Weston Museum gave people the chance to try a different look when it hosted a body art festival on Saturday.

The event coincided with its facial hair and tattoos exhibition, which explores different styles through the decades.

Production art students from Weston College decided to use people as their canvas, creating colourful designs on their models.

Adults and children alike had their faces painted, while people also received some henna tattoos and tried special effects make-up.

Youngsters were also able to dress up and take part in a tattoo-designing competition.

The Pixie Project used body jewels to give people sparkly and colourful new looks.

Museum visitor services manager Matthew Hardy said: “Despite the bank holiday weather actually paying off for once, we still got a really decent number of visitors through the door.”

The tattoo and facial hair exhibition will be closing on Sunday to make way for a new temporary exhibition.
