need a starting point though.  Even just a vague idea or picture, and our concept and design team can work with you through the rest.

What is the range of what you can do with body paint?

The sky is the limit.  Any concept is feasible.  If the paint can only go so far, we use crystals, feathers and trimming.  If that is not enough we will add costume pieces.  We do the hair and nails.  If you are interested in full production with props, installation, set pieces, lighting, and video please visit our sister company Living Masterpiece Productions.

What is a kit fee?

All the materials and products used in our work not only get used up quickly, but are also quality products.  We purchase trimming and crystals for each job.  All this is included in the kit fee.  Costuming pieces are separate from a kit fee.

What do models need to do before getting body painted?

Models must be able to withstand long hours of prep work and still be able to perform with energy.  When getting body painted, models must exfoliate the night before.  Girls must shave/wax their legs, underarms, and pelvic area completely. Men need to shave/wax their chests, backs, and legs.  Moisturizing the skin cannot happen the morning of because the moist skin will repel the paint. If you moisturize, do it the night before. Bring snacks and a robe.

 

I have never been painted before, what can I expect?

Being body painted is a unique experience, right up there with skydiving and deep sea snorkeling.  It’s a way to release your inhibitions about being naked in an artistic and tasteful way.  You should expect to feel awkward at first, but as you get painted, you start to feel more comfortable.  It’s a long process, but in the end you feel liberated.

focused on

my own illusions.”
