The next level of body art. 

Body painting is one of the most original forms of art, usually reserved for traditional rituals and Playboy mansion pool parties. German artist Gesine Marwedele is bringing her surreal works of body art into the spotlight with a large series of extremely detailed paintings on human bodies.

Carefully selecting a concept based on the participants' body shape, Marwedele transforms each human being into a breathing, moving, living work of art. Some of her completed detailed images include swans, flamingos, and panoramic views of snow top mountains and African deserts. 

Check out some of the stunning paintings here.
