Become a living work of art immortalized in high resolution, art photographs featuring you body-painted with a unique, detailed paint scheme tailored to your body. Imagine that we are peeling away your existing skin to reveal the supernatural being underneath. My bodypainting designs enhance and celebrate bodies; minimizing or eliminating surface features like cellulite, wrinkles and skin discolorations. All paintings are done with a paint brush. There are no stencils or airbrushing. Guests lie down for the most part during the painting and have a relaxing spa experience with music and meditation, or invite friends for a paint party. After the painting, we photograph on the dock with Nassau's beautiful harbour and Paradise Island in the background. Weather and time permitting, we may take the jet ski to the beautiful over-water, Never Say Never Bar to show off your body-painting.
I am a Bahamian bodypaint artist and professional photographer working internationally for the past 7 years. My paintings have represented the Bahamas at official events, been featured in art museums and galleries, trains in Europe, calendars, publications, international television and numerous magazines. 10 years ago I walked away from my successful architecture business to travel the world, paint and photograph.

Water Coconut water Juices
Pasties if required.
Paintings take place on my 46' boat docked at Harbour Central Marina, near Paradise Island Bridge. Painting is either under an awning on the bow of the boat or indoors with AC. The boat remains at the dock and photographs take place overlooking Nassau Harbour and Paradise Island.
Light sarong or similar to cover the paint if you decide not to jump in the water after.
Groups of up to 4 people can be painted. Skin must be clean and oil free. No makeup, lotions, etc. You are welcome to bring a few friends to keep you company of course. My paintings are designed to create alternate humans, and do not incorporate 'things' like animals, plants, flowers, etc.
