Body Painter With Sick Skills Turns Herself Into Living Illustrations

The body is the canvas.

While the rest of the world is obsessing over everything 3D, Gigi Rodgers kicks against the pricks with her vibrant body art.

A Norfolk, Va.-based artist, who goes by the name Puck'n Khaos, recently created a series of striking body painting masterpieces that she simply titled Worlds. Photographed by Paul Chin Jr., the images show Rodgers transformed into an almost two-dimensional comic book drawings.

NOW MARVEL YOUR EYES AT THIS!

Rodgers used bold strokes and contrasts to mimic the look of a stencil graffiti. It took about two hours to cover her body in acrylic and body paint.

Rodgers says her goal was 'to produce the illusion of being a part of whatever background [she] stood in front of.'

'A t-shirt that usually has a vast amount of stretch to it was suddenly canvas armor. There is ZERO stretch, ZERO pull. It may take a good 2-3 minutes to heave it on [...] I felt like I was developing a case of claustrophobia,' Rodgers writes.
