Body painting, or sometimes body-painting, is a form of body art. Unlike tattoo and other forms of body art, body painting is temporary, painted onto the human skin with an airbrush or a simple one, and lasts for only several hours, or at most a couple of weeks.

Born and Raised in New Orleans La, USA, Craig Tracy has always been an artist. Craig credits New Orleans with its authentic and vibrant culture as a significant factor in what is at the heart of his passion, creativity and bliss. His family’s photo album is filled with images that captured moments of the family members ritually painting each others faces for Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras is perhaps the largest costumed celebration or carnival in the world where individuality and self adornment are considered standard practice. “There was never any question regarding my being or becoming a professional artist. It was always just obvious and understood.” As a child, Craig’s loving parents nurtured his creative development. They also gave him the gift of freedom to mature as an absolute individual. His parents were living in a special time, in a place filled with radical changes. Categorised best as working style hippies, their nonconformist principles were instilled firmly in the young artist. It’s safe to say that “Flower Power” and “Power To The People” are vastly responsible for his unique perspective on art and life. Coincidentally, it was that same hippie movement that reignited the soon-to-be interest in and practice of Body painting in the western world. Check out Craig Tracy’s work on his website.
