You go first!
I once saw a picture of a woman who had a masectomy. She had a GORGEOUS tatoo of blue flowers all down her scar, wrapping around her back. It was breathtaking. Really, really lovely.
People who go to such trouble to "modify" their appearance (who am I kidding? They didn't modify their appearance...they blew it up and started from scratch!!!!) are generally people who dislike themselves so much that they don't want anyone to know how deep it goes. So they do this kind of stuff for two reasons: To separate themselves from what they don't like about themselves. To tell all the people of the world that they think can't like them, "So what! I don't need you anyway!"
People who do this generally don't believe anyone would notice them if they didn't do this...and when people do notice them, they don't want them to really see them. Because then "they" might notice what they are hoping to hide. It's so complex...
