So I had the privilege to work at Castle McCulloch during their massive, end-of-summer party at the face painting booth the haunted house I work for does every year. Well, I'm a big artistic type, so when somebody approached us, asking if I could airbrush some really cool design on her torso, I was all in. Side note: The website had advertised body painting by some group if you bought the VIP ticket, not really being clear that it was an exhibition. So, its not like the girl got there and was just like "Imma take my shirt off".

Anywho, I ended up doing several people and put a couple of the coolest up on facebook. Next day, I get a notice that one of the pictures had been flagged and subsequently removed because it was a violation of the "no pornography" rule. Okay, the one girl, you could kind of see her nipples. Whatever. Today, I got a notice that the rest had been removed and now I'm not allowed to post anything for at least 24 hours because this is the second time I've been warned about posting pornographic images.

While you could see the one girl's nipples, girl 2 had on pasties and girl 3 was wearing a freaking shirt and was only showing her painted cleavage. I don't understand how that violates anything. They are completely non-gratuitous. I don't see how painted people smiling for a picture get flagged and removed as pornography, but some of my fb friends posting bra-wearing, completely sexual images on their profile are not in violation of the same rule.

I'm just frustrated that some people can't tell the difference between art and porno. :mad:

Here are the pictures I posted. Note that it may not be safe for work. (www.photobucket.com/bodyartbykd)

FB has a pretty hard and fast (pun intended) rule against nips in photos. My stripper/burlesque friends have to walk that line regularly. Bathing suit parts have to be covered.

That said, the airbrush work there is pretty rad. Nice work, Lost!

It looks like photobucket took down two of the pictures? Just kidding, they just didn't load like 3 times in a row.

Anyway, I doubt anyone from Facebook even saw your images. They automatically take down images that enough people tag inappropriate or offensive, if I remember correctly. Still, that doesn't mean that it would have changed anything if someone had actually looked at the situation, in all likely hood it'd be the same outcome. I don't necessarily agree with it, but they're pretty straightforward and hardline about that stuff.

Thanks sarah. It was way more fun than I expected and I may take it up as a hobby. :D

I'm gonna repost them censored as soon as I get my posting privileges back. At the moment, I can't even update my status. Like, I really, truly understand the pics of the one girl being removed, but the other two?

That's actually pretty neat.

I think that the reason Facebook is so zealous about this kind of stuff is because of all the underage users and stuff like that.

Or this could be the fault of jealous fatsos with no skillz.

Pick hotter people next time or nude modz, that'd have passed. :d

Those were the more attractive of the lot of them. The rest were late 40s and overweight. One ladies pierced nipples pointed straight at the floor. *traumatized*

Holy shit. I just wished that since I was viewing pix of nudes, they were hotter. I agree with their removal.
