As far back as the early Egypt, makeup and body paint has played an important part in social live of the times.

In fact, Egyptian men probably used more makeup especially eye makeup than the woman.

Makeup as such an important part of Egyptian live that the slaves actually went on strike when their was a shortage of makeup, for not only was makeup an important adornment for the body it also protected it from the blazing rays of the sun.

In the 60s black light and luminous fluorescent body paint captures dancers imagination, as dancers took to the disco club floor.

While on the television, body painted performer Goldie Hawn appeared in flowered bikini and body paint proclaiming to the world to "Stock It To Me".

A few years ago, artist and body painter Andy Golub took to the streets of New York City to paint models outside of well know NYC attractions.

After several arrests, Andy Golub retained a lawyer and won his right to body paint model on New York City streets.

His victory spurred other body painters to approach him and together they created the first NYC Bodypainting Day.

The first NYC Bodypainting Day was on July 26, 2014 and presented the work of 30 artists from around the country that painted 40 fully nude models in Central Park just off Columbus Circle in New York City.
