  • Botox Battle: Jennifer Aniston v Courteney Cox

    Former Friends stars are friends in real life—or at least they were until a recent dispute about anti aging philosophies. While Jennifer Aniston has become a poster child for the benefits of drinking water and using skincare products to help fight sun damage and signs of aging, Courteney Cox has opted to go for the unnatural look and become a veritable poster child for the plastic surgery industry.

    In an interview with People magazine, Jennifer was asked whether she would prefer Botox or wrinkles, to which she responded, “Wrinkles.”

    “Nobody wants wrinkles, but Botox looks terrible,” she said.

     

    The 45-year old star of We’re the Millers has admitted to trying Botox in the past, but said she didn’t like the effects. On the other hand, Courteney Cox has expressed nothing but love for the dermal injectable known to banish wrinkles calling the product nothing short of “fantastic.”

     

    After Jennifer’s comments about Botox went public, Courteney apparently became angry, according to a source for The National Enquirer.

     

    “Courteney is furious at Jen for taking a backhanded slap at her appearance,” said an insider close to both actresses.

    “When Courteney called Jen on her nasty dig, Jen fired back that Courteney should act her age and stop trying so hard to impress her young boyfriend.

    “Jen told Courteney that women who don’t allow themselves to age naturally and gracefully are pathetic.”

    Courteney will be turning 50 this summer and is dating much younger 37-year-old Irish rocker Johnny McDaid, which has apparently increased her desire for eternally youthful looks.

     

    “Since Johnny came on the scene, Courteney is even more paranoid about looking her age,” a longtime pal told The Enquirer. “She’s constantly searching for the latest treatments to keep looking young.”

     

    “and it’s a shame. In the past, she prided herself on having ‘stealth’ treatments and regular freshen-ups that weren’t obvious.”

    “But now Courteney has gotten rid of all the character lines that she had in her 30s. Her skin has been lasered to the point that it doesn’t even look real.”

     

    By contrast, Jennifer is engaged to younger Justin Theroux but emphasizes knowing what is in skincare products thanks to her new role as spokesperson for Aveeno.

     

    Jen told E! News, “I always like to read labels so I know what’s going into our food and what’s going into our bodies. I thought it was really fun to see what’s going into our skin.”

     

    She also emphasizes exercise as an important part of feeling good, in addition to looking great.

     

    “It’s not about bikini season,” she told People magazine about her fitness routine. “It’s about being healthy. Of course we want to have toned skin and legs and muscles and all that, but it’s really just about feeling great.”

     

    Despite their current disagreement, the source tells the National Enquirer that it likely won’t be the end of the friendship.

     

    “They’re both sore right now,” the insider added. “But knowing Jen and Courteney’s tempestuous history, they’ll kiss and make up eventually.”

    Beyonce & Kim Kardashian Meeting Up for Plastic Surgery?

    Beyonce and Kim Kardashian seem like an unlikely duo but the ladies are attached to men who are BFFs so more and more often they are spotted together at everything from special events and fashion shows to dinners out with their partners. Recently, the ladies met up at a dermatology clinic, probably for some luxury treatments or non invasive plastic surgery.

    The Daily Mail reports that ahead of her surprise Coachella appearance, Beyonce ran into Kim Kardashian at the Lancer Dermatology on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. According to the tabloid, the Lancer Clinic provides luxurious skincare treatments including laser treatments, chemical peels and facials.

    Both Beyonce and Kim are well known for taking care of themselves with plastic surgery. 33-year old Beyonce is a pop star and changes up her hairstyle frequently but often there are rumors that her change in hairstyle is to hide a recent plastic surgery, including more than one nose job.

     

    Many suspect that Beyonce has had more than one nose job since her girl band Destiny’s Child, disbanded years ago. In fact, some believe that Beyonce has had as many as three nose jobs over the years, including one as recently as last year.

     

    Beyonce does look different than she used to and likely has had a nose job because her nose looks much narrower and has a more defined tip. Other changes in her appearance could be the result of different ways of wearing her makeup and just her different hairstyles that make her look earthy or glamorous with a veritable magic wand.

     

    For her part, Kim Kardashian has also changed since she first became a household name. While Beyonce’s changes were subtle, Kim has mainly left her hair alone, instead trying out plastic surgery treatments that have left her with a frozen face.

     

    Kim is frequently spotted at dermatology clinics, undergoing everything from laser hair removal to laser treatments to battle cellulite, stretchmarks and any other perceived flaw. Although she has admitted to trying Botox in the past, she says that she had a bad reaction to it, but given her immobile expression and wrinkle free brow, it seems likely that Kim not only routinely gets Botox injections, she gets injections on a regular basis. And while Kim has spoken about her desire for a nose job, many fans think that she has had one as her nose looks to be tinier than it used to. Kim probably also gets lip and cheek injections with a filler like Juvederm as her lips look stuck in a permanent kissy face.

