Body painting is when someone creatively paints their own or someone else’s body. The body is usually naked with nipples covered. This leads people to be shocked when they see this content on Twitch.
In this article we are going to take a look at if body painting is actually allowed on Twitch and what rules need to be followed if you are doing it. Let’s jump in and find out if you are allowed to body paint on Twitch.
Is Body Painting Allowed On Twitch?
Yes, body painting is allowed on Twitch but there are certain rules that must be followed if you want to avoid a ban. In the Twitch Terms of Service they state that:
“full chest coverage is not required, but those who present as women must completely cover their nipples & areola with a layer of non-transparent clothing or a paint & latex combination (artist-grade pasties, tape, latex or similar alternatives are acceptable). This coverage must be applied before streaming begins, not on-stream. Buttocks and genitals must also be fully covered by opaque attire. This exception to the general coverage requirements only applies while the streamer is actively engaged in body painting, though the streamer may take short breaks between active painting sessions, or when painting is complete to model the results”
The main rules are:
- Cover nipples and areola with non-transparent paint or clothing
- Apply these coverings before starting the stream
Do Streamers Get Banned For Body Painting?
While body painting is allowed on Twitch there are instances of people getting banned for body painting, including perma bans. The most controversial ban was ‘DelightDaniTV’. She was permabanned on Twitch even though she claims to have been following the terms of service. She hit out at Twitch on Twitter.

How To Prepare Your Body For A Body Painting Stream
When it comes to streaming body painting you want to make sure that you are prepared before going live.
When are ready to go live make sure that you have applied your pasties to your body and covered them with paint or clothing. Double to check to ensure that no nipple or areola is showing as this could result in a ban.
You should never apply these items during your stream. It should always be done before going live.
How To Prep Your Skin For Body Painting
The best way to prepare your skin for body painting is to exfoliate and moisturize before hand. You should use a light lotion rather than a thick cream. This will help to smooth out any dry patches but won’t make your skin so oily that the paint doesn’t stick. If you use a lotion that is too oily the paint will have a hard time staying in place.
