    Do you consider fashion design, body painting (tattoos making, henna, nail art)  form of pure art?

    In many books fashion designing is taken more like a craft than a pure art.

    I can only speak to tattoos and for that matter henna since I have two tattoos myself and yes they are a pure form of art.  I chose to have my body decorated with the images I have on me because they hold a deep meaning for me--it doesn't matter what others think of them or what they mean to anyone else, they inspire me, bring me hope, and remind me of who I am as an individual.  To me, that's the purest form art can reach.

    I think those are all forms of pure art to the person that's making or enjoying them. Art is a perception based experience. If you think whatever you're indulging in is considered the purest form of art, then it is.

    This question reminds me of a similar debate--is rap poetry?  My answer to both of these questions is yes!  Anything can be art; if turning a urinal upside-down is art, then body art is definitely art as well.  I think that body art requires a certain level of skill and natural talent, just like other art forms.

    100% (my answer may be "too short" but there's not much more to say - I guess that's plain to see.)

    My personal opinion is yes, I consider It as a form of pure art. You can do art in almost every place, It must not be in a canvas to be cosidered art, people do amazing paintings in the body, or in hair for example. My personal art
