Most painters don't have a body count on their website. Danny Setiawan is the exception—he’s artfully slathering 292 people with paint in 2012. He's been painting traditionally since he was a child in Indonesia, but after graduating from Parsons The New School For Design in New York, he shifted his brush from synthetic to living canvases, layering participants’ skin with lush koi fish, patterns, and re-creations of famous masterpieces. As he told The Today Show, Setiawan became a body painter to imbue his artwork with more relevancy. "You cannot ignore a piece of art if it's painted on a human body," he said, echoing the sentiments Da Vinci expressed when Da Vinci added a miniature Mona Lisa to the forehead of the Mona Lisa. Since he began filling his portfolio with body paintings, Setiawan's work has been far from ignored. In addition to visiting with Kathie Lee and Hoda, DenArt Studio has been recognized by Last Call with Carson Daly, as well as American Airlines, American Express, and Stoli. Many of his clients are not only attracted to the studio's colorful portfolio but also by its unique services. Guests can commission an artist to paint them clothed or unclothed as individuals or couples, expectant moms can opt for a maternity body-art session, and Halloween celebrants can enlist the studio's help bringing their costumes to life with body paint. At the onsite photo studio a photographer captures the resulting images in dramatic detail. Attendants can also paint each other at a casual Art on Live Canvas workshop, and ambitious artists looking to become the next Danny Setiawan can enroll in a body-painting or makeup course.

Hibiscus Day Spa?s body-treatment menu looks good enough to eat: the pumpkin body souffl? softens skin with enzymes, and the Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence tantalizes the senses with a cocoa scrub and chocolate-butter massage. Though not as epicurean, Hibiscus?s other spa treatments are similarly luxuriant. The dual massage recruits two therapists to work on a client?s muscular tension, and a Caribbean Queen facial slathers skin with an aromatic blend of peptides and hydrators. Specialty treatments for expectant mothers and brides-to-be fill out the selection, as well as teen services; mini facials help instill healthy skincare habits and massages tackle high-school sports injuries and tension from hanging on a flagpole by your underwear. For maintenance less aesthetic and more energetic, Hibiscus also boasts an onsite health and wellness center. Here, clients can look to traditional Chinese healing therapies such as sliding-scale acupuncture and reiki energy balancing. Custom nutritional counseling helps participants embrace long-term healthful eating habits.

Stepping into Green Planet Salon & Spa is much like entering a botanical garden?your senses are nurtured by lush green hues and glimmering colors. Lime green curtains offset opalescent tiled walls and shimmering floors, and tall bamboo stalks lean against the walls, drawing eyes to the faux pebble creek that lines the salon?s perimeter. Within the relaxing haven, the beauty professionals carry a great responsibility with their jobs?as the salon explains, ?When a woman realizes that she looks good, her job, her business and personal life becomes harmonious and successful.? The hairstylists work to boost clients? confidence with a range of products?including INOA, L?Oreal, and Sebastian?when adding long-lasting color to manes and snipping away split ends to add to their split-ends collections. Meanwhile, aestheticians smooth faces with Osmosis medical skincare products during facial treatments that wash away acne-causing bacteria or infuse skin with vitamin C. Bodies relish in the Ionithermie algae-detox treatment?s mixture of algae, seaweed, and ivy, which detoxifies the body and reduces the appearance of cellulite in reaction to a gentle electrical stimulation.
