Incredible over-the-top body painting festival comes to the heart of Austria (NSFWish)

The 18th World Bodypainting Festival recently took place in Austria, with more than 30,000 visitors and artists descending upon the small town of Poertschach. What was seen there can only be described as ‘incredible’.

This year there were three different themes for the festival: ‘Games People Play’, ‘Surrealism – Reshape Your Reality’, and ‘Fetish Couture’ – see if you can tell which images came from which theme!

The festival is a week-long celebration of the art of bodypainting, with photo contests, live music, runway shows, piercing displays, and makeup battles taking place.
