High School Prom After Party Fake tattoos Entertainment

I hired Alexis to become one of our approved vendors for our after party prom entertainment. She passed our rigorous back ground checks with flying colors. She showed up early, set up and was working non stop the entire length of time. She had a line of kids waiting to get fake airbrushed tattoos or glitter tattoos she was quite popular at this event as we have several entertainment choices for the kids. Our school sent her paperwork to reapply for this years Prom After Party since background checks are done yearly for our kids safety.

Great Addition to our Party

This was a great addition to our 2 year old little girl's birthday party. All the children enjoyed watching the balloon animals being made as well as playing with them after. Alexis even came dressed as Aerial. It was lots of fun!

Incredible talent and awesome entertainment for our party!

Alexis is prompt, showing up to our party right on time. I hired her for 90 minutes, but she stayed around just to hang out for a little bit afterwards. Her artwork was so impressive, all the parents were awed and the kids were definitely pleased! The face painting was a hit. The children told her what they wanted, and she figured it out so quickly. Everyone had a chance to get their face painted and balloons twisted. The balloon animals were incredible and very good. My daughter and her friends loved Winnie the Pooh and friends. Alexis made some in advance to show the kids what she could do. My daughter loved her Tigger balloon. I would definitely recommend Alexis and would use her again in the future!

Daughters Birthday Party

I hired Alexis her prices are great. She was professional, arrived early, set up and went to work early. She brought my daughter a Minnie Mouse Balloon Art and pre twisted balloons so the kids could focus on glitter tattoos and fake airbrushed tattoos. It was a fun time for all. I recommend her and yes I will rehire her again. I was asked did she fail to or meet or exceed my expectations I can say she exceeded my expectations and because of that I recommend her.

Special Pregnancy Body Painting

I knew very early on in my pregnancy that I wanted to get a tree with a baby painted on my body so I searched and found Alexis and she was very professional and kept in contact with me while my pregnancy developed so there would be a nice full tummy to paint on. I did not want to show too much so she was very creative in her way to paint me and show some but not too much.
She came to my house and set up and went right into the creative process. I am very pleased with the results and I will use her services again. I happily recommend her to you.

Fundraising at Dog Days of Summer

I ran into Alexis at a fundraiser earlier in the year. She was eager to help raise money for the animals. We hired her to do face painting and body art at our annual Dog Days of Summer Event.
She showed up early and was set up on time. She was professional and friendly. She did a great job and exceeded my expectations. I will gladly recommend her and I will rehire her again for next years event. She even has pet safe fur paint and painted our volunteers dog Bruce with the Superman logo!

Confirmation Party

I am so glad I found and hired Alexis for my daughters confirmation party at the Elm Street Studio a truly lovely venue. She showed up early, set up and began entertaining the children. She did a great job and before long the adults were just as entertained by her cool body art as the kids. I have an event in Aug and another one in Dec of this year and I will be rehiring Body Paint Misbehavin again! She was very good with the kids too.

I hired Alexis to entertain at the Car Dealerships Customer Appreciation events for two different dealerships in the metroplex. She showed up on time was friendly and professional. She did a great job by exceeding my expectations. I will rehire her in the future and I recommend that you hire her for your events as well. She encouraged me to have some body art done and since I love penquins I asked her to paint one on my hand, she did such a great job painting my penquin that I really did not want to wash it off.

UV Body Paint for LIghts All Night Dallas Event 2012

We needed a bodypainter who used UV paint for a 3 day event at the end of the year in Dallas called "Lights All Night." My group (4 of us) and I had such a wonderful time working with Alexis. She is so professional and artistically gifted! She was able to incorporate her ideas and elaborate on ours and combined them perfectly for our event. She also met with us on New Years Eve even while she had her own event to get to she took the time and had us all done in time to get to our event with black light paint. She was absolutely delightful to work with and we will certainly come to Alexis with all our body paint needs.

SailerMate Sailorette on Lake Lewisville

I had an event to go to at the lake and wanted a sailor shirt painted on me. If you want to be the life of the party Body Paint Misbehavin is the place to go. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond my expectations. I had her paint a sailor shirt on me and it was so realistic with all the shadows and details people were actually pinching me because they thought it was a real shirt, just super tight : ) Definitely worth the experience! My picture ran in DMagazine and is on her website too.

Sugar Skulls for Our Yearly Halloween Party

I first got in touch with Body Paint Misbehavin through a simple Google search. I emailed her along with several other body paint artists and she was the only one who got back to me. The whole experience, from beginning to end, was outstanding. We met a week prior to the event to go over ideas, and Alexis was extremely informative and had great input. The day of the event we met at her studio and she was extremely professional. I was blown away by the finished product and could not believe how talented she is. I will definitely be using her in the future!

Washington Redskins Fans!!!

My step dad and I drove up from the coast to watch our favorite team the Redskins on Thanksgiving at the Texas Stadium. We were not having much luck finding a body painter that was available that day... we were relieved when Alexis answered her phone and agreed to our project. She made everything easy for us saving us drive time and her family even fed us too.
We had shaved our heads so that we could have her paint Redskins helmets on us for the game. She was skilled and used multi layer steps to make sure the paint would not sweat off but last the whole game. Her body art was a huge hit not only with us but with the other fans at the stadium everyone wanted to take our pictures. We will use her again and gladly recommend her.

