The human body is a canvas, and as an undertaker, Harold considers himself an artist. His expertise is bringing the appearance of life back to the dead for their wakes. But when his ex-lovers start arriving in body bags, Harold believes he's receiving a message to create a new masterpiece.
Rutger and Kandi also make their art with flesh. The duo found fame in the golden age of pornography, releasing huge hits in the '80s and living extravagant lives. Now under the pressure of a new market, one that craves more vile and taboo movies, Rutger hires Kandi once again. This time the job is to create the most shocking porno imaginable. They even draw in two curious teenagers, Toby and Jessica, whose cabin vacation has landed them in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Attracted by all of these creations, a mysterious red dust surrounds these unique artists, bringing their worlds together.

What does a soon-to-be college student, his wild child girlfriend and a porn star have in common? Much more than you might imagine. Toby had just graduated from high school and was looking forward to a vacation. He and his girlfriend rented a secluded cabin. It's while they are exploring the area that their vacation takes a sharp left turn. Toby and Jessica may never be the same after this. This book takes horror and X-rated ideas to the highest level. Well written and deeply disturbing, this book is not for the faint of heart. The characters are well defined and unique. If you enjoy blood and guts movies, this book is for you. Even though I made the statements above, the book is hard to put down. I found no issues. I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 for the original ideas in the book. ~Copy of book provided by author and I voluntarily reviewed it.
“Body Art” by Kristopher Triana (Blood Bound Books) ISBN 978-1-940250-25-0 Mr Triana is good with words. He is a master of language. He is also possessed of a sense of humour as black as the ace of spades. At least I hope he is because if he isn’t he’s probably insane. But, whether he’s insane or not, if you’re into necrophilia, if you’re a blood lusting sadist with a hint of the masochist in you as well: if you’re into the darkest of underground porn with non stop sex and body mutilation, a wholesale mashing of organs and limbs all topped off with an evil supernatural force wracking general mayhem, you’re in for a feast of a read. Frankly these matters, the odd spot of hot sex apart, are not my ideal cup of tea. But yet, I read on. I couldn’t help it, God help me. I was dragged, fascinated, unresisting, like a sacrificial victim, to the high altar of death, carried by the wicked magic of Mr. Tirana’s pen, from a mortician’s crypt to an underground film set – or possibly a pantomime stage – based in the pit of hell: then, on at breath taking speed, to a grand Gothic conclusion with cleansing flames and two members of the plot, miraculously, in a bizarre alliance of male innocence and female experience, emerging from the fury bloodied but largely unscathed. “Body Art” by Kristopher Tirana (Blood Bound Books). If you’re a ghoul you’ll love every blood dripping orgasmic page. D. A. Barker. (Author of “What Am I?” & “Killing for Christmas.”
