Laws everywhere prohibit nudity and people get arrested for public indecency if they are caught naked in public. However, there is a grey area when it comes to body paint, where people are not always arrested. The article discusses cases of when people covered in body paint were arrested and when they were not. Body paint is considered to be a form of art by many people, and is often used to protest issues or bring to light injustices performed in society. So can body paint be considered to be a form of clothing? Some may say that it is not since a person covered in paint is still essentially nude, whereas others might say that it can be considered a form of clothing since it still covers up nudity. However, regardless of whether body paint is considered to be clothing or not, it definitely serves the purpose of gaining attention to promote the causes which the artists are fighting for!
