By now you probably have some neat makeup tricks under your belt — from awesomely defined eyebrows to the perfect pout. But for makeup artist Shannon Holt, the entire body is a canvas just waiting to be transformed.

A painter by trade, Holt has worked on canvas, paper, wood and even metal. But in her search for different mediums to work with, she found her way to the human body, which led her to create some stunningly gorgeous paintings on skin.


Her work totally transforms the human body. Each of her pieces turns arms, legs and stomachs into bright and accurate portraits of animals.


See, guys. We’re not so different from the animals we see running around on the Discovery Channel.
