New Zealander Yolanda Bartram’s steampunk-inspired body painting has tied for first place in the “Special Effects Bodypainting” category at the 2010 World Bodypainting Festival in the Austrian city of Seeboden.

Inspired by a train journey through India, the foam and latex-enhanced body art features a steam engine, veil and a background of subcontinental azure.

The annual bodypainting festival attracted an estimated 30,000 visitors this year.
