Hikaru Cho is a Tokyo-based body painter who specializes in surreal body art created using a combination of body paint and makeup.

Cho has been painting ever since she was a little girl, and while it’s not clear when she became fascinated with body painting and optical illusions, it’s clear that she became a master of them along the way. From extra pairs of eyes painted on her own body of those of other models, to disturbing “holes” in the skin and seemingly missing body parts, Hikaru Cho has a very impressive portfolio.
