BODY ART
  • The craft of Tattoo and Body Painting

Part 2

BODY ART
  • MEHNDI
  • part 1

3
The art of Mehndi
  • Mehndi is the ancient art of using a pigment
    called Henna to temporarily stain the skin
    (creating a temporary tattoo).
  • It is an art form that is found in parts of
    northern Africa, parts of northern Asia and
    primarily in India. It is considered a
    Mediterranean art form.

4
Henna powder is mixed into a paste and painted on
the body. The longer the paste remains on the
skin, the darker the resulting mark.

!! SAFETY !!
  • Please be advised!
  • Henna is brown or green.
  • It DOES NOT come in assorted colors.
  • Colored henna (red, blue etc.) comes from very
    caustic chemicals that have been added to the
    henna.
  • These chemicals have been know to cause permanent
    scarring and in some cases liver damage and other
    organ failure.
  • NEVER USE COLORED HENNA

This example shows the paste being removed from
the body, and the resulting orange stain (which
will darken with time).

While Mehndi is used as a general body
decoration, it is primarily used for special
occasions.Specifically for weddings (and is
used on both men and women).

Middle Eastern design is typically open, sparse
and lacy. It is also often based on floral
design motifs.
16
The Middle Eastern style is primarily used to
decorate and emphasize the length and elegance of
hands and feet.
17
Design work from India and Pakistan is much more
detailed and highly intricate.
18
The work is based on paisley designs, swirls and
teardrop type shapes.
19
This style focuses on the hands, but also
includes the feet.

Indonesian design appears to have the complex and
intricate design motifs of their Indian
counterparts, but are more open and involve the
use of more negative space.These designs may
also be more organic in nature.

STYLE
  • Skin Art
  • part 3

26
What is Tribal Style ?
  • Tribal Style is actually a style of imagery based
    on the artwork of primitive or aboriginal
    cultures.
  • The style is based on the work of several main
    cultures, that include
  • Pacific Island culture
  • Native North American
  • Celtic
  • Australian Aboriginal
  • Asian (Japanese and Chinese letterforms)

27
Tribal style uses the design quality of the
native tattoo as a basis for inspiration.
Artists look at things like line quality, shape,
use of solid areas and the use of motifs or
symbols.
28
Tribal style is not only based on the look and
aesthetic of the primitive tattoo, but on
placement on the body and size (area covered) as
well.

The Japanese form of tattoo (Irezume).
50
Japan has one of the oldest traditions of tattoo
(dating to 10,00 BC) and is considered one of the
most important culture in the world to tattoo as
an art form.
51
It was the Edo period that Japanese decorative
tattooing began to develop into the advanced art
form it is known as today.The inspiration for
tattoo was the art of woodblock printing and the
release of the popular Chinese novel Suikoden,
illustrated with lavish woodblock prints showing
men in heroic sceneswith their bodies
decorated with dragons and other mythical beasts,
flowers, ferocious tigers and religious images.

52
The novel was an immediate success, and demand
for the type of tattoos seen in its illustrations
was simultaneous.
53
Woodblock artists began tattooing.They used
many of the same tools for imprinting designs in
human flesh as they did to create their
woodblock prints, including chisels, and gouges.
54
Most importantly, they used their unique ink
known as Nara ink, or Nara black, the ink that
famously turns blue-green under the skin.This
is where the massive areas of green seen in
traditional Japanese tattoo come from.

56
There is much debate over who wore these
elaborate tattoos. Some scholars say that it was
the lower classes who wore -- and flaunted --
such tattoos. Others claim that wealthy
merchants, who were barred by law from flaunting
their wealth, wore expensive irezumi under their
clothes. It is known for certain that irezumi
(or the full body suit) became associated with
firemen, (considered the bravest of the brave)
who wore them as a form of spiritual protection.

The design problem
  • 10 sketches - different ideas or variations on a
    single theme.
  • Can design for different body areas.
  • 5 created in the Tribal style - using a culture
    of your choice as inspiration, 5 open design.
  • Finished product to be - a Mehndi design on
    someone (does not need to be you).
  • Grade will be on design and finished product.
  • Design for anywhere on the body - final, however
    must be in an area not commonly covered by
    clothes (socially accessible).

60
Tribal style is...
  • The use of large solid areas.
  • Simplified/stylized and very geometric forms.
  • Use of sharp edges and points (thorns).
  • Limited use of color (esp. blue and black).
  • The placement of the design on the body.
  • The overall size of the mark.
