Yakuza bodypaint - closeup by yayacosplay Yakuza bodypaint - closeup by yayacosplay
*********** Yaya on Facebook [link] ***********

Close up of the dragon, painted by Nick Wolfe. The kanji in the golden sphere is "dragon" of course.
I was recently painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe [link] We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before now. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!

Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint.
For those who don't take the time to read my Profile info, yes I am the model in these images.
I also bought traditional Japanese hair pins, and the over kimono was made by me, originally for my XXXHolic cosplay. I love being able to re-use costume parts haha. The full gallery for this shoot is here on my website: [link]

I understand that you have no shame, but could you at least put a mature tag on those pictures?

interesting. If the dragon painting was in your back, I was going to say that it would be a cosplay tattoo for Saint Seiya Dragon Saint, Shiryu. I say this because of the right hand of the dragon, that is supposed to point at his heart.

Just saying. The painting work is really wonderful. Kudos for all the hard work.

Totally honest? The level of skill for that body paint makes it look like an actual tattoo. Very impressive work on the artists end.

Very beautiful and well executed traditional japanese dragon tattoo, especially being in full body Yakuza style. Love the color pallet, and the dragon kanji inside of the golden orb over your breast a very bold choice. You are an absolutely gorgeous model and i love this collection.

Of all your work this is definitely the most spectacular.
I read that it took almost 5 hours to draw the image on your body.
the design is really beautiful and also the full cosplay and really fantastic.
I imagine the satisfaction in seeing such a great finished project.
An ultimate compliment if you let me. goes to your body that made this work even more fabulous.

what


i didn't say this was beautiful artwork. i said it was photo-like. i said the mouth and eyes ruin it. idk or care what peole this picture attracts, i have no interest in animal. i needed to click it to see if it were real or not, because everything looked real except the face.
