British artist Shantell Martin has been experimenting with “skin-illustration” this past year and it seems this trend is catching on.  Nina Chakrabarti recently published a new fashion spread in i want you magazine that features some striking photographs of women with skin illustrations as well.  While Martin’s illustrates right onto the models, Chakrabarti draws on top of the photographs themselves creating a somewhat different effect…kinda creepy.  Sort of a highly evolved, more artistic version of  drawing on the kid who passes out at a keg.  Maybe the art of eyebrow shaving is next.  Top photo is Martin, the bottom two are Chakrabarti.