     

    It’s unclear who recommended the clinic to whom and what procedures the ladies had done, but maybe they both needed a chemical peel or laser treatment ahead of Kim’s nuptials to Kanye, which are set to take place in France in just a couple of months. It is said that while Beyonce will attend as a courtesy to her husband Jay-Z, she has no desire to be filmed for the Kardashian family reality show.

    Amanda Seyfried Holding Off on Plastic Surgery

    Amanda Seyfried has such luminous clear skin that it seems to radiate through the screen. And while Amanda is jumping on the Botox bandwagon any time soon, it seems that she is against plastic surgery, just isn’t planning on having any right now. Instead she has a slew of beauty secrets that she recently shared with Marie Claire magazine’s UK edition.

    28-year old Amanda Seyfried looks so glamorous at all times that it’s hard to imagine that the star of television and film would consider going under the knife. Yet she reveals in a recent interview with Marie Claire UK that while she has already noticed some signs of aging, she is holding off on getting plastic surgery—including Botox until she is a bit older.

    “I have my fair share of wrinkles, but I won’t have Botox until I’m at least 40,” she says.

     

    In the meantime, she follows a skincare regimen and makes sure to wear sunscreen every day to prevent more wrinkles from forming.

     

    “I just try to take care of my skin by cleansing, using a high-tech moisturizer like Clé de Peau Nourishing Emulsion, and wearing an SPF every day.”

     

    She also shared that while she is careful about taking care of her skin, she is a little more lax when it comes to her hair. Apparently the secret to her shiny blonde locks is a less is more philosophy when it comes to washing and styling.

     

    “I don’t wash my hair very often, so dry shampoo is my saviour,” Amanda told the May issue of British magazine Marie Claire. “I love Kevin Murphy’s Fresh Hair, although you have to be careful with dry shampoos that they don’t give you dandruff.”

     

    “I never style my hair – I prefer it when it’s been naturally air dried, as it goes soft and wavy-straight, which is my ideal look,” she added.

     

    And while Amanda keeps her makeup to a minimum, she says that red lipstick is how she perks herself up for a hit of glam.

     

    “Red lips give a fail-safe injection of glamour,” she said. “I’m usually too lazy to put on lipstick properly, but I noticed the other night, after I outlined my lips and spent time blotting and reapplying, it actually stayed on throughout dinner.”

    Amanda’s new plastic surgery revelation follows what she has said in the past about going under the knife. Although she is one of Hollywood’s stunners, she says that she still has some insecurities about her looks and that while she has thought about plastic surgery to fix her flaws, she has yet to take the plunge.

     

    “I’ve considered a lot of things – like I want to have a nose job and fix my skin, but I just think that maybe at some point people would go too far,” she said. “I’ll age gracefully for now. I’m only 25.”

     

    Because Amanda has grown up on camera, she has already been subject to plastic surgery rumors, including a jaw augmentation and breast implants.

    Does Kate Upton Want to Downsize Her Breasts with Plastic Surgery?

    Everyone seems to love Kate Upton’s 34D breasts. Everyone except Kate Upton that is. In a recent interview, Kate reveals that she wouldn’t mind having smaller breasts and has considered breast reduction plastic surgery.

    The sexy supermodel is known for rolling around in swimwear and frolicking in lingerie, but says that she wouldn’t mind having smaller breasts that could more easily fit into sexy styles.

    21-year old Kate Upton revealed that despite the world’s love of her large breasts, she is less than enthralled.

     

    “I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs,” the supermodel and actress tells Britain’s The Sun on Sunday.

     

    “Every single day, I’m like, ‘Oh, man, it would be so much easier,’ especially if people didn’t constantly bring them up,” she confesses of her two biggest assets.

     

    According to Kate, she wishes that her breasts were smaller at least twice a day, however she acknowledges, “But the grass is always greener, as they say!”

     

    If Kate can’t reduce her breast size because her career involves showing them off, she wishes that they could at least be temporary or removable, like earrings.

     

    “If I could just take them off like they were clip-ons.”

     

    So if Kate’s curves aren’t her thing, who is? Apparently her new co-star Cameron Diaz suits Kate’s taste.

     

    She gushes, “In my eyes, Cameron Diaz has the perfect figure,” she gushed.

     

    Kate is making her official acting debut alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in the upcoming film The Other Woman.

