Belly Painting

Earlier this summer I met some wonderful neighborswhich happen to have a lot of common liking. They have a pretty 17 month old who loves to share toys and sippy cup with Mariann, they're using cloth diapers and have no TV in their living room...

And the mommy, which is about the same age than me, is an artist.

Their house is full of her paintings, the living room full with on going projects.
She also tattoos and body paint for a living.

Yesterday, on one of our frequent visit (the babies get along so well and are way easier to entertain that way!) we talked about her body painting and something lighted in her head: She suddenly remembered she wanted a belly for her porte-folio!

She pretty much had it right in her face for some month....

So we "set an appointment" for this morning.

This is what came out after about one hour of work.

It is SO pretty!!

We were going for a Gaïa/Earth belly, but we found this one (in google pic) when browsing for inspiration. We automatically concluded that a moon would fit me the best! The Fairy is throwing glitter though you can't see it much...

I love the twist she put to it, and it looked so easy to do! Each time I go there I feel like painting... then I remember all my sewing projects the mess painting makes...

It was a great experience and we're meant to do another one if I'm still pregnant when she arrives from a trip for a body painting contract.
I'm 37 weeks today, which is considered at term. Those makes such wonderful pictures! She took some with her own camera and they came out really great, can't wait to show you those :)


  1. Wow! Id never want to wah it away. That is gorgeous!


  2. You look absolutely gorgeuos with your belly painting, it is so perfect and wonderful, Andréann! I loved all the photos, but Mariann kissing your belly is too lovely. What a great artist you found and so sweet you became friends! :o)

    Kisses from us.

  3. Such a gorgeous painting! How awesome is that! I wanted to do a plaster cast of my belly when I was pregnant with Tyr to paint but never got around to it lol.

  4. Wow...it's so beautiful. So much better then the picture you found online.
