ok I've got one for you!
I was just watching one of the many documentaries that have been on ABC lately, about extreme body modifications and excessive tattoos, has anyone else been watching these? What do you think?
Is it a form of body dysmorphic disorder? When they talk about it like an addiction or compulsion or that they literally "can't stop themselves from getting another tattoo/piercing/plastic surgery", it does sound rather like they have a psychological disorder.
One guy seemed quite upset and even surprised that he was having trouble getting a job which I thought was a big silly, if your entire face is covered in tattoos of course people are going to be a bit wary and be reluctant to hire you. Or am I being totally discriminatory to think that?
There was another guy (maybe the same one?) who got his full body done years after being married and having children, his loyal wife was not happy...
Of course people should be free to do whatever the hell they want to their own bodies, but where's the line? Is there a line?
