Beautiful body art, part 2

You may remember this entry, 'Beautiful body art' which was posted in the latter half of last year?

Well November 4th saw me team up for the second time with very talented photograper Nigel Bunker and very talented body artist Parminder Bansil.
I am forever enthralled at how she can create such beautiful art work on someone's skin in a mere couple of hours while I sit and yawn, chat, itch when the inks tickle my skin, jiggle about because Nige has made me laugh or something..
This time, we decided on a white pattern lined with sparkly silver, and using beautiful white voile curtains in the studio to give a dreamy ethereal mood, this is what we came up with.


For the second half of the day, Parminder added some luscious colour to the white, covering my whole body in pretty pastels, pinks, blues and lilacs.
I had a long silk scarf I bought from Allders many years ago (before it went bankrupt!) that complemented these colours beautifully, so we turned on the fan and let everything, including my hair lift with the wind.
Continued with the same light set-up until later trying it low-key on black..


  1. I placed the commentary here yesterday but it disappeared :(

  2. Sorry.. I never had an email with any response to this post :( Perhaps it didn't save? Perhaps post it again :)

  3. OK photographs 3, 4, and 6 are delicate and romantic I like them very much. You are very beautiful woman and a gifted inspiring model. My English grammar isn't best - forgive ;)

  4. You share the same favourites as me :) I also really like 10, 11 and 16 (the more colourful set) - but the photographer sent me lots of edited images from the day so I couldn't resist putting them all up to see what people's opinions are!
    Thank you so much for the lovely compliments, you are very kind. And your English is very nearly perfect so do not apologise :)

  5. "Very nearly" it is not porfect ;) and I am afraid I will write something very stupid or ambiguous... It wasn't a compliment only a professional, objective opinion of the professional ;)
