    In ancient times, face painting was used to disguise a person when hunting, for religious reasons or for tribal identification. Today it still exists in its ancient form in the indigenous people of Austraila, the Pacific Islands and parts of Africa.

    The revival of face painting happened in the 60's partially prompted by the liberation of social mores where people needed an avenue to express their freedom. Whether it be an individual's birthday party, a fundraising event, or a corporate outing, face painting brings adults and children together in any forum.

    Today face and body painting has even become more popular in both amateur and professional arenas. You can see artist's work on the faces of KISS, David Bowie, Sting, as well as, seeing their artwork in commericals, magazines and television.

    Whatever the interest, face painting is more than just a fad and doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon.
