The Craig Tracy Gallery

Okay first off, if you live in or around New Orleans and have never been to The Craig Tracy Gallery, SHAME ON YOU!  Seriously, get in your car, on the trolley, on your bike, and go to the French Quarter on Royal St. to check out this gallery.  Even if you don't even you don't ever go to galleries or aren't interested in galleries, do yourself a favor and GO!
The Craig Tracy Gallery is a gallery of Bodypainting, and is the only one in the U.S. This is one of the most unique, amazing galleries I have ever been to.  I make it a point to go anytime I am in downtown New Orleans.  Some days you'll even catch Tracy in the studio, he is a very cool, down-to-earth guy.  If he's not there, his brother probably will be, he is super helpful, informative, and funny.

I actually even own two of his pieces.  They are fantastic conversation starters and most people are surprised they are painted on actual bodies.  I love them, and hope to own more in the future.

 So even if your not in New Orleans, you should make a trip out there just to see this gallery.  I promise, you won't be disappointed!
