Painting On The Human Form To Save Tigers

Body painting is an art form that began in tribalist cultures. Contemporary artist Craig Tracy uses various paint techniques on a canvas of human skin to create incredible nature and animal works.

Tigers have always been his favorite animal and when asked to aid in the effort to protect, repopulate and re-wild this the most endangered tiger in the world, Craig immediately said yes. "Only 100 South China Tigers are reported to remain alive and if my body painting can help increase that number by one then I'll have lived with purpose." states the artist.

Either that's a lion or a really fashionable tiger with very stylish, wavy long hair. Makes me want to run my fingers through it. That tiger has class.
