Body art is one of the more interesting and dynamic areas of cosmetic expression. When you take the boundaries of traditional makeup it opens up the opportunity for maximum creativity. There is something exciting about seeing a bright blue splash of color against the forehead or words scrawled all over someone’s body. The effect is jarring but it always catches the eye. Among the artists pioneering this breed of beyond the lines cosmetic expression is William Lemon III. Lemon’s energetic ‘skin printing’ can be seen everywhere from Beck’s funky video for ‘Gamma Ray’ to the ads for MAC cosmetics. The designs run the gamut from tattoo-esque to completely abstract but no matter the aesthetic there is always something wonderful about the free-spirited way in which Lemon embraces color & pattern on the skin.
