Almost everyone has attended an amusement park, county fair, or sporting event and had their face painted (don’t forget Halloween). The designs are usually crude and simple, done by a friend, relative, or greasy haired teen who understands there are 10 others waiting their turn in line.
In the examples below, all discovered on Flickr, the artists have done an exceptional job of taking face painting to the extreme. A precise hand and creative mind have brought these images to life; in some cases it’s even a skewed expression. I found many of them to be downright creepy.
