The way this camouflage body art depicts a woman, a frog, and a branch is simply surreal. The way the woman’ body is getting merged into the background, and the frog and the branch are merging in the woman’s body is impressive.

We all find dragons fascinating, as we have grown hearing and reading about these legendary creatures. A body painting artist who seems to be equally fascinated by this mythical creature has created this piece of body art. The hands are so beautifully painted that they appear as the face of a real dragon with its fiery eyes, the rough skin texture, and scales.

Seeing this we can only comment – “What a great job the artist has done.” One can hardly make out the difference while just glancing over the watermelons.

Chameleons are renowned as clever reptiles due to their skin color changing ability. The very talented artist, Johannes Stötter, inspired by this color changing creature created an incredible piece of body art. By painting the entire bodies of two naked models marvelously, he painted a colorful chameleon that is shown resting on a green branch. With the help of an assistant, it took him 6 hours to finish the body painting. To make the painting more lifelike, the artist worked on details, such as covering hair with natural clay to give them a bald look.


Nature keeps impressing and inspiring us every minute of the day. Few artists across the globe who take this inspiration a bit more seriously have come up with incredible body paintings that are thoroughly inspired by nature.
