  • Were you born and raised in Boston or outside Boston?

  • I should say I waas.

  • I am first generation American.

  • What do you do in your free time?

  • I am actually a professional body painter.

  • I do that both as a job and as a hobby that it's so cool.

  • That's cool.

  • How did you get into that?

  • I went to school for theater and I took a stage makeup course, and it kind of dived me into, I guess, the art of makeup itself.

  • Shortly after college, I decided that I wanted to dive in more, and I got a job at a professional theater as a hair makeup person, and I started learning prosthetics.

  • I started in my free time when I wasn't working at the theater to teach myself how to pretty much body paint past the face and the neck.

  • And then I started to experiment on other people, and I've been doing it now for about seven years.

  • Wow, I love that you just kind of went from, like, one small part of your body and you just, like, transformed.

  • Exactly.

  • I transformed all of that caterpillar into a butterfly.

  • E.

  • Vanessa, you sound very chill.

  • Are you?

  • Are you generally a very chill person?

  • I am.

  • I'm a very chill person.

  • That's actually what my friends would say.

  • I always say, Oh, it's just the Gemini and me and I feel like Japanese always get Ah, bad rep, But we're pretty outgoing.

  • And now chill people.

  • All right, Some of my best friends are Geminis, which is weird because I'm a cancer.

  • But even though that's a good thing, is it?

  • Yeah.

  • My husband is a Gemini.

  • What are you if I may ask, I'm a cancer.

  • So it's funny that Kevin says that he's a cancer and a lot of his friends were Geminis.

  • I feel like I have the same thing.

  • I'm a mystery.

  • You're not gonna tell me?

  • Thanks in.

  • No, Let's take bets on what he is.

  • Uh, a alone trying Capricorn.

  • What is your favorite part of your face?

  • I would say my eyes, They are almond shaped.

  • They're like traditional.

  • What?

  • Middle Eastern?

  • I guess features would be in Middle Eastern women.

  • I get lots of compliments on them.

  • Any time someone meets me, they noticed my eyes right away.

  • That's very helpful.

  • Thank you.

  • I'm not gonna lie.

  • I've always been struggling.

  • Good question.

  • I did a body painting piece on Toy Story.

  • Yeah, people like fan art.

  • What's an original piece that you were in love with?

  • So if you had a bad day at work, you just come home and you just bust out the paints and you just started going to town, like on your shoulders and stuff.

  • Yep.

  • Exactly exactly what you just said in those movements to just throwing the paint everywhere.

  • God, just remarks way should be at least halfway through at this point.

  • Oh, my God, I'm exactly moving into thinking now I'm just writing her name and then I'm gonna start E Valerie.

  • I wrote it.

  • I think I spelled it right.

  • You said earlier that you have a nose piercing?

  • Yes.

  • Can you describe your nose piercing to me?

  • Yeah.

  • I wear a hoop and it's on my right nostril.

  • And I usually wear a black.

  • Who?

  • Black hoop.

  • Well, that's easy.

  • So, Vanessa, you were telling us about the butterfly by painting that you did.

  • What was the general vibe like was the color scheme?

  • It was monarch butterflies because monarch butterflies are my absolute favorite butterfly.

  • One tattooed on my back.

  • Okay?

  • And it was a bunch of them, I believe, about four or five of them on my chest.

  • And it was a orange yellowy background.

  • And then on my face, I had just neutral makeup.

  • Other than the eyes, the eyes itself was like orange yellow.

  • I always match my eye shadow with the actual body paint itself.

  • And then I had a flower crown.

  • Got flower crown.

  • I did.

  • Oh, boy.

  • Okay, alright.

  • How much of that?

  • I could dio try my best.

  • Cool.
