Body = Canvas
tribal members used to hang stuff in their earlobes to make them droop. now i'm seeing people doing that in the u.s.
and they made dyes and decorated their bodies.
true, not many (?) will see the results of this artistic endeavor, but many artists do it for the enjoyment of creating, not for the appreciation of others.
does yer friend have an inferiority complex? who gives a fuck.
like the line from Matrix 3:
"Because we CHOOSE to"
