Some tattoos can be beautiful, and I do like a well placed tattoo on a lady, but I don't understand people who have facial tattoos.
Body piercing is another craze that's nice if done well, but I shudder when I see people who have those huge hoops stretching their earlobes.
I once spoke to a colleague in another office about her piercings, she had a couple of dozen at the time, so I innocently asked her to list them all, she's got to 19 when she reach her navel, so I asked her to stop there.
Body modification is the extreme end of this activity, and here we encounter some real nutters who engage in scarification, branding and inserting balls under their skin. I've even seen a girl who'd implanted horns under her scalp. Weird doesn't even start to cover it...
