A professional body-painter and her model have revealed some of the ‘creepy’ and ‘disturbing’ unsolicited messages they receive on social media.
American Jen the Body Painter, aka Jen Seidel, has made a name for herself on YouTube and Instagram with her incredibly lifelike outfits made entirely from paint.
It’s hard to believe that the painted models are actually naked and the only ‘real’ cover they are wearing is a thong and nipple pasties.
Jen has been posting videos of a variety of stunts where ‘painted people’ have tricked strangers into thinking they are actually fully clothed.

But now, she and model Marissa have taken to YouTube to talk about some of the ‘creepy’, ‘cringey’ and ‘weird’ responses their work provokes from fans.
In the video, Marissa dons her own painted top.
Jen, who has over 52,000 subscribers said: "I get a lot of messages but I don’t pay attention to them, especially the ones that don’t make sense.
"I guess they just think that eventually they will get lucky and I will say hi back."
But her lack of response hasn’t stopped some determined people from badgering her with odd requests and uncomfortable comments.
In one message a man asked: "How much would it be to get my d*** painted like a rocket?"
Responding to the comment a disgusted Jen said "Ew, like a million dollars, two million even."
Another message from an unnamed man to Jen called her his "favourite J*W" – a comment Jen said made her feel "attacked just from reading it".
Model Marissa, who shares her work with Jen on her Instagram, shared more DMs, including one from a "Damsel in distress’ artist.
It read: "Hello I would love to do some damsel in distress bondage art of you" alongside creepy drawings of girls tied up by the artist.
"I’m sure there’s a drawing of me floating out there" a concerned Marissa said.
"What does he do with the drawings?" she asked.

She also recalled another disturbing experience when going to buy beer at a nearby shop.
Afterwards, she apparently got a direct message on social media that said: "Hi, my boss is making me do this. I helped you out in the store today.
"Have to say you’re the most beautiful girl I have ever seen."
Marissa said: "He must have memorised my licence and found me."
According to Jen, she receives multiple long and rambling messages every day.
One that was seven pages long read: "I carried you with me in my dreams even closer than normal last night and now I’m pointing my happiness to you.
"You look healthier in each new photo.
"I wake at this moment thick and breathing deep.
Jen said: "This message is making me really uncomfortable and I’m starting to get a stomach ache.
"Does he really think I’m going to respond? I really feel like he needs a therapist."
Since the video ‘Reacting to cringy DMs’ has got over 3,000 views since it was posted on Saturday.
