Tattoo Artist Vs. Painter: Body Paint Challenge


hi I’m Denise I’m a tattoo artist and I’m Sadie I’m a painter and today we are going head-to-head to paint someone’s arm based on a theme for battling I’m scared I decided I wanted to be tattooer when I was 13 years old by the time I turned 18 I was able to pursue my first apprenticeship and then I came to Los Angeles I pursued a second one and I have been working for the last eight years consistently so I’ve been painting off and on for about ten years this year have actually finally launched like my own Etsy shop so I’m now professionally selling my artwork but my background is in like abstract oil painting so I’m excited to see what I can do with body paint it’s magic oh okay I’m like I’m thinking like sparkles and just I’m gonna go full on abstract cuz that’s really all I know and that’s my comfort zone so no fine lines and details for me yeah weird I’m the arms yeah here are my arms I put all my best ones today those are the paper grab you grabbed me I’m gonna grab you time your canvas this is gonna be weird this feels so good does it I’m gonna ask what is your game plan right now I’m excited I’m gonna do some like just cool colors gonna be like abstract and I’m gonna add some sparkles on the top and then it’s just gonna be like a magic wand right there so it seems like all this magic coming out of the magic wand that’s what I’m gonna do and I’m excited and what are you doing I’m sorry I might want to curse he’ll believe it I’ve always wanted to be bleep good what dreams come true does it make you nervous and I’m right here in your face watching like I’m like kind of shaking but I just need to like relax and let get used to this [Music] okay I remember when I was it was like when I was in art class it was an oil painting class and we were told not to like ever eat around oil paints because they’re highly toxic I know this but I always eat around like when I paint like you have to have snacks but then I get paint everywhere and then I’m like I’m pretty sure I just ate poisons like a oil paint for sure I feel like that happens a drink brush water a lot I know it’s bad no I know you know how many times I’m afraid I’m gonna like drink turpentine like the thing that you clean your oil with it’s crazy [Music] I’m doing great I have one small pain in my wrist but otherwise I’m fine which we’re here well it’s just I’d want to stay still because you can’t go this way is that what the problem is your friend yeah you know I don’t think I really like body painting I don’t like the way that it is not doing what I want it to [Music] there’s glitter II guess you get a dragon you’ve been pretty good yeah see there’s so many fun things happening over there on that side oh not good done I had a great time the paint that’s helped was a bit challenging so we have a magic wand on my left arm here I like it a lot the colors blend very beautifully I think it’s a very literal interpretation which isn’t bad it’s just literal and I like it it’s what I would think of when I think of magic it’s like I feel like I finally got it down at the end that I wished that now I could go back and do the background because it would have been a lot prettier but I’m proud of it I mean didn’t know what the hell I was doing with the stuff so well it’s rad it’s still good my other room I’ve really mostly only have been able to see this corner of oh wow it is really sparkly can you see it I can also now see it Wow she’s wearing a thick ring oh yeah that’s incredible I like I appreciate her literal take on magic and this is blowing me away in a different way yeah every wanted to do this for so long listen oh they’re incredible the challenge is officially complete I have done my assessment of both arms and it has been decided that the niece is the winner well deserved well it is fair hands down great job thank you guys I really appreciate it so much I had such a good time fighting with you guys today [Music]

  1. The tattoo artist is awesome, she is focusing on the painting instead of talking. The painter should work harder on her painting skill instead of talking too much.

  2. I feel like putting a tattoo artist and an abstract painter together painting a body, is not really fair haha ofc the tattooer is going to do better!!!

  3. I absolutely love how much fun Denise had! I would totally love to have a tattoo done by her! She’s great!

  4. The painter should not call herself an artist, shame on you from someone who can actually paint and draw.

  5. Next time take some real painter – not one who works ‘on and off and do only abstract’ – I’m sorry but I consider myself a professional painter and I do this since I remember, professional since 14 years and from my experience people who only do abstract very often fail in basic like anatomy and creativity. In past artist need have basic like anatomy realistic painting or perfect level and then they go for abstract art…. nowadays person who just hold the brush shout “I’m an artist….”

  6. I am really sorry, but I am 15 i Do Bodypainting since like… One or two years and i can Do much better then the Painter.

