Nix Herrera started body painting in Orlando, Florida at the age of 19. His love of competition and artistic talent drove him to become an award winning body painter. Ever the perfectionist, Nix has constantly challenged himself to grow as an artist.
After 15 years of experience, Nix’s dedication for body painting led him to Syfy’s new show Naked Vegas. His expertise and problem-solving skills made him an essential asset to the body painting team. Nix was also a competitor on season two of Face Off where he competed in developing, sculpting, and applying special effects makeup.
Nix's portfolio includes work with Playboy, Rolling Stone, Make-Up Artist Magazine, the JabbaWockeeZ, Penn and Teller, Nokia, Universal Studios, Ocean Park Hong Kong, Cirque USA, and many more.
