Steampunk is a subgenre that incorporates a style of design and fashion combining historical elements of the 19th-century with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction.
In Luxembourg you can join one of the most huge Steampunk events: Anno 1900 - Steampunk Convention Luxembourg. Lynn Schockmel got invited to this beautiful event since their first launching in 2011 to create Steampunk inspired body paints in front of the public.
Below you can see all art works from the most recent to the very first body paint I've done during this amazing event:

Brave women and men also members of the association ALPADOC decided recently to get painted by Lynn Schockmel to express their pain and emotions thru Art.
At the "Gibraltar Face & Bodypainting Festival", organized April 19 2015 by Hamish Dalmedo, Lynn Schockmel who is bodypainting artist based in Luxembourg, beat the competition with her colorful interpretation of the theme "Beyond the seas". The theme of her design was inspired by mythical sea creatures. She also won the poster competition of this festival.

In Luxembourg the Halloween tradition and celebration is becoming increasingly popular in the last few years. The costumes and makeups are usually modeled after supernatural figures such as vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils.
Halloween is always a very busy and successful day for Lynn Schockmel. Each year she enjoys creating zombies, creatures and all that ugly stuff. Her makeup booth is installed at the bar "Rock Box" where she paints each stuff member of the COM1 group bars in the Rives de Clausen. Here is a selection of some creations:
September 28, 2014 the huge Anno 1900 - Steampunk Convention Luxembourg in Fond de Gras (Differdange) took place again and attracted many people dedicated to steampunk and those who admire this amazing world.

Lynn Schockmel did commercial Bodypaintings on a female and male model for JIMS Fitness Center in Beggen. Afterwards the models were walking in their painted promotional clothes in the streets of Luxembourg City to distribute flyers of the fitness center. It's an interesting social experience to observe the reactions of the people walking by. Some people don't notice the models being painted, some are surprised and look closer and others are impressed or even shocked.
Two new articles about Lynn's work at the World Bodypainting Festival 2014 were published in the most-read Luxembourg newspapers: LUXEMBURGER WORT and L'ESSENTIEL. You can also read all other publications about her art HERE.

We are organising a Bodypainting workshop in Luxembourg 17.11.2013 with a world champion from Los Angeles: Lymari Millot. Follow this link to know more about this unique opportunity to learn how to paint bodies from a professional artist: Workshop by Lymari Millot or the Event on Facebook.
Here some examples of her brillant work:
All bodypainting artists over the whole world are getting harmed by one person (or a group of persons) who are reporting all their pictures. Facebook never replies to this issue. They are not getting suspicious that right now over 150 profiles and pages on Facebook got blocked or banned including the World Bodypainting Championship page and World Champions like Scott Fray, Matteo Arfanotti and many more. Somebody wants to remove bodypainters from Facebook and harm their business. Many artists do this for a living and need Facebook for their advertisements. Some of the biggest Lingerie-companies show much more skin and erotic poses on their pictures, why are they allowed and Art is not? Something is going wrong! Please support Body Artists and let them know if you have any information that could help to end this attack.
