Did you know about body painting before your were painted? What kind of bodypaint had you seen prior to seeing Trina’s work? Most of the bodypainting I've seen has been on TV and its always related into creating movie creatures in which the model is more of base not recognizable , but with Trina you know its you just a different version of you.
What did you love about Trina’s work? What was different about her work from other bodypaint you had seen? I love how her style is very realistic not all SYFI She uses nature elements although she is still able to make you feel like your being transformed into art.
What motivated you to reach out and do a custom bodypaint photoshoot with Trina? I became interested in getting a body painting done from my Kickboxing instructed that had shared some of the work he and his girlfriend had done with Trina,I was so amazed by how amazing the painting looked I asked for her web site information so I could reach out to her if I feel brave enough to do it. Now two painting done and two more in the works I'll say I love it.
Did you have any fears or reservations about getting painted? Yes I was very nervous to be standing nude in front of someone I did not really know because I guess I was not comfortable with my body , but Trina made the whole situation very comfortable for me she explained everything and I know step by step everything that was happening in just a few minutes I was not even thinking about the fact that I was nude but I was engaged in the colors and styles Trina was using amazed at how she was able to turn me into a canvas.
How did you feel before the painting? I was very nervous yet strangely excited
Did you Trina’s team prepared you as much as possible? What did they do that helped you prepare? Aside from the detailed contract I also received a guided about bodypainting , that included everything from what to bring for the paint to how best to have your hair and what snacks are best so that you can stay feed and most importantly hydrated during the process.
Many people haven’t been painted before but are very curious about the process. What does it feel like to get painted? Its not scary at all , you just have to clear your mind and focus on the experience which is different for everyone.

I believe everyone should at least try it once in their lives, its a very liberating experience that just makes you feel alive and beautiful, it's a chance to see yourself in a different light with no restrictions. I have recommended to a few people in my life.

Her prices are reasonable considering the amount of talent, time and passion she puts into every piece regardless if its a private piece or commercial ,she give each piece the same amount of professionalism and magic .
