I would like to detect specific body parts in still images (not faces or eyes but uncommon ones such as bellybuttons and intimate organs). I have found Haar classifiers for faces, eyes, ears, mouths, noses and hands etc. What about the other body parts, are there any libraries with such classifiers (Haar or other)?

Thank you

I think you can't find them,but you can train any thing you want with sample images of that.

Thank you. That's indeed an option but it would require me to build a database of thousands of cropped images of butts & co, which would be very tedious... I'd like to avoid that :)
