Josh Counsel, Bad Ass Body Paint - UT
Josh Counsel is a make up artist and bodypainter with over 30 years experience. Originally from Melbourne Australia, he moved to the USA in 2001. After living in Orlando for 10 years, he moved to Salt Lake City, Utah.
Josh does all genres of make up from fashion and beauty, to bodypaint, to advanced prosthetics. Lately, he specializes mostly in bodypaint and prosthetics. He is the National Director of the American Bodypaint League, a group of artists, models and photographers who meet up once per month to create bodyart and create some excellent images. Anyone wishing to join can visit saltlake.americanbodypaintleague.com. It's free to join, but events are 18+.
Josh owns Toxic Image Studios (www.toxicimage.com) in the SLC area and is looking to put together a catalogue of models who are interested in modeling during bodypaint courses, which would of course be paid. Anyone interested can contact Josh directly.
For Josh, bodyart is totally separate from erotica. He views the body canvas as an extension of the face and a means to create more vivid and fantastic pieces. He's worked with many different people from A-list celebrities to novice beginners and High School Students (although obviously NOT with bodypaint for them) and he enjoys meeting new challenges and making new friends.
