Body Art explores the many different ways, both temporary and permanent, in which people modify, change, decorate and adorn their bodies. It covers the what, why, how and where of 'body art'.

Involving an endurance of pain, it is often a rite of passage or ritual.
Of all body art forms, body painting is the most temporary.
