Earlier this week EDM DJ and producer Kaskade posted a photo on Facebook from the Miami stop of his recent tour. In it, a pretty blonde pays homage to the show -- called Freaks of Nature -- showing off a detailed body paint job. It's provacative, yes, but not much different than those Sports Illustrated swimsuit body paint pictures you can find at any drug store. (Full photo below.)

"This girl just 1 up'd EVERYONE!!!" Kaskade wrote in the caption. It drew some 13,000 likes. Quickly, however, he had some bad news: Facebook removed the photo.

Earlier this year, Gawker published a leaked document detailing Facebook's photo censoring policies. On this banned list were breastfeeding pictures "showing other nudity, or nipple clearly exposed," as well as photos of "naked private parts," "female nipple bulges and naked butt cracks."

In the past, Facebook has deleted a photo of a chaste gay kiss, a nude drawing and photos of women breastfeeding, sending gay rights activists, various segments of the art world and "lactivists" into tizzies. Facebook is much more strict on sex than violence, it should be noted. Reads the policy: "Crushed heads, limbs etc are OK as long as no insides are showing."

Turns out "art nudity" -- excluding digital or cartoon nudity -- gets a pass; the deleted drawing had "fooled" the moderators, a company representative said to The New York Times.

Though Kaskade's girl's butterfly pacifier is a nice touch, her photo could probably not be considered art. (No disrespect to her airbrusher.) Still, no nipples are visible. So what's the dealio?
