The latest in Bump fashion!!


               Something is sweeping the nation for pregnant Mums........bump painting!!

I am sure everyone has heard of face painting, but the latest trend to come over from the US is bump painting! This new artistic fashion has derived from the old tradition of having body art painted on to signify a life changing experience, and there is nothing more life changing than having a baby!!

There are many intricate designs being placed on expectant mother's bumps and it is said to be a very relaxing experience for both Mother and baby, with babies reacting to the movement on their mothers tums! Many Mums are seeing this idea as an opportunity to have something to remember their pregnancy by, photographing their bump canvases as a momento for their impending bundles of joy.

I must say, I don't think I would ever have it done myself, as it seems strange using my belly as a canvas, but I do admit some of the designs I have seen are very clever and interesting. The paints used are safe for use when pregnant and would not harm the baby.

Some designs I have seen can be found by clicking the links below:
