The Naked Truth: Skinstriping in the July/August 2012 Issue of Airbrush Action Magazine

Share Article

80+ Pages of Cutting-Edge Airbrush Art, Pinstriping, New Products, and More.

Kim shows off his considerable skills as an artist by “conquering the curviest and most dangerous frontiers of pinstriping, the female body.”

In the July-August 2012 issue of Airbrush Action magazine pinstriping master Mitch Kim is interviewed.

Proving that “nothing is unstripable,” Kim shows off his considerable skills as an artist by “conquering the curviest and most dangerous frontiers of pinstriping, the female body.” Kim is an Oregon-based artist with four decades of “fine and steady” pinstriping experience—so “who better to bring the art of pinstriping to a novel next level?”

Seeking to find a smart balance between work and play, Kim said he “just wanted it to be about pinstriping and not the girl … but a naked female body always takes precedence, always.” A pleasing and provocative photo spread completes the story.

“We’ve coined it ‘skinstriping,’ and I believe it will gain traction as a new trend in the art world,” explained Airbrush Action’s publisher, Cliff Stieglitz. “From a creative and professional standpoint Mitch is the right guy to lead the way. The feedback from our readers has been overwhelming, with many expressing interest in trying it themselves."
