Not sure when camouflage like this would come in handy in nature. (Via)

I have no idea who invented the body painting art form, but I'd be willing to bet that it was someone who got tired of being made to feel creepy for wanting to look at naked models contorted in all kinds of weird positions. However, as we've now learned, if you just smear some paint on those models, it's art! And nobody can make you feel bad for spending a long time looking at it very intensely.

So, we really owe a debt of gratitude to artists like Shannon Holt who make life so much easier for all of us:

You can see lots more artistically paint-slathered models over on Shannon Holt's website.
