July 8th Body Painting Day

Body painting has been around for centuries. Warriors use to paint themselves to look more dangerous, hunters to blend in with their environment and kids because… well it was fun. Andy Golub took that to an entire new level in 2007 when he painted people and then took pictures of them in New York City. He was promptly arrested and thrown in jail not because of the art work or the picture but because the people he was exhibiting were naked. He kept trying though and eventually won out because it was considered a work of art and proclaimed this day as Body Painting Day in 2014. My question is, if you are covered in paint… are you really naked?

How to celebrate – Get a painting done somewhere on your body. Take up painting as an art. Be careful if you sweat a lot, your clothes might run.
