Makeup artists are getting ready for Halloween by practicing some outrageous pumpkin body art - on people’s butts.

Photos of butts dressed up like glittery pumpkins have been appearing on Instagram - and they’re calling it the “bumpkin.” GoGetGlitter posted a snap of a bumpkin, where a bottom is painted orange and smothered with glitter, captioned: “TWERK OR TREAT.” People were not sure what to think of the cheeky design, as someone commented: “whatta nightmare you’d find glitter in your undies for ages.” Some people seemed to want to try their hand at the bumpkin, tagging their pals and writing “let’s do it” and “Halloween sorted.”

If you’re thinking of recreating the bizarre look at home, there are a few potential issues with the bumpkin. Firstly, it would be very difficult to put such intricate makeup on your own rump, so you’d have to get a friend to paint your butt. Secondly, sitting down might be a bit of a problem after having it done. You’d also certainly turn some heads if you went out trick or treating like that.
