Record Type: concept
body art (visual works, adornment) (<visual works by location or context>, visual works (works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Visual works that are usually ultimately based on ancient or traditional practices, and comprise adornment or embellishment applied to the human body. In body art in this sense, generally the body is the support upon which media are applied, either temporarily or permanently, or where the body is permanently altered. Examples include scarification, tattooing, body piercing and painting, and hair styling. For the art form that arose in the 1960s among performance artists and conceptual artists, where the human body is the medium of the artist, use "body art (performance art)."
