What is body art?
Body art is the adornment or decorating the body with art. Other body artists have been known to use acrylic paint on the skin. This is not recommended by Katori, who is a lisenced Esthetician. We only use professional-grade products from Kryolan, a make-up company that has been in the theatre and movie industries for over 70 years.
How long does it last?
Our body art lasts forever, in photos. Actually, since it's make-up we suggest washing it off at the end of the day with warm water and soap. For The 100 Words Of Wisdom Exhibit we will remove the body art from the participating senior's skin immediately after the photos are taken.
Does it hurt like a tattoo?
Absolutely not! According to our clients, they say it actually tickles, and feels relaxing.
What should I do to prepare for the body art and photos?
We recommend that you wear something comfortable and in the color that you like best. Make sure the clothing reveals the area you would like to be painted. Please do not use lotion or moisturizer in that area because it tends to hinder proper application of the make-up on the skin. We will use a safe foam barrier on that area to protect your skin.
What is the process and how long does it take?
Each participant will be recorded (audio and/or video) and asked to share their word and why they want to share that word with younger generations. They will also be asked to where they want the body art and what colors the want us to use. We will then paint the word onto their body. The last step will be to photograph the final body art design. The entire process take less than an hour.
How much does it cost?
The entire process is FREE for all participants of The 100 Words Of Wisdom Exhibit.

Will you use my full name?

Where on my body will you paint my word of wisdom?
