body artists (adornment artists) (<artists by medium or work type>, artists (visual artists), ... People (hierarchy name))

 

Note: People who specialize in applying decoration, modification, and embellishment to the human body for purposes of cultural identity, beautification, or self expression. Their art includes such forms as scarification, tattooing, body piercing and painting, and hair styling. Body artists in this sense are typically practicing techniques that are based in ancient and traditional body modification; they thus differ from "body artists (performance artists)" who arose in the 1960s and whose art is closely related to performance art and conceptual art.
