Body Art at Escape NYC

What a night filled with great vibes. many thank you’s to EscapeNYC for allowing me to participate in an event filled with such talent. I body painted live and had such a nice crowd around me. A special thank you to my models and my photographer.

The Evolution at The Bronx Museum

Boy, it has been a long time since I’ve picked up a brush. Let alone paint on a body. Something that I’m pretty known for. An old friend from highs school, Ruben, hit me up, saying he recommended me to a friend who was throwing together a showcase and was looking for a body painter. I said ” well, yes I’m interested, of course!” Even though secretly I know I’m rusty as hell.

I spoke to the curator, Nestor, who was such a sweetheart by the way, and confirmed all the details. It was a last minute thing, and my main focus was getting a model. Thank goodness my ride r die model Tina was down. Saving my ass, since my first model had to cancel.  Tina was already asking me what she should wear,  and was more than ready. I owed her a huge hug once I saw her.
Nestor had created a showcase that never left you bored. His theme, was showing how the hard work of barbers is also an art form. And how you do  make the public realize this? By exhibiting them at at work and mixing in art of course.

As soon as  I arrived, the place was packed, drinks were being served, appetizers were being offered, many different vendors were set up around the room, live art and a battle between 4 women barbers was going down on stage.  The crowd was cheering and everyone had an opinion on who the winner was.

Bumping into Marthalica, was such a pleasant surprise, I haven’t seen her sine the last Artist Process, she’s so damn talented.  I think I would always love her work, especially the details when painting hands. Something I’m horrid at. I was greeted by Nestor in open arms, he was looking spiffy and re-assured me that I would go on stage after the male barbers battled it out on stage. Since  I was a last minute add on to the show, I was basically going to be the ending surprise of the show. Sweet!

I spotted Ruben, and gave a hug that probably made up for the last 7 or so years that I hadn’t seen his face. Though we weren’t always close, he was always  magnetizing to be around. A huge smile on his face and a light care free spirit that seemed to be contagious.
It was my call to go on stage, I was given the mic, and quickly after I traded it for a paintbrush. Tina was ready, I started removing the pasties while  I painted her nips. No need to give the audience more than they’re already seeing. One of the guys that was getting a haircut on stage kept looking up, even though the barber kept pushing his head down. What are you supposed to do when you have a half naked woman slightly dancing in front of you? You’re going to look!

I had my trusty photographer for the night, thanks boo, who kept going back and forth every time I picked up a new color,making sure he grabbed plenty of shots of me painting. he did pretty damn well for someone who doesn’t know his way around a camera.
There was a live performance, dancers who just absolutely looked graceful. I need to pick up some damn dance classes after that teaser.

One of my surprised of the night was my parents showing up. if i’m not mistaken, this is the first they have attended, maybe not a show, but most certainly the first time they get to witness me painting someone nude live. Hey, they seemed pretty chill about it. The Barber factory’s event; The Evolution was a huge success. I’m so grateful for  having the chance to be involved in a movement that’s so mind- altering. I never stopped to think  how art could evolve into something more personal, like hair. Especially for men. As women, we’re used to the  different cuts , colors , hair is a reflection of our personalities. Now I can say men have the same opportunity us ladies have.

There were so many wonderful artist in attendance, and they all  killed it!

I wish you guys  all the best, may your hands and talent be forever blessed.Go on and click on a few links to get better acquainted with some of the astonishing skills of the night.

1,000th Post! New Body Art: Horned Crys

Cheers!

This is officially 2minxinx’s 1,000th Blog Post!

 I think that calls for a celebration (pours wine glass)

 As you all know, I spend a  lot of my time painting hot women on hot women. What better way to bless the number thousand with some new artwork. For this session I was blessed with good friend Crystal‘s body as a canvas. She’s the sweetest in the face with the spiciest attitude. What a perfect blend. As usual I had the talented David Zayas Jr. shoot while Rachell worked her magic on her face.

I decided to paint a horned woman with a blue bob on the side of her thigh, just enough to travel up her torso. When I threw the Nike’s on her, I knew it was meant to be.

Let me know what you guys think, and let’s have a toast, and let’s hope there’s 1,000 more posts to go!

New Body Art: Cyn City

2minxinxYou guys know exactly what I’m good for… and painting on boobs has always been one of my best qualities. ha! How many people can say that?

I got to finally meet and add some pigment on the cutesy Cynthia, she started off a bit shy but was ready and willing for whatever. Just like I like it, and I guess that’s what the camera loves too, because she ended up looking amazing. Of course David Zayas Jr. was behind the lens, and Rachell worked her makeup skills for a nice, sweet smokey touch.  When I saw how full Cyn’s boobs were, I knew I had to go big when it came to the hair, go big or go right guys!? Using about 5 different shades of pink, I worked on her curls, and Cyn’s final product turned out just how I wanted, right in your face! Check out some more from her set.

See ya next time!

New Body Art: Twerk Tomboy Twerk

2minxinxfunfaced22minxinxI’ve been waiting a little while for these batches of body art to come back to me. David Zayas Jr. is always great when it comes to editing and obviously capturing the beauty in all the girls we work with. This time we worked with model Annie, and when I saw her Timbs and baggy jeans, I already knew this was gonna be a tomboy shoot.

I’ll admit, I wish you can see the artwork more, but practice makes perfect. I do however regret not covering her nipples the way I would usually cover up the models, which is with, you guessed it…paint!

I hope you guys like this set, I’ll be back soon with more sets from different shoots, you know I have to spoil you guys!
