I have had this tattoo idea in my head for about a year now and finally got to finish this photoshoot, think I am done with bodypaint shots for a good while, moving on to something new, still have to post some Superhero shots I have taken but not processed though. Eva hrönn did the makeup/bodypaint and designed the tattoo, took her about 2 hours, she´s both good and fast! I really like the outcome, we wanted a blend of tribal and henna.
Lighting was 4 lights, two positioned in the frame (had to clone out the stands), one over her shoulder behind her hair and another one slightly lower than the arms, on the left. Then two striplight softboxes on both sides of her.
This is a "frozen" frame and she was slamming like a professional headbanger in this shot, hence the motion of the hair. This was the very last frame taken in the 4 hour long photoshoot, sometimes it pays off to spend another 5 minutes or so even though you think you are done.
