Some years back, Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue ran a spread with models wearing only body paint. In years since, it's become a regular feature. And of course, someone has to actually apply the paint.

You ever wonder how exactly somebody nets that assignment? :lol:

What are some other jobs you look at and ask that same question?

What are your theories - real or fanciful - on the process?

not quite answering your question, but I read an article about a guy who pretended to be gay and got a spot on the cleaning crew of the SI body painting thing. He just swept floors, etc. The girls and the staff were suspicious of everyone (well, every guy) working there. He said if he looked around for even a second the models would instantly look over with laser beam eyes and he'd have to either look back down quickly and keep sweeping or say something innocent (or flamboyant lol). It was very difficult to stay in there and keep his eyes elsewhere. I'd take that challenge tho :D

In my experience success equates to several things.

Right place / Right time
Grabbing an opportunity when it is there.
and most of all
Hard work and Dedication

When all three things line up you can be the guy with "That job"

my buddy and the owner of the shop (their both tattoo artists) go to Florida every year around October to do body painting, they don't get to do anything for any magazines, but they have painted plenty of hotties though...

How do you demonstrate hard work and dedication to body painting models?

So... they're getting naked to get painted, to get photographed, to get placed in a magazine for millions of guys to drool at, but they're suspicious of guys on set.

lol

I'm impressed that this thread has lasted more than six hours and Zod has yet to interject about how enviable and amazing his job is, photographing beautiful women and all.

One from the flip side...

When Michael Jackson was on trial, the prosecution asked to have his underrwear tested for...um...yeah.

So there was a guy - low level staffer, probably - who was assigned to go through Jackson's underwear drawer looking for 'trace evidence'.

What he brought back was given to another guy whose job it was to test it, extensively.





Next time you think your job sucks... :unsure:
