Just make sure you're not allergic to latex if using latex paint.  You can go into toxic shock.

Too bad you are on the wrong coast! There are NYC bodypainters, but they may be harder to find because many of them are busy. Feel free to advertise your availability on my Yahoo group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bodypaintart/ . There are many members who are painters.

When looking for a bodypainter you should check for a couple things.

Are they using makeup or paint? (Your skin is your living so makeup only!)
Are they insured? (If they are serious, they are insured)
DO they have references?

It should be fairly easy for a pretty lady like yourself to find someone wanting a human canvas.

Oh and as far as pay...expect anything from TFP to $5000. It varies alot with the experience and business of the painter.
Best of luck,
Rich

Danielle from Body of Art is quite good, but I have no idea about her rates and/or availability.  Still, someone you could look into.

There is a reason I don't use liquid latex. It is tricky sticky stuff, and potential allergies can be life threatening. It's almost impossible to get detail with and even manufacturers I know have a hard time getting decent pics.

That being said, there are some good pics in circulation, but hard to find.

Here's an example ... I've used liquid latex several times, but I'm not allergic.  It's tough to be precise with it, but if you do something fun a la Jackson Pollock, it can be a hoot.  Make sure you have plenty of ventilation and if you get it on clothing, it ain't coming off.

Liquid Latex shot.
