Trina Merry turns nude human beings into living canvases with her incredibly detailed painted disguises -- think that Gotye video, but a million times more intense. Merry, not too surprisingly, hails from San Francisco, where social nudity has long been a cherished tradition.

Each body painting takes between four and eight hours to complete, and only lasts as long as the model can stay in position. With popping color and impressive precision, Merry completely folds her models into their surroundings, until passersby fail to notice them at all.
