Bodily bumps of all kinds will be getting an artistic transformation thanks to a special charity event.

Professional face and body painter Tinks Faces will be painting baps, pregnant bumps, beer bellies and bald heads at a fun event as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The ‘Get Your Baps n Bellies Out For Breast Cancer’ event takes place on Wednesday, October 26 from 10am to 4pm at The Barn, Hemlington Lake in partnership with the Linx Youth Project.

Sam Willoughby, a trained body painter from Tinks Faces who also works at Hemlington Lake and Recreation Centre, will be doing the painting.

Sam said getting body bumps of all kinds painted is becoming increasingly popular and can look very effective.

“Pregnant ladies like to have their bumps painted with flowers, butterflies, rainbows, hearts, teddy bears and smiley faces,” said Sam.

“It’s a lot of fun and completely harmless to the baby.”

Breasts and bumps will be painted in private at the event.

People will be asked to make a donation to have their body part painted with money raised going to Breast Cancer Awareness.
