Nige is a photographer I've admired for a while and I've forever been after some high quality body art shots for my own portfolio.
We teamed up with the talented Parminder Bansil; she travelled from Kent to Farnborough weighed down with beads, gems, stick-on crystals, inks and brushes and created the most stunning art on my body.
Her talent really shouldn't go unnoticed; she regularly creates body art for Indian weddings, but I hope she soon becomes a widely-known name for styling in the modelling industry too.
I simply love everything about the results and I can't wait to collaborate with these guys again soon.
The whole design to mid-thigh took 4 hours to create. It was an amazing experience to watch her literally 'draw' in intricate detail over my skin - from the smooth curve of the outlines to the finishing 'bead' touches on the face.
