Painting Ideas for your Pregnant Belly

Eye-catching Pregnant Belly Painting Ideas that show the world a happy mother-to-be.

This painted baby bump of yours pictured and perhaps framed will be a truly awesome gift that will be remembered forever making you a proud mum.

Not only for your child even though it won’t understand until a few years later but still the feeling of motherhood and expressing your love to your unborn starts at the time you realize you are pregnant.

As soon as you know you are pregnant your inner soul starts glowing with pure joy, the expression that you feel is hard to describe but need to be captured somehow.

All your friends are happy for you and a long 9 months of pregnancy road is laying in front of you and you just can’t wait.

You already know that your parents, parents-in-law, friends, and many others will buy clothes or at least something for the baby but wait till they know if it is a boy or girl.

They might only know that after the birth but you and your hubby keep it a secret or maybe you just do not want to know and just wait for the nine-month and see what comes out.

The main thing is that the baby is healthy, isn’t it? 

When you just think about all these gifts then think about pregnant belly painting ideas but do that fast you might never have such an opportunity anymore.

Baby Shopping

So far, I have not met any girl who does not like shopping and I expect you to be the same. I might be wrong and if you do not like shopping, guaranteed that you will start at least looking around for all kinds of items you might need for the unborn. Items from clothes to the pram, to wallpaper in the baby’s room.

It might be a dilemma if you want to keep the gender of your baby unknown to others if you want to buy wallpaper and you come home with “blue” however a gender-neutral color might be the solution here. Still, when you think about all the shopping, there is nothing special there. It is all known “normal” stuff of which some are necessary but nothing unique, nothing special, nothing out there that has a WOW factor.

Artisans, gifts of a different kind

I have been reading a lot about artisans lately and the love they have for the work they do. This goes from guitar building to drawing, sculpting, and painting and there are many more professions where you will find artisans. I just mentioned painting but even within the painting, there are so many different specialisms that to find something unique I thought about body painting.

You might think why this type of art is a great way to show your love, and yes, there are many ways to express your love and many ways to picture it but not all mamas think about coloring their belly and you just did, that already makes you one of a kind and that is a reason why painting your growing belly makes a unique gift.

Your belly is painted, pictured, framed, and placed where ever you think is best to show your love for your unborn. This type of art is something unique but does not last forever, it is not difficult to wash away but at the same time, you have to make that decision before the unborn is born.

Is it a decision to make something unique? You are unique, your belly is unique and the painting will be unique too. Your friends might want to copy you with their painting, and their husband might want it too but has to wait a few years to gain a few pounds.

It is good when you are preggers to paint this illusion on that belly of yours and make it great for yourself, your unborn, and anyone who loves the thought of uniqueness. 

Start drawing some pregnant belly painting ideas if you are up to it, or just let the artist what he/she does do best. You only need to say a few ideas that popped up in your mind and let the artist render that idea into a real painting on your belly.

Illusions of a Different Kind

To get some inspiration you might watch Skins Wars on Netflix where they put 10 artists together, let them compete in 10 rounds of body painting tasks, eliminate 1 artist after each round, and at the end of the show, there is 1 winner.

Great entertainment but my thoughts went further than just a great show and a lot of paint.

I wondered if body painting is part of our “ordinary” life and how this can go a step further like the body painting I just saw.

Body Painting in Daily Life

You probably now start thinking about where you have seen body painting before and let me tell you that you have seen it a lot.

The point is that we do not even realize that body painting is part of our daily life.

Just think about the following:

Many women already use it when putting make-up on their face and although you might think that is not the same however the women are painting and so far.

Just think about the following:

Many women already use it when putting make-up on their face and although you might think that is not the same however the women are painting and so far.

But okay, let’s leave the makeup to the side then you still have seen it.

Just think about that man in the street, well the majority are men, standing there, absolutely not moving at all for a few minutes until someone drops a coin in a mug and suddenly they change the pose of their body, maybe show a “thank you” and then again no movement like a frozen living statue and that for a few minutes until someone else drops a coin in that same mug.

Although this might not be body painting as these men are covered very often in just one color which can be grey, silver, gold, or any other color they like that includes all the clothes they are wearing and the naked parts of their body.

Then think further about where you might have seen it and although not directly in physical contact there are plenty of movies where the bodies of both men and women are painted just because of the character they play in that movie.

Think about Mystique in X-Men whose body is painted blue. 

Question: Who was the first to play mystique in X-Men? 

Then another famous movie is James Bonds Goldfinger where the body was totally painted in gold and so there are many movies where body painters have done their job and in this light, a body paint illusion of your belly will be great. 

Painting a Cartoon on Your Belly

Pretty sure that when you start thinking about it that you have seen body painting close to you like at a fancy fair where children often have painted small cartoons or other funny illustrations on their cheeks. Having a children’s party where the kids paint each other’s cheeks must be fun to do.

And this brings us back to the topic of this article where we look at another way of body painting but then at pregnant women who just want something else than the “standard” baby gifts which often look nice but it is not unique, it is not special.

