Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people with team colours on the face: 29,688 - established at the Stade de France in Paris, France.
The previous Guinness world record for the most bodies painted was 264 and was achieved by the American Body Arts Festival at Brushwood Folklore Centre in Sherman, New York, USA.
The Cork Body Painting Group beat a five-year Guinness world record, which was previously set in the US when 264 people were covered in body paint.
The record-breakers had to remove all their clothes except their underwear, before paint was applied to every exposed part of their bodies with the exception of the soles of ther feet.
The mammoth five-hour effort at the Camden Palace Hotel also included a team of 150 artists who meticulously applied paint to each of the 317 participants.