    In the film, the ladies discover that they are all being played by one man and decide to get revenge. Leslie plays a housewife while Cameron is a lawyer while Kate plays the ditzy blonde.

     

    “I think it’s funny to act like a dumb blonde. I know that’s not the case so why not play on it?” she tells The Sun.

     

    “But I actually don’t look at my character as dumb,” Upton adds. “I think of her as young and naive, like I was once.”

     

    Although Kate’s breasts are natural, in the past she has been rumored to have breast implants, especially when she gains weight and it seems to all go to her breasts. As a young model with a full figure, Kate is frequently at the center of rumors swirling around her breasts, whether she is walking the runway for Victoria’s Secret or playing with penguins for Sports Illustrated magazine’s swimsuit edition.

     

    While certain photos do seem to indicate the full round quality of breast implants, most often these photos are when Kate is wearing a push up bra or on the cover of a magazine that has most likely been photoshopped to showcase her famous figure at its best.

     

    Kate looks great and once her modeling career peaks, she may decide to get a breast reduction so that she can comfortably wear the skimpy tops she favors without risking her career.

    Abbey Clancy Denies Plastic Surgery Claims

    British model turned celebrity reality show host Abbey Clancy wants to set the record straight. Despite persistent rumors, Abbey denies ever going under the knife for plastic surgery.

    28-year old Abbey Clancy was recently at the heart of rumors that she has undergone a breast reduction procedure, which the model laughs off as “rubbish.”

    Abbey tells UK’s now magazine, that in fact, she says that she is all natural and hasn’t had any plastic surgery.

     

    “I wish me boobs were big enough to get a boob reduction.”

    “Bloody hell. I haven’t had a boob job, I haven’t had veneers, I haven’t had Botox.”

    While she hasn’t had a breast reduction, Abbey acknowledges that pregnancy did have an effect on her body. Abbey is the mother of a 3-year old, Sophia, with her soccer star husband, Peter Crouch.

     

    “My body changed,” Abbey says.

     

    “I lost my bust.”

     

    In the past, gossip magazines noted that Abbey had transformed from her fresh faced 18 year old model beauty into a frozen faced footballer wife. However, most likely it was the result of aging and no longer being 18 that made Abbey appear differently. If she was frozen faced, then it is possible that Abbey had tried Botox injections, perhaps to make herself appear to be more mature. It is important to note that Botox injections are only temporary if not done on a routine basis, so it is possible that Abbey was using Botox at the time that the claims were made, but that the Strictly Come Dancing star has since stopped using the injectable and so the results have worn off and that she is once again natural.

     

    A few years back, Abbey also appeared to have very full lips, which were thought to be the results of lip augmentations. Again, as lip injections can be temporary when a filler like Juvederm is used, it is possible that Abbey tried the filler in the past but has since stopped using it and returned to her own natural lip shape. It is also possible that a shiny gloss or temporary superficial lip plumper was used by Abbey or her makeup artist, giving the appearance of having had some kind of plastic surgery lip augmentation.

     

    Back in those days, Abbey did look to have been filling out her bikini tops a little more, but she never had such a full bust that she would have been a likely candidate to suffer from back, shoulder or neck pain, which is why many busty women opt to have a breast reduction breast procedure.

     

    Recently, Abbey’s fellow soccer star wife, Victoria Beckham, admitted to downsizing her breast implants—although to be fair, she had never openly stated that she had breast implants in the first place. Earlier in her career, post-Spice Girl and pre fashion designer, Victoria Beckham was frequently at the center of plastic surgery controversy as she looked to have had obvious breast implants. She removed them just a few years ago, but only acknowledged their past existence and subsequent removal recently.

    Plastic Surgery at the MTV Movie Awards

    Every year the MTV Movie Awards reveal the unexpected from the stars. This year, Zac Efron went shirtless while Nicki Minaj went with a tame red carpet look. Still, the stars didn’t disappoint when it came to showing some skin and some plastic surgery.

    Hosted by late show host Conan O’Brien, the quirky redhead showed no signs of plastic surgery. However, as is he still battling bags around his eyes, a little Botox could give his eyelids a slight lift, which is much needed.

    During his opening monologue, Conan set a record for cameo appearances from stars and while funny guys Andy Samberg, Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler look to be aging naturally, female stars like Taylor Swift and Demi Moore are thought to have spent time under the knife, with everything from Botox to breast implants.

    Zac Efron received the award for Best Shirtless Performance and then had his shirt ripped off by presenter Rita Ora, showing why he deserved to win. The former teen heartthrob has certainly grown up nicely and takes good care of his fitness. He is rumored to have undergone a nose job when making the transition from Disney child star to grown up actor with an addiction problem.

