Some of the best body painters in the world turned out for the North American Body Paint Championship held here in Las Vegas over the weekend.  Names like Mark Reid and Skin City Bodypaint were there creating art on models for the grand prize of $24,000  That would buy a lot of paint!

Ever wonder what goes into creating something like this?  The model must stand there for up to 6 hours while being painted. They need to be carful not to move while the artist is working or the design may get ruined. After all that time standing there being painted, they then have to another hour or two of photo shoots to do. And the day’s not over yet, after the photo shoots are done it’s time to take the stage and display the work to the audience.

Here is a short video of one of the models being painted and then on stage.
