2 Hr Body Painting Session w Photos
I will turn your body into a living piece of art, (or at least, accent the living piece of art you already are!). You will receive one 2 hour long body painting session, and photo shoot. You'll send me some details about what you're looking for, we will meet, and based on your preferences, I will use hypoallergenic body paints to transform you into art. Once you've been painted, I will take photos of you to ensure you have a record of the experience. Please see the photos for some of the work I've done in the past.
This is great for anyone who loves art and loves getting their body involved with their art. This is for anyone who just wants to try a new experience. This is for anyone who's into modeling. It's great as a personal memory, as a gift for a partner, or even as a costume for a specific event. Lots of ways to benefit!
Note that I am not a professional photographer; I have some skill and really good eye, but I will not show up with portable backgrounds, a tripod, and other fancy equipment. I've got a good camera, and I'm willing to use it to help you create great memories. It's a good idea to shoot outside, so you might want to have a nearby park or some other green space in mind.
I am willing to travel roughly 30 miles to offer this service. Generally speaking, I'd like to stay in the Long Island, nyc Metro area, though I could be coaxed into Jersey for the right project.
You may choose to have your face painted, or (most) parts of your body. I will not paint private places/genitals during our first session. After we meet, if we're comfortable with one another, we can discuss a full body piece for a future session.
Training & Qualifications
I have been body painting for over 10 years, and currently paint at a monthly event in NYC called the Poetry Brothel. I find that the body is the best canvas, and doing photo shoots with painted models is an amazing experience.
Availability & Preferences
My schedule is very flexible. I'm generally free Tuesday-Friday from 10am-4pm, and after 8:30pm. Weekends are negotiable.

About Lilah Quinn
I'm a Pan-sexual, Gender Queer, polyamorous, sex worker, as well as a feminist, a mother and a Pagan. I'm covered in ink, haven't seen my natural hair-color in years and my politics are extremely libe...ral. You could say I live a non-traditional life, and you wouldn't be wrong. I'm always open to honest, authentic, questions about myself & my lifestyle; I won't engage with anyone trying to belittle or demean that lifestyle. I've often been called a 'Jack of all trades,' and it's a pretty apt description. My time is split between a lot of different activities. When I'm not parenting my 2 year old son, you can find me playing my guitar, singing and generally making a somewhat musical racket. I also travel across the country fairly often to teach various workshops in the Reclaiming Tradition of earth-based Spirituality (and sometimes in other countries too). I enjoy putting my hands to good use (shockingly, that's not meant to be innuendo, I swear); this means crafting all kinds of handmade stuff (including but not limited to: masks, journals, mini altars, woodburned rune sets, jewelry, bath salts, incense, oil blends, herbal infused honey, and even, occasionally, clothing). Basically, I like making shit, and sometimes I even get to sell some of it. Yes, I have an Etsy store (who doesn't these days?) but I'm so looking forward to the opportunity to barter. In addition to teaching and crafting I also have a passion for body painting and costuming. 2 or 3 times a week I also work at a strip club, and yes; I do enjoy my work, though almost certainly not for the reasons most people suspect. Yes, I identify as a sex worker. No, that term does not apply only to prostitutes. I advocate for Decriminalization as well as the Sex Worker rights movement. Beyond what I do for income, I'm a consummate nature-lover. Camping, hiking, and general outdoor adventures are quite near the top of my list. Give me a good campfire in the mountains over a night out at a bar any day. In terms of physical activities, I enjoy horseback riding, ice skating, kickboxing, pole dancing, kayaking and volleyball. I love to think and I love to talk. Got a reputation for sharp conversation and thinking on my feet. Always on the lookout for people sharp enough to give me a run for my money (or barter!).show moreOpen to other proposals