Tiger Stripes for Halloween Event

I came across Body Paint Misbehavin when I googled body painters in my area. I was looking for someone that could paint tiger markings on my body for an event on Halloween. I emailed the link on the page and I immediately received a response. The artist, Jessica Alexis was great. She was very quick with getting back to me anytime I emailed her with questions.
The day of the event I arrived at her studio at 4pm
I needed to be ready by 7pm and she was great at making sure she had plenty of time to get the job done with time left over so I wouldn't be late. Although she was working with a picture I showed her she still kept it original and made great suggestions, from what shade of orange would look best on my skin tone, to how to paint my face and still accentuate my features.
She was also very nice making me feel very comfortable and played music while she worked making the atmosphere very laid back. Overall I absolutely LOVED my makeup. I couldn't have been happier with the end results, not only did she do a similar job to the picture I showed her but she went beyond that and made me look better than the picture! I couldn't have been happier with the results, I'll definitely be coming back to her in the future.

I hired Alexis to paint me for Stars game last years

I hired Alexis to paint the Dallas Stars logo on my face for a Stars hockey game last year.
She was at her studio waiting for me when I arrived, she had everything ready and started working with me right away. She did several steps along the way and my face painting lasted the entire game and I got a lot of compliments.
I was really pleased with her artwork and how nice and professional she was, She has since painted me more than once and I gladly recommend her.

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 10 - 360 minutes
  • Fee: Location duration supplies $100-200
  • Insurance: I carry insurance that is suitable for up to very large venues.
  • Unions: World Body Painting Association Member

Overview

I show up early to set up for your event whether it is a casual family back yard party or a professional table or booth depending on size of event and deliver great body art per our agreed upon requests.

Additional Booking Notes

I need time to create, many a time I have found that clients do not fully understand what goes into body painting. Depending on what I am painting there is often days and days to weeks worth of practicing and prepping to get a theme to look right I might paint something entirely many many times before I get to your day and I paint it on you. Art classes for realism, technique classes with my tools, studying and researching lighting or how cloth falls in different ways. I don't just show up and spray you with paint cans as one client told me as she was justifying why she showed up an hour late for her session, "you're just gonna spray me with paint cans you don't need all that time." Ummm wow.... o.k. So there is a great deal of behind the scenes work that clients do not see. I research reference materials for my reference picture or I create a brand new one and use that as my reference. Making sure the colors are correct, if there is any additional ordering for costume or special FX's prosthetics etc etc .... skin pre prep, applying body paint, skin post prep afterwards there is an art to this art!

BodyPaint Misbehavin

I am the artist/entertainer Jessica "Alexis" Steele. I am a mother of 3 adult children and love being an artist and providing family entertainment for families or companies. A creatively engaged mind has no time to misbehave.

I paint for kids parties, private commission pieces and I paint live for shows. I paint models for promotions or calendars. I paint with many kinds of body paint water based, alcohol based, Ultra Violet or UV activated body paint for use in raves and clubs, I also do small body art pieces that are really eye catching a popular utilizing glitter or fake airbrushed tattoos. Applications are too numerous to list here I give a full description on my website.

I typically show up a few minutes before to an half hour before depending on how extensive my set up is going to be if its just bring my paints and supplies in to a table already set up or if its bring in my basic table and set up or if its bring my 10 x 10 pop up tent with tables chairs banners and my own generator. If I cannot arrive early I stay later so you get the full time purchased.

Then after our event has ended, I have a review form to fill out, if the job performed met or exceeded your expectations the review is critical and tipping the artist is optional and greatly appreciated.

NEWS FLASH this article was from 2011 I believe: If you saw the recent article: "FDA warns consumers about dangers of temporary tattoos"

It brings up very valid concerns as follows:

The Jist of the article is henna tattoo ink that has been supplemented with various non skin friendly chemicals to darken or lengthen the durability of the henna inks.

Ask your body painting artist if she is a member of the World Body Painting Association. One of the things we do is educate ourselves on professional products that are designed SPECIFICALLY to be safe for skin.

One of our CREEDS states: We do not use anything on the skin, face or hair that could in any way harm the person. If it was not designed specifically for use on skin, hair or face we are not going to use it.

Now ... that being said there are the greedy opportunists that jump into any fad that is making money and to make a quick buck they will do anything at all including put others in harms way.

Choose your artist carefully like with anything do a little research an educated consumer is the best equipped consumer. The cheapest priced quotes may not be the best choice in this field you get what you pay for and sadly sometimes you pay for what you get if the artist is in it for a quick buck using acrylics on your face or kids faces you may wind up with chemical burns.

I am a committed artist and anything I put on your skin is designed and created and tested and FDA approved to be used on skin. Many of my paints are even safe to put on a babies skin. I will not put you or your children in harms way, ever.

In fact this brings me to my final point, you get what you pay for; if you are getting dirt cheap prices you might be getting cheap paint from who knows where Michael's sells acrylic paint for $5.00 a large tube which would paint 200 faces but it is toxic to skin. My paint cost 2.5 times that $5.00 amount for water based and 9 times that amount for alcohol based paints and 12 times that amount for uv paints and covers maybe 40 faces so you see there is a huge difference in outgoing expenses from people who do not abide by safety standards and cut corners.

My paints, skin sweat sealers, sealers and skin adhesives even the body glitter is make up grade ... are all moderately to very expensive to purchase. My prices in part reflect what I have to pay for products that keep you safe and me in good standing with my peers and the World Body Painting Association and my clients whom of which about 1/4 of them are children. I will always pay more out of pocket to keep myself liability free and your family and friends safe.
