water phoenix

water phoenix body paintingAnother addition to the “My Body, My Story” series.

Not long before we worked on this piece, the model went through a traumatic experience of betrayal and abandonment by the people who were really close to her.

Additionally, she also struggled with self-acceptance because of harsh criticism about her appearance she received from her past lovers.

This piece was her way of reclaiming her body and her life. Hence the Phoenix.

We decided to do the blue Phoenix because water and the ocean make her feel at peace.
