Even though body art has been around for centuries, it has become increasingly popular for the entire world to participate. Body art magazines and e-zines give the average person an opportunity to share their creativity with professional body artists and those who may be interested in joining the ranks of the painted body.

Whatever the reason, there seems to be a sort of craze for body art. Magazines and E-Zines have increased in numbers to keep up with the information demand.