Painting a cartoon on your belly is unique but there is a time limit where only in the 2nd of half of your pregnancy your belly will be grown to proportions like the girls in the video and then it is worthwhile to have that belly painted and photographed and perhaps even framed to hang it on the wall.

It would be an eye-catching gift to your unborn although pretty sure that others would love it too and might even be an inspiration for your friends to have their bellies painted when the time is right for them.

6 Eye-Catching Pregnant Belly Painting Ideas

Just have a look at these amazing pregnant belly paintings. All unique, personal, and just stunning. Just imagine you have the same with your unborn still growing. Would that not be amazing on your wall in the living room?

Painting your belly is unique, there is only 1 of you, and is worth exploring to see if you are up to the idea of having your pregnant body painted, well, let’s keep it to the belly, pictured and framed to be placed on the wall in the child’s bedroom.

Or maybe your bedroom or even better in the living room because you will be proud and rightly so. 

Dad

There are plenty of places nearby for you to get a great illusion on your belly but you might even think of having the daddy of your child do a DIY.

And as long as you use the right material that you can easily wash off, it is harmless and you can start over and over again although there is a time limit of a few months that should be enough to get experience and a great unique design painted on your growing belly.

Body Paint Artists

When you watch Skin Wars then these painters are artists and that is what you would expect from a body painter who lives near you.

As mentioned, it is worthwhile exploring and that is easily done by sitting on the sofa and using your phone to browse through the images body painter artists have created and think about what you want on your belly.

Exploring website after website, image after image, to make up your mind, know what you want, and have the artist use his/her imagination to design and paint.

Or make a booking and let it be a surprise what the artist makes and when you do not like it, have a shower and another go. 

Body Illusions

We all know that an illusionist mirrors the illusion in front of your eyes and we all fall for the trick. This is the same with an illusion where the body is so painted that it is incorporated with the image.

Often, we see the image of a female, especially with the so-called Skin Wars however obviously males can be used as well, and now just imagine that you want an eye-catching gift and you are not pregnant.

Think about a professional making a painting on your belly, capturing it on an image, and having this delivered as a gift. How amazing would that be?

Pretty sure that when you grab your mobile and search for “body painting specialist” or something like that you will get an amazing list of businesses in your area.

The Front of the Body

There is no need to do a full-body painting as that just takes a lot of time but a painting of just the front can be just enough.

Especially, when you take a picture of it then you just need to make sure that there is no naked skin left but easier written than done.

The Image

There are so many images that can be an example, which is great, it is just a matter of choice or purpose, even in images where you need multiple people in a pose but the body painter, an artist in its own right, will help you to make sure that the body image you have in your mind can be done.

Just imagine that you want an image of an animal the receiver loves and have this pictured.

Is Body Painting Dangerous?

Body painting is everywhere, many actors who were a costume that they need in a particular play or movie have some kind of body coloring done.

X-Men – I mentioned Skin Wars and knowing that the host Rebecca Romijn played Mystique in the X-Men trilogy movies without any issues then you might say that body painting is not dangerous.

Wizard of Oz – The body sweats and covering the body with paint cannot be good and there are examples known like the actor Buddy Ebsen who played Thin Man in the Wizzard of Oz.

The reason that he even got hospitalized was that white clown makeup with aluminum dust was used to cover his body to get the “tin” look.

In the end, the aluminum dust coated his lungs turning his skin blue and difficulties breezing.

Before painting the whole body it would be good to see if there are any allergic reactions to keep it all safe.

Proper materials can be washed off directly therefore have a shower after the body is painted and the image that you were looking for is taken.

Bodypaint is not dangerous as long as you follow the guidelines set by the authorities or use water-based paint which is the easiest to get rid of and save with kids born and unborn.

Kids Party – Face Painting Competition

If the decision to paint your belly is “not now” but later then you might rethink or change it from belly to face but not your face. How about painting the face of a then-born child, let’s say 5 years young which would be great isn’t it? A paint party with all your kid’s friends.

  • A face painting at your kid’s party will be so funny for all children because which kid does not like to make a mess?
  • And then paint each other that will be even more fun.
  • You can do this within a competition to win a prize at the end although isn’t it better to let the kids just have fun and end the party with eating pizza which the kids will love. 

Best Body Paint to Use

There are many different body paints on the market but a safe bet for you is to use water-based materials that can be both used for the face and body and is easily washed off.

Not only do you protect your child both born and unborn but some paint can be less easy to wash off and that is something you want to avoid.

Paint & Shower

Sadness

Pregnancy is a time of excitement and anticipation, but it can also be a time of worry and anxiety. For many women, the thought of going through labor and delivery is enough to cause sleepless nights. But for others, the fear of losing their baby is an ever-present reality. The national day Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is observed each year on October 15th to honor the memories of lost babies.

And for many parents, painting their baby’s name or initials on their pregnant belly is one way to create a lasting reminder of their child. While the idea of having a pregnant belly painted may seem like a strange concept to some, for those who have experienced pregnancy loss, it can be a beautiful and healing way to honor their child’s memory.
