We’re all so used to crazy Photoshopped distortions and manipulations that we might not pay an image like this much attention. Except that this isn’t a photo manipulation – it’s body art! Welcome to the bizarre world of Japanese artist Hikaru Cho, who uses acrylics to paint incredibly weird and lifelike pictures onto her human canvases.
Lots of people doodle when they’re bored, but Tokyo resident Cho, who’s only 26 years old, draws pictures on her own skin. This habit eventually led to a rather strange portfolio of different work – like this face with an extra pair of eyes, which is fascinating but hard to focus on, plus a little unsettling.
