Body art has been important in human culture for over 30,000 years. Clothing, hairstyles, body paint, tattoos, jewelry…all these are forms of body art. Our appearance is a canvas for self expression; for cultural group identification…we alter and ornament ourselves to show our identity. We all have multiple identities, some of which get more opportunity for expression than others. Everyone has archetypes…internal “characters” that express facets of our true nature. The work of body art is to help you express those sides of yourself that need to be seen. I think of myself as a Magical Realist..bringing fantasy into the everyday. Everyone needs a little Sparkle.
