My name is Paul Roustan. For nearly a decade, I’ve worked as a full time body painter. I’ve been hustling hard, against all odds, in the face of countless people telling me “You can’t do it!”

Despite the challenges, my relentless efforts have paid off, rewarding me with significant praise, exposure, and success, a testament to following my heart.

In 2005, I applied paint to the skin of a person for the first time.

I was bitten and infected by the unique art form of body painting. I became obsessed, continuing to paint as many people as possible.

I told myself,

“Once I reach 100 paintings, I will produce a beautiful photo book collection of all my work”, a book I’ve wanted to make for as long as I could remember.

When I finally reached 100, the results left me dissatisfied. I could never envision putting that out there.

So, I kept going!

10 years and over 300 body paintings later, I’ve finally narrowed down my collection to 130+ body paintings, behind the scenes imagery, anecdotes, and 5 step-by-step tutorials all jam-packed in a 290-page hardcover photographic art book.

It’s all done. Ready to be printed. And it’s BEAUTIFUL!

Risks and challenges

The production files for the book are COMPLETE! Funds simply need to be raised and printing needs to be finished.

The ONLY challenge will be delays in shipping. I have accommodated extra time in the delivery date to account for such delays.

I expect the books to ship sooner than estimated.