  7. Dude… The tattoo artist literally created an entire SCENE. Now we know who the REAL artist is.

    Like she didn't even do remotely ANYTHING abstract. It was literal rolling my eyes into the next dimension

  8. 2:43
    The way she just casually licks paint like it was sweets and shrugged like there wasn't enough sugar!!!
    Hahahhahahahaa lol

  9. Bruh….if I were the artist I would draw a lady with glowing eyes and hair flowing in the wind….maybe she can be a witch or something….but something this simple in the vid 🤔 doesn't right……I draw myself (digitally but my style is semi realism) like buzzfeed you good?

  10. It's not fair to judge an artist ability with this one video.. yes, the tattoo artist is amazing and basically slay the whole thing. But you guys shud cut the painter some slack, go see her art account. Her artwork are beautiful and amazing!!

  11. I mean a tattoo artist is basically a painter that also possesses technical skills to etch the paintings into human skin…

  12. The tattoo artist did it so good that she let the painter quit her love for art again and hopes she will love it again on and off for another 10 years. 🤭

  13. So a passionate tattoo artist 8 years consistently, and a glorified arts and crafts house wife who occasionally dabbles with painting over 10 years, seems like a fair contest…

  14. I saw abstarct painters like children playing with paints
    Annnnd i saw her Instagram, yep, painter like YouTube vidéo with liquide and canvas to do space… " painters" "PAINTERS"
    LOL

  15. The Tattoo artist was amazing, she has some made skills, I'm really sorry but the other lady was, let's say…. not even in the same post code.

  16. She's an abstract painter my arse!
    Her so-called "painting" is of junior high level (not to say kindergarden or primary school)!
    And the fact that the canvas is human skin and its surphace has curves doesn't excuse her poor attempt with the brush other than displaying an obvious lack of talent…
    But hey I guess nowadays everyone is an "artist" just as long as they can differenciate the pallet of colours and the mere splashing of random patterns is called "art"…
    God how I miss the old school great master painters!
    STILL I prefer the work of the tattoo artist anyday since we can't have another Caravaggio!
    Why do I even watch this kind of videos?
    Why do I torture myself?
    I am going to listen to Mozart's Lacrimosa now!

  17. When she said "abstract with oil paint", I knew she would be murdered. No offense but I do abstract too, but body paint…

  18. If I was the painter I would have wrote *Wingardiamlivosa or *Crucio and painted it in a fancy script with some color background flowing with the words coming out of a wand. BOOM, I'm not even an artist.

  19. I’m so confused how is she a painter and did something that I can do , and trust me I’m no painter at all, cool idea but bad interpretation

  20. When shen said that she was doing an abstract and not worry about lines and details, I was sure the tatoo artist had won already.

  21. I can't 😂 are you fr? A magic wand? She can expand her imagination more damn Why is this in my recommendation

  22. See this is why I personally dislike abstract shiz and even in art classes they force people to be more "abstract" and it makes me mad like- how abt i develope some ACTUAL SKILLS and THEN I can explore different types sigh
    if theres one person whos abstract work i like is flora yuknovich check her insta!

  23. 10 years painting and the first thing that came to her creative mind when magic is mentioned was a wand

  24. I thought the painter was mixing colours on the bottom of her arm, like the whole time I was waiting for her to start… then the time was up and I was like… OHHHH… OKAY… totally abstract… definitely blown away 🙂

  25. WAIT I JUST HAVE TO POINT OUT! 2:47 LMFAO. The girl on the left just tasted her brush omfg and was like "meh."

  26. honestly they did the painter dirty because she said she had never worked with body paints before and she also said she works with oil paints;
    those are two completely different mediums by a long shot.

    And also creativity doesn't come with a snap of the fingers, it takes time to figure out a good idea for some people

  27. The theme should be more detailed… its not fair to compare abstract with pictures (but the painters one… sry……… im not saying anything)

  28. This is not fair, because the tattoo artist is used to draw on skin and also the theme is something that she usually does. I don’t think this was a good way to compare their work.

  29. its so nice at the start when the tattoo artist have the lower voice and then they reveal the theme and her pitch goes up with the smile in her face it was just precious

  30. Not to be mean, but didn't the painter said she had 10 years of experience? How come you only be able to paint a magic wand with sparkles and in a very reduced area of the arm?

  31. Y’all should check out the painters Instagram , she actually paints really good and she does abstract stuff .

  32. Okay but to be fair the painter normally works with oil paints which dont function like body paint at all and she didnt know what to do with them
    AND the tattoo artist is a professional, and while the painter "professionally sells her art" on etsy. That doesnt really make her a professional shes more of a hobbyist so I felt like that wasnt really fair to her at all
