People at Work: Body Artist

This is not your ordinary face painting!

Last week one of my student’s moms came in to create a special gift for the Communications student teacher as a farewell present on her last day of student teaching.  The timing of it fell on Friday afternoon when they were scheduled for Art class and they asked if it would be okay and I agreed it would be fun to see an artist at work. ( I think she is going to return for Career Day, too)

Michele Johnson is the owner of 7 Heirs Body Art Co/ 7 Heirs Media and was telling us about how she was doing body art  painting during the Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears concerts, drawing a crowd as concertgoers looked on at her work.  It is true, she is quick and creative and the design appears rapidly and beautifully and the addition of jewels tops it off. The students gave a nice round of applause and it took no time at all!

Have an event and need some pizazz, call Michelle 412. 586.5006 or email her –     kristal_klere(at)yahoo(dot)com

  9. Oh wow…it reminds me of the tattoos on the vampyres in the “House of Night” series of books…they are really beautiful as well, I bet this lady could do an incredible “paint” version of them! 🙂

  10. The painting is pretty; but what really caught my eye in this pic is the diamond in the young woman’s ear. Holy buckets, that’s one big rock!
