Why do people get body painted?

Derrick paints people for private use, photo shoots, walk-around art at public events, promotions for corporate events, film, TV and fashion, music festivals, parties of any sort and just about any other reason under the sun.

How long does it take?

It takes from 1.5 - 6 hours to execute a FULL body painting on an individual body.

How long does it last?

Derrick predominantly paints on skin with FDA approved water-activated face and body makeup which can be worn for 4 - 6 hours.

Is it Water-proof?

Water-based body makeup washes off with soap and water.  If you require water-proof body art, Derrick uses DURA makeup (also FDA approved) which must be removed from the skin with alcohol.  Derrick does NOT recommend DURA for FULL body art, but rather for "tattooed" looks. Derrick also offers Liquid Latex for water-proof body art.

Does Derrick have a minimum for booking?

For LIVE BODY ART (done on-site, at an event), Derrick has a 2 hour minimum.

For FACE PAINTING, Derrick has a 1 hour minimum.

Are Models totally naked when painted?

The models in theMAIN GALLERY of this site are wearing only g-strings and nipple covers and paint.  The latex nipple covers Derrick uses blend perfectly with the skin while masking the areola.

How is makeup Applied?

Derrick often paints a base coat on the skin using  a "Sponge and Brush" technique, for FULL coverage, after which he may or may not accent, shade and detail the design(s) with his Airbrush.
