In New York City, art comes in many shapes and sizes. You can catch some beautiful mosaics in subway stations, an installation that changes with the value of gold or even appreciate the madness that are Black Taps milkshakes.

But, if there was event that truly embodies what NYC art really can be, it's this event that will make you question what is NSFW.

Last Saturday over a hundred people took part in the third annual NYC Bodypainting Day at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza.

The event was created by artist Andy Golub after he was arrested in Times Square for painting a male and female model who were wearing nothing but thongs. 

Golub soon learned that it was legal for him to paint nude models and then started this event to celebrate people.

Last years theme was, "Body Acceptance" and this years was "Inner Beauty." 

Models of all shapes and sizes came out to be painted on by many different kinds of artists, all vying to carry on Golub's message of connecting people.

Check out some of the living pieces of art below.
