Throwing a party in Hong Kong: 5 stunning body painting and face painting ideas

March 6, 2017 - 3 minutes read

At Hirely, we’re often asked: “What’s the craziest request or pro you’ve worked with?” While answers come in all shapes and forms, here are very unique body and face painting designs that have blown our minds and made events truly memorable.

Getting an artist to use your guests as canvas is a nice way to make sure everyone is in the theme. Group pictures will look great and everybody will clearly remember that day

We selected 5 of the most creative ideas we’ve seen so far in Hong Kong, and yes the artists are all available on Hirely. What will you be for your next event?

1. You could be a (social) butterfly

Butterfly by Dee Facepaint

While having butterflies in your stomach is fun and cute, turning into one is a lot more work! This stunning body paint was conceptualised and realised by Dee Facepaint. But no need to get your full body painted: a nice pair of wings will make an impression on anyone, really.

2. You could be a Picasso artwork

Ever heard of the mantra “my body is my canvas”? See it come to life with this clever Picasso interpretation. Face Slap’s team can turn any face into a piece of art. Get ready to strike a pose, although this time, you do have a best angle.

3. You could be the flower of the flock

Roses are red, violets are blue, flowers are pretty and the bouquet could be… you! You can’t go wrong with this impressive body painting, also realised by Faceslap, probably the most litteral way to look.. as fresh as a daisy.

4. You could be a live cartoon (literally!)
