  • My name is Pashur, and I'm a professional body painter.

  • We're gonna be painting Julie in a t-shirt and jeans.

  • To me, body painting is a very interactive art form; Your work comes alive on a canvas that is alive.

  • My name is Julie, and today I am trading my clothes for body paint.

  • I have never been body-painted before.

  • I'm definitely nervous.

  • Growing up, I never really had much of an issue with my body image until probably late high school.

  • I was in a musical, and I had to wear a leotard on stage.

  • The next day at school, I heard someone talking about my cellulite on my legs.

  • I was always really concerned with if I looked skinny enough. That kinda planted a seed in my head.

  • By wearing body paint I feel like I'm taking off a shield and I'm putting myself out there.

  • I'm really scared, but I think it's gonna be a positive step forward.

  • So, the first thing we need to do is put on the pasties, outline the design, and then we can go in with our base coat.

  • And after that, we will go in with some tiny details, and some shading and highlights.

  • The very last thing that we'll do on Julie is we'll put sealant on her, to make sure that the paint is more durable and doesn't come off.

  • Check yourself out.

  • Oh my god.

  • Ah!

  • It's so cool.

  • I'm not as scared now because it looks like I'm wearing clothes.

  • I think I'm ready to show everyone.

  • Let's just do it.

  • We're about to go and walk around and see if anyone notices.

  • Here we go.

  • You didn't notice?

  • I didn't even notice.

  • Oh, wow, that...

  • It took me approximately 15 seconds.

  • Do I notice anything?

  • Uh...

  • - Wait, what? - Jen's noticed.

  • Woah, I would not have noticed.

  • But the sandals are real?

  • Yes, those are real shoes.

  • I came into this feeling scared, but I feel like I conquered a really huge fear that I've had.

  • Going outside wearing only body paint is really similar to having insecurities.

  • You feel naked or you feel all these negative things about yourself that no one else sees and no one else understands.

  • Sometimes like, you over-think things, and you don't wanna do things because you're scared of what other people are gonna think.

  • Be strong and to not listen to what other people say.

  • And to not let it matter so much because it doesn't.

  • What matters inside is what counts the most, and that's where your strength and your beauty comes from first.

  • That's what I would say to my younger self.

My name is Pashur, and I'm a professional body painter.
