    Body art doesn’t mean tattoos at Naked Canvas. It means artists painting on model’s bodies.

    At this fourth annual body painting competition, which is held Thursday as part of the Hygienic festivities, the artists have four hours to paint their models. Then, the models take to the runway in the Crocker House Ballroom to display the creative results.

    Organizers note that this event sells out and advise fans to arrive early.

    Naked Canvas, 8-11 p.m. Thursday, Crocker House Ballroom, 35 Union St., New London; advance tickets $25, $30 at the door; www.hygienic.org.
