This book comes as one of four art books on the subject of body art, bondage, fetish and the nude. They contain gorgeous modern photographs of the female nude. Body art has existed in every culture and on every continent. For millenia man has felt the need to mark himself. This book is an incredible collection of photographs reflecting the design, the anticipation, the pain, the endorphins and the healing that surround this ritual of self-expression. Following the earliest forms of body modification as a means of pain relief or religious worship, to a modern form of aesthetic expression of self, Art on the Body is a showcase that allows a rare insight into the perceptions of bodyart.
