This Swimming Sea Turtle is Actually a Woman Covered in Body Paint

Johannes Stötter is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable names in the world of body painting and body art. Using the human body as a canvas, this Italy-based artist continues to push the boundaries with his groundbreaking work, creating incredible body painting illusions that are rarely seen elsewhere.

For his latest creation, Stötter decided to transform model Sara Costabiei into a life-like sea turtle that is swimming through the ocean. His work was so convincing that you would think the clip came from some marine life documentary. We wouldn’t even notice that there was something wrong if the model didn’t start revealing her true shape towards the end.
