The Body Art Kit-Tease Story
My name is Ken K., founder of the bodypainting company Alternate RealiTease LLC, which began in 2012 with just a few photo shoots, a dream, and the desire to have fun creating stunning works of body art.
I’ve always been fascinated by the breathtaking visual of beautifully rendered bodypaint. After all, if you’re going to paint something, what’s better than the human body (a work of art already)? There’s something truly enchanting to see someone painted into a piece of art — something fantastic, wild, or sensual. Who can help but be enthralled? The process and the results are both enchanting to me – and I hope to you as well.
I brainstormed to come up with a theme for our budding bodypainting business and couldn’t deny the universal appeal of felines as a theme. It’s hard to dispute that a girl painted as a wild cat (or a cute kitty for that matter) doesn’t embrace something edgy, dangerous, and primal, and yet sexual and gorgeous at the same time. A catgirl somehow embodies both the savage and dangerous, and the adorable and inviting at the same time. It seems everyone likes the dichotomy for some reason – there’s an attraction to such contrast.
Aside from the cat theme, we certainly didn’t want to limit ourselves or the art — so mixed in with our kitty girls you might see a fairy or two, a snake, bunny, or puppy; or even a fantasy queen, whimsical design, or some other surprise. I’d like to personally thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoy our world and feel inspired enough to contact me. Welcome!
