For many years now, body painting has been a popular fashion trend, especially among teenagers. In fact, the word ‘body painting’ is derived from the word ‘body tattooing’, which was used in the ancient times. According to some historians, body paint was the main part of our spiritual and everyday lives, often portraying their inner thoughts, dreams for the future, pictures of gods, and so on. Moreover, body paint was often worn by the royalty and emperors as a way of expressing themselves.
In the ancient times, body painting included different parts of the body; however, most people today concentrate on their face or their neck. However, during ancient times, the artists used different kinds of paints, including gums, ointments, creams, waxes, and so on.
This art has become quite popular among the Western cultures. Although most people would agree that body art has been popular for many centuries, this trend was not widespread until the 20th century. In fact, the practice of body painting actually developed during World War II.
Today, there are different types of body paints, such as; natural skin colors, gels, water-based paints, and acrylic paint. The most popular among modern artists is the water-based body paints. These include; baby oil, henna, and petrolatum, which are very popular in Asia, and which are used widely by celebrities such as; Angelina Jolie, Marilyn Monroe, and Britney Spears.
Some of the famous natural skin colors include; reds, oranges, browns, and green shades, which are usually found in combination with other colors. The most popular acrylic paints used for body painting include; umber, burnt orange, burnt sienna, red brown, burnt sienna brown, burnt orange, burnt sienna red, burnt orange, burnt sienna brown, burnt orange, brown sienna, yellow green brown, and yellow brown. Most of these paints contain water and oil, which are mixed together in order to make the painting smooth and dry. In addition, the oil is used as a medium to enhance the color and also to give the paint texture.
This art form has been popular for many centuries, but it was not until recent times that its popularity became widespread. Today, people enjoy body painting in many different areas, especially in certain locations and also outdoors. This art form has been associated with fashion, music, and even sport, and it is still in use even in some regions in the Western countries.
Due to its popularity, there have been many changes in body painting trends. The most important trend is that, since there are now more types of paints available, a person can now use various colors of paints in order to express his or her own personal taste and choice.

Moreover, you can choose between a dark blue-green, brownish-red, light-yellow, or a light-green, or a dark-brown-yellow, depending on your preference.
