New Non-Photoshopped Body Art by Chooo-san

Can you believe that these body modifications are created without using any digital editing software? They are the painted works of a Japanese artist known simply as Chooo-san. We first came across the unusually realistic body art of the 19-year-old Musashino Art University student this past summer and in a matter of months she has completed six new surreal body art pieces that continue to blow our minds.

Equipped with some acrylic paints and raw talent, Chooo-san has once again proven she is a master manipulator. There's even a hint of humor in the new works. On a lean torso of a man, she depicts a series of neatly fastened buttons and the same set of buttons appear to be popped open, unable to close shut, on the belly of a heavier set fellow. And, yet again, the artist incorporates a modest prop (in this case a cord) to heighten the believability of the skin illustrations.
