The 25 Most Beautiful and Ambitious Body Art Projects

We absolutely love the idea of body art, especially when it’s executed with grace and beauty and most of all, a sense of surprise. It’s one thing to paint on a set of fake clothing; it’s another thing entirely to turn the human body into an unrecognizable work of art.

We’ve selected some of the most wildly ambitious examples of body art found on the web and shared them with you here. These projects represent the pinnacle of creativity when it comes to deconstructing the human form and doing something entirely new with it.

We’ve ordered the body art in a countdown, so be sure to get to the end to see the best of the best! If you’re ready to have your mind blown, read on.


 

25. Body Cello

While not the most realistic interpretation of a cello (they stand on the ground on an endpin), we love the audacious and sexy positioning here. Even the model’s hair is worked into the project, with hair pins looking like tuning knobs.

 

24. Red Brick Camouflage

This project is deceptively simple, purposely designed to blend in. The varied shades of brick are perfectly lined up with the underlying wall, giving us the impression of a futuristic optical camouflage from a Metal Gear Solid game!