    Nicki Minaj wasn’t up for any awards, but she did give a jaw-dropping appearance on the red carpet. While the rapper usually gets attention for her wild looks using outrageous wigs and candy colored outfits, this time she stunned for her simply sexy look. Wearing minimal makeup (for her) and a sophisticated black dress, Nicki showcased her curves in a sophisticated way. NIcki’s curves are likely the result of plastic surgery including breast augmentation and buttocks enhancement, but she swears her face is all natural, despite rumors of a nose job.

    Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Will Poulter won the Best Kiss category for We’re the Millers. Young Emma Roberts and Will Poulter are likely still natural although Emma may eventually change her mind in the future and have something done. Jennifer Aniston has openly admitted to having several nose jobs to correct a deviated septum, which has slightly altered her nose’s appearance over the years. She is said to love using laser treatments to keep her skin smooth and youthful and while she has admitted to trying Botox, she has also revealed that she is not a fan and instead prefers to stay hydrated with water.

    Mila Kunis is currently pregnant with fiancé Ashton Kutcher’s baby, so she is likely not visiting a plastic surgeon at present. However The Best Villain award winner for Oz the Great and Powerful has been rumored to have had plastic surgery in the past, including getting breast implants and a nose job. However, while Mila has said she is interested in plastic surgery in the future, she has yet to have any work done at the present time.

    Whether walking the red carpet or getting goofy onstage, the MTV Movie Awards were once again filled with fun—and a touch of plastic surgery as well.

    Is Kate Gosselin Having More Plastic Surgery than She Admits?

    Kate Gosselin hasn’t been a reality television staple for some years now. Still the mother of eight kids has still garnered attention thanks to her odd jobs over the intervening years, her parenting skills and her less than civil divorce from husband and former costar Jon Gosselin. Yet it seems that even as Kate’s life grows more complicated, she shows no signs of worry, causing new rumors of plastic surgery to spring up.

    Now 39 years old, Kate’s face is looking more unlined than ever as the reality star continues to get more and more glamorous. Kate is probably looking to reignite her previously hot career and may have had a Hollywood makeover including Botox, laser treatments and even a neck lift in order to have a smooth, wrinkle free face before her latest bid at fame, appearing on Celebrity Apprentice.

    Although filming the show often leads to some heated arguments, Kate’s forehead and the area between her brows never quite seem to crease, an indication of Botox, while laser treatments could get rid of signs of discoloration and fine lines associated with aging as well as residual signs of acne. Kate has a smooth neck as well, which is often the first to show signs of aging and as only a necklift can help, she may have had one.

    “Judging by low brows and less lines between the brows, Botox is very likely,” Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami told RadarOnline.com.

    “The makeup makes it a bit challenging to say accurately, but a skin tightening light pulse or serial lasers, chemical peels as well as a neck lift are all possibilities to explain the tighter jawline.”

    Kate has slimmed down over the years, but her face remains youthfully full, so may have had some fillers or fat grafts injected as well.

     

    “Fillers or fat transfer also are likely making her overall cheeks and face softer as well,” Dr. Ghavami, who has not treated Gosselin, added.

     

    In the past, Kate has always maintained that the only plastic surgery she has had was a tummy tuck, which was filmed for her family’s then reality show.

    “With all of the buzz about me having had a facelift, I will confirm that I have not had one (I am only 36!!!),” Kate wrote on her former CouponCabin.com blog back in 2011. “But, I will take all of the talk about how rested and young I look as a compliment! So thanks!”

    Kate is open about undergoing a tummy tuck but has adamantly denied rumors of a facelift or necklift, which many believe she must have had to help define her jaw and get rid of loose skin after her drastic weight loss a few years back. Although Kate has very arched brows and a smooth forehead, which are typically enhanced by the wrinkle-eliminating powers of Botox, Kate has never said that she uses Botox.

     

    Kate has stated numerous times how much she loves her tummy tuck and has even gone so far as to recommend the procedure to other new moms. However she has never stated how she manages to continually transform her look into something a little more Hollywood than many moms seem to manage.

    Kylie Minogue Admits Hair Extensions are Behind Full Hair

    Kylie Minogue is currently judging Britain’s version of The Voice reality competition and viewers are openly admiring her lush locks. But apparently Kylie’s hair isn’t all hers as her stylist has revealed that small hair extensions are at work.

    Lucinda Ellery, Kylie’s stylist revealed that Kylie’s full bouncy hair is the result of tiny specialized “fine hair extensions,” which are replaced every 12 weeks. The hair extensions are small and lightweight and thus do not damage hair.

