    @Trevalius Guyus ... I was only stating getting tattoos and piercing's have nothing to do with plastic surgery or reconstruction ,,and they don't. I must admit I had not idea your art form required so much knowledge about the human body. That was informative., thank you.

    But, in all honesty, tattoos and piercings do alter a person's looks, just like plastic surgery and reconstruction does. Just like how some young men and women today like to have two to three different colors of hair on their head.

    People can't lie about having tattoos and piercings, but then again, right when a person thinks someone has had plastic surgery or whatever, what happens when that person truly hasn't had plastic surgery or whatever?

    @Cody Fousnaugh As far as I'm concerned, not telling the truth about something is better than possibly getting all of the backlash that could happen. IOW, some things most of the are simply better lied about or not told at all. Only my opinion.
    I was punished a bit harshly for lying as a child , which made me grow up to 'tell no lies' . People do not appreciate the Truth. People who know me will tell you- if you don't want the truth do not ask her.
    However I had to learn how to get a bit more tactful and careful thinking in the business world, before speaking. Lying always leads to problems in the end. There is no point in asking or lying about the Obvious.

    Ok, but what if, a person thinks is "the obvious", didn't really happen? I mean, what about a "thinking" a facelift happened, but in reality it didn't. There could definitely be ladies out there that appear to have a facelift or something else, but never did.

    I know what the thread is about, but, what if (two very big words) the person says "no, nothing done" and they are telling the absolute truth. Nothing was done. There are bad facelifts, that really tell the obvious..........yes, a facelift was done, but poorly. Then, there are those that had excellent facelift or plastic surgery done that is very hard to tell "did they or didn't they have it done?"

    Another way to look at this is..........some transgenders, men to women, look so much like a woman, it's extremely hard to tell that the person use to be a man. I've seen this before and was very, very shocked that it turned out that the woman used to be a man.

    I, too, have reasons I detest BS. I have known several people who have been what may be called "blunt" in my life. I can be that way, too. When folks get their feathers ruffled, I remind them that you can trust blunt people. I've dealt with it much of my career managing people. I just had one such situation recently.

    I've given a friend (Linda) rides to multiple doctors' appointments, and she's tried to spread the burden around. A mutual friend (Susan) was supposed to give her a ride to an appointment and then something else came up. Susan told her "Call John. He's never doing anything" just kinda matter-of-fact. Linda was offended on my behalf. I just laughed it off. I reminded Linda that of all the people in the world you never know where they stand, Susan is not one of them. What she lacks in tact she makes up for in honesty...and she's honest to a fault.

    We could go down another road, here, altogether, if I wanted to head into a general discussion on body modification which certainly DOES include tattooing, piercing, and plastic surgery for vanity's sake.

    Since this is not a forum for body mod folks, in general, I'll only say that there are clients in those three practices, as above, who only get work to attract the attention of others. A narcissistic personality, and all that entails, is easily identifiable by those who come in frequent contact with those who suffer from it.

    The only difference between those who get plastic surgery for vanity's sake, and those who get tattoos and piercings, is that the plastic surgery folks can lie about ever getting the work. With the other folks, it's pretty hard to deny getting the work, when the obvious is on display, for the gawking, hidden work notwithstanding.......

    I was watching who wants to be a millionaire show last evening and a very heavily tattooed lady in her 50’s came up for her turn and Eddy asked why did you decide to get a heap of large tattoos at 40 - 50 years old ?

    She stated it gave her confidence ….OK …the tattoos were very colourful and noticeable
    so how dose covering allot of your skin in ink give one confidence …it’s a question not a criticism.

    The shows compare calls it ink ✍️

    Well, I am of the opinion that not every question deserves an honest answer. Asking someone if they have had "work" done is, to me, an invasion of privacy. It is none of your business.

    I had to have some minor corrective surgery done to my eye lids a number of years ago, and it was considered cosmetic. But I never acknowledged it to any of my coworkers because it was none of their business

    I recall reading an article in the early 90s about plastic surgery recommendations actually coming up on job interviews...and this is not the entertainment field. "Gee, you're a perfect fit for the job. But that nose..." I have no idea what direction this "trend" eventually took. Can you imagine?

    I know how I would respond. "Yeh, I'm aware of my nose, but what's your opinion of my finger. THIS one!"

    Good grief, I hope that is Photoshopped. The idea of protuberances takes on a new meaning.

    It seems that @Trevalius Guyus likes her. I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or be afraid.

    She's endomorpherrific!!!
