South Korean Body Art Festival

These photos are from a couple of different sources, such as the AP and Getty, via the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Photos of the Week. Here is the copy that goes with one of them.

DAEGU, SOUTH KOREA - AUGUST 29: Models participate in the 2008 World Body Painting Festival Asia at World Cup Stadium on August 29, 2008 in Daegu, South Korea. The festival is the largest in the field of body painting and introduces the art form to thousands of visitors each year.

There are a lot more photos, so go to the PI web site and look under "Featured Galleries" for World Body Painting Festival. Otherwise, scroll down to the "Week's Best Photos" galleries and then look through the pull down menus for the same selection. Sorry, there doesn't seem to be a direct link. Clicking on the photo just starts a slide show. Anyway, if you find these photos interesting, check it out.

UPDATE: I think that probably the link for the Seattle PI doesn't work anymore. However, for those who find the subject of body art interesting, check out some of these links. Warning, there is some nudity involved. The first link has a link back to this page, so I figure I owe them a return link.
