Body paint is an artistic expression that has its origins on worldwide ancient tribes.  They used this method as a way to decorate the body and for identifying its members.  Also, body painting was used as a war signal associated with intimidation actions, and for body camouflage for haunting.  At that time, people used the blood of animals, chalk, colored earth and wood charcoal.  Currently, it is common to use natural inks, body make up, or henna (which is a traditional Indian paint).

For painting the body it is better to use hypoallergenic materials with dry-fast effect, and that be easy to clean with water.  The body must be complete clean and have no injuries.  Usually, it is painted using a spray bottle or with paintbrushes, but you can also use special kinds of pencils or markets that are easy to wash.
