Andy Golub, 43, specialises in daubing exotic designs onto female skin,
covering groups of girls from top-to-toe in his vivid designs.
He exhibits his group paintings in local galleries, but also works on
individual women on a commission basis.
And sometimes he just takes his brushes to the street in search of willing
'canvases' to paint for parades and parties.
He said: "I've been bodypainting for four years and I've been a professional
artist for 10 years.
"A single bodypainting takes around three to four hours, but for a
performance I paint in around 30 minutes.
"And if I do a large group of people at a party or a parade, it's much
quicker than that.
"People often hire me to paint them, mostly women. Sometimes a man will hire
me to paint his wife or girlfriend as a birthday present."
