This Body Paint Illusion is the best example of what can be achieved with just a little paint and brush. Whoever made this design on this woman’s face did an exceptional job because the tiny blocks on her face make it look like a weird puzzle. The way all the blocks are in different directions and floating in midair is giving a 3D effect to her face. It takes a lot of skill to make such a block pop out of someone’s body. I just wonder how much talent this artist has to be able to pull off this look with such efficiency.
This is one of those pictures that make you want to look away for a second but you would definitely want to give this image a close look. This lady’s face literally looks like someone split it into two. Surprisingly, this artist managed to find a black color that is so dark it matches the emptiness. Whoever painted this did an amazing job. My favorite part would definitely have to be the chin area because you can almost not even tell the difference.
Singing in the SHOWER
This image portrays a shower unlike any other. Someone painted this woman’s body in such a way that it looks like a showerhead went through her stomach directly. You have to agree that this body paint illusion took a huge amount of skill and effort to pull off. This is giving me that 90s sci-fi action film effect too.
Many of us have tried to pull off many fake eyes on paper but it never turns out as realistic as this one did. This body pain illusion artist definitely gave “four-eyes” a new definition because this is absolutely amazing. I don’t know how but this artist somehow managed to stretch this woman’s mouth to the side that you can barely tell where her real mouth really ends. I can imagine myself rocking this scary face look at the next Halloween party I go to. Would you try it out?
Things got a little twisted:
No doubt, this is one of my favorite pieces of body paint illusions on this list, and for a good reason too. It’s a mind-boggling picture where the artist did an impeccable job. They painted her face in such a way that it looks like her face and neck are twisted. The details make it look like one side of her face is more twisted by the knot than the other one, and I think this is pretty genius.
Looking into the Great Galaxy:
I have seen some tattoos in the past that represent the same style of work as the artist did in this painting. The detail here is just to die for. I mean, the way the artist mixed the colors and made it look like a magical galaxy is just remarkable. It just makes me want to jump right through this woman’s back into the Milky Way. How incredible would that be right!
Never have trouble with tying Laces again:
Are you also one of those people who have a hard time tying their laces? Well, not anymore because this artist just gave us the perfect solution. In this fantastic Body Paint illusion, you can see that the artist has painted fake show laces on this person’s foot. The details, the eyehole, the knot, and the extra real ribbon just make this look even more realistic.
Jenga Pieces on her face:
This optical illusion body paint is another one of our favorites. Why? Well, the detailing for starters is just amazing. The skillful artist of this body paint design managed to turn this woman’s face into a set of Jenga pieces with great style. It feels like the pieces are sliding in and out because of the depth of the paint. One thing is for sure and that is I would rather watch this game than play it myself.
Can you loosen up the buttons?
In this extraordinary image, you can see that the artist has turned this man’s body into some sort of sweater or shirt. The buttons look like they are stitched onto his body and the details, and the shadow are giving the painting extra depth. This definitely looks like it came straight out of a horror movie that I would love to watch.
Well, this is one library that you can take anywhere you want. The artist of this extraordinary 3D Body Paint Illusion turned this man’s back into a pile of books. They are stacked on top of one another and they are not just looking realistic but incredibly cool too. You gotta give credit to the man here as well because his hand is placed also perfectly on the fake books. Which book do you think he was about to pull out of the stack?
Change the Batteries
So you are telling me that this is paint and not a real picture? Amazing right! This artist went above and beyond with the shading kit and made this body paint look way too real. If you stare at this picture for too long, you will start to believe that it is actually a human arm with real batteries in it. Although, this would definitely make a great sci-fi movie. Imagine if people had to change batteries rather than get eight hours of sleep every day.
Can I stay in your Kangaroo Pouch?
This one will definitely give you the cringe when you look at it but the talent of the artist of this painting definitely knew what he was doing. He managed to create a kangaroo pouch on this woman’s tummy with a human head poking right out from it. If you look too close, you would want to look away because it’s gonna give you the creeps for sure.
Is it anything more annoying than two zippers?
This body paint illusion is one of the best ones you’ll find on this list, mainly because of the immaculate details. The artist did an exceptional job at depicting two zippers on this woman’s back. While we are definitely stunned by the level of skill and technique of this artist, it’s still pretty creepy to look at. it looks like the zipper is slowly tearing open and we don’t want to see what’s inside.
Genie in a Lamp:
This artist decided to get really creative with this body paint illusion and created this innovative design that has just two colors. If you have seen Disney’s movie “Aladdin”, you probably remember this genie lamp. The stunning details of this painting make it very hard to distinguish where the woman’s body starts and ends. Kudos to the photographer as well!
