10 Heinous Holiday-Themed Painted Baby Bumps


It’s the holiday season and pregnant ladies everywhere are celebrating the season of giving by applying body paint to their abdomens! Yup, snow globes, penguins, reindeer and snowmen are actually a thing that grown adults find appropriate to display on themselves!

I know I sound awfully Scrooge-like, but OMG. Please tell me it’s not just me who finds holiday-themed belly art horrifyingly tacky. I’m shocked I couldn’t find any nativity scenes or bellies painted with the lyrics of Christmas carols. I’d truly, truly love to see a pregnant woman’s abdomen adorned with the words to “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.” But until that illustrious day comes, both you and I will have to content ourselves with the 10 heinous painted scenes displayed here.

Pooh Bear Christmas Belly

Grown adults wearing Winnie The Pooh items is one of my biggest pet peeves. Painting them takes it to a new level. Photo: Face Painting Fun

    Ain’t nobody got time for that. Seriously.

    Ok, yes, that’s a bit obnoxious but it’s not nearly as bad as the Halloween trend of painting baby butts to look like pumpkins. Just overall though, I’m sick of everything having to be Pinterest-perfectly decorated and shared with the entire world. I guess I’m just lazy and cranky…

    • Kay_Sue

      That is not really a thing…who would do that?

    • Ife

      People with far too much time on their hands, I’d wager. It really is a thing,

      I like this better than the naked baby butts, to be honest. I always wonder how many times photographers get to clean up accidents when those pictures are taken. Don’t get me wrong, the pictures of mom or dad holding the little one in their hands where it LOOKS like the baby is naked is super cute, but I don’t need to see the crack.

    Why does the turkey have a mouth and a beak?

    I thought the snowman one was p cute though.

    In their defense… surviving the holidays without alcohol COULD lead to a momentary lapse in judgement. I say this 6 months pregnant. Not that I’d do it! Just that… I could see bad decisions being made (As I eat my 17th chocolate covered peanut butter ball for the day…)

  • Bethany Ramos

    I was big pregnant on the holidays two years ago, and these FREAK me out! The snowman one is kinda grossly awesome though.

    • TwentiSomething Mom

      I thought the same thing about the snowman. Its cool but still gross.

  • ALE515

    Most of these are good. I’ve seen worse. Much, much, mother of god why worse!

  • TrudyML

    Pass the eye bleach!

    I think I could totally rock the carrot out the belly button snowman…. I’m not pregnant but I am drinking whiskey.

  • BarlowGirl

    I’ve probably got a much larger stomach than many of these people due to body type.

    So does that mean I can paint my stomach up like a present or something???

  • Severed Cliche

    Did she really just have a carrot sticking out of her belly button? O.o
