The Fifth International Bodypainting Festival took place this month in Mainz, Germany. Among the many fascinating spectacles was this young model decorated as an octopus.
This year's theme was "discovery", which inspired a slew of imaginative creatures and creations from octopuses and butterflies to shipwrecks and rose gardens.
A variety of techniques were used to achieve the magnificent results seen at the show. Artists from around the world assembled to sponge, airbrush, and traditionally paint models to create their masterpieces.
