What kind of ink you use in this kind of work?
You are a master, the black belt of art.

Is it hard to remove the paint after your finished? I have been wondering that as I went through your gallery.

It's weird, it's like he's come back a different man, like a sign of development over life and how things change you.

That's funny he came to the shoot wearing a shirt and tie. Then he's like "what? You want me to do what?" and has to strip down and get painted. lol That would be fun being a model for this type of shoot.

The painting process on the body looks like it tickles a lot :XD:

This model has very intense facial expressions. It gives an entirely different feel to the piece.
Beautifully done, sir!
