Pregnancy Belly Paintings: How To?

There are several ways you can have a pregnancy belly painting created into a work of art just for you! If you know someone with art skills, you can purchase an easy to use belly painting kit online. It’s so important to use paint that is intended for skin now more than ever since you’re pregnant! You can also use other paints that are designed for skin and are water based. (Stay away from the acrylics!)

If you are lucky, you may be able to find someone locally to paint your belly. I would start first with local artists who do face painting. I’m sure you remember seeing the kids walking around with the amazing full face designs, imagine what they can do painting your belly! I have also seen an occasional photographer who offers this service as a photo shoot. Painted bellies do make for a fun maternity photo shoot!

    These are all so adorable! My sister in law had this done when she was pregnant with my twin nieces. The artist painted an ultrasound showing the twins. It was amazing like all of these!

    1. Hi Liz,
      It only takes about one and a half hour, and believe me most of the moms have trouble sitting still and most of the baby’s start kicking somewhete along the time. I’m a bellypainter for 6 years now and its the best job in the world :)

  2. Haha, aww the last design was so adorable! I never got my belly painted when I was pregnant, but my sister is pregnant now. I’m totally sharing this with her. :)

    1. This was a momma from Holland and a pappa from USA who thought of this design hence the hearts on the different places in the world and the bird flying in the middle

  3. There are so many fun and creative ways to celebrate a couple’s pregnancy these days. Painting on your bulging pregnancy belly was unheard of back in the 80’s when my children we born!

    1. Hi Kat,
      painting on skin is as old as people :) It started with clay, In the 70’s it was pretty big among hippies but now it is so popular again! But in your pregnant time you had probably the funkiest hairdo :)

    1. Hi Andrea,
      It was actually painted on a very crowded babyshower :) But ofcourse you can choose however you like to have a bellypainting. If you like more inspiration check http://www.bollepret.nl

      Best regards Anouk