    In addition, Kylie also uses clip on extensions, which are very temporary because like many pop stars, she likes to change her hairstyle on a frequent basis.

     

    45-year old Kylie battled breast cancer in 2005, using chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which has been known to cause hair loss in patients.

     

    The stylist, who works with people undergoing cancer treatments, explains, “As Kylie is always in the spot light and has an incredibly busy schedule, Kylie will want to maintain her healthy looking and luscious locks with as little effort as possible.”

     

    “Clip ins are temporary and removable, perfect for Kylie who often changes her look and makes a statement with her hair.”

     

    Despite her health problems in the past, Kyle has always managed to look healthy and well and has used plastic surgery treatments to help, namely Botox. For a while, Kylie was looking a little too smooth and flawless, which was attributed to overusing Botox, which is an injectable treatment used to freeze wrinkles and prevent them from forming, usually in the forehead and between the brows. It can also be used to give the eyelids a little lift and in crow’s feet around the eyes as well, although many people prefer to leave the crow’s feet alone in order to appear more natural.

     

    For a while, Kyle received a lot of criticism for her overly Botoxed appearance and so the star swore off it, saying that she wouldn’t use it again, although some critics remain skeptical.

     

    Many stars boost their own hair with hair extensions in order to have hairstyles that are thicker, fuller and longer than their own natural hair. Pop stars also tend to favor extensions because it allows them to change their hairstyle frequently from short to long to medium and everything in between in just a lengthy session at the salon. However, many stars that are known to use extensions to boos their hairstyles have also been spotted with bald patches.

     

    Hair extensions, although meant to create the appearance of thicker, fuller hair, can actually cause damage to hair, making it break and fall out and even create bald spots. To reduce damage, it is recommended that clip on extensions are used because they are only temporary and easy to remove so they don’t create tension or damage to hair. Depending on the extent of the hair loss caused by hair extension use, it is sometimes recommended that Latisse, the eyelash growth treatment, be used off-label in order to regrow hair. Stars that have suffered from hair loss as a result of hair extensions include Lindsay Lohan and Naomi Campbell, amongst others.

    Taylor Swift Going Hollywood with Plastic Surgery?

    Taylor Swift is still popular with a certain set, but many seem to be growing weary of her breakup ballads. While Taylor shops around for a new crew and new inspiration, some suspect that she is trying to change her appeal with plastic surgery.

    24-year old Taylor Swift may be best known for her songs about breakups with her famous beaus, but the young singer songwriter has no sense of humor when it comes to her music. Although she is routinely outed for her lyrical strategy, Taylor continues to call her work something else. So if she has had plastic surgery, she’s probably not going public with the news any time soon.

    Spotted at the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, Taylor looked a little different than she usually does, sparking rumors that Taylor has gone in Hollywood and spent time under the knife in an attempt to change her image.

     

    “She looks like a China Doll,” said one onlooker who spotted Swift at the ACM Awards.

     

    “She used to look so fresh-faced and real, but her face didn’t seem to move! It was so smooth, not a blemish in sight!”

     

    “She looked false. It’s sad that Taylor has gone all Hollywood.”

     

    Taylor has always had a unique appearance and she is too young to have much need of any procedures that would leave her with a perfectly pristine appearance, such as Botox. However, her skin may have cleared up as a result of outgrowing her adolescent acne or she may have used laser treatments, which can help with blemishes and scarring in addition to getting rid of fine lines. And while Taylor frequently sports red lipstick in a nod to old-school glam, she may have been caking on the rest of her makeup more than usual, creating a look that is different from her usual, more natural looking beauty.

     

    This isn’t the first time that Taylor has created a stir with her appearance. During the past couple of years, Taylor was spotted sporting a slightly larger bosom, leading to speculation that she had gotten a secret breast augmentation. While her love of Victoria’s Secret bras could have boosted her cleavage without plastic surgery, many fans and experts felt that her plunging red carpet gowns showcased small breast implants.

     

    Taylor’s looks aren’t the only things that have changed. Due to her lyrical problems, she has reportedly been told to stay away from dating and men for the time being, which may be why she was spotted on a road trip with model Karlie Kloss and more recently shopping with model Cara Delevingne.

     

    “Taylor’s advisers are tired of setting her up on dates only to have her strange personality scare men away,” one source revealed to RadarOnline.com.

     

    “Taylor is almost impossible to find dates for because of the nature of her music, which focuses heavily on heartbreak and ex-boyfriends. None of the guys she shows interest in want to be the subject of a mean song six months down the road or be painted the bad guy, so Taylor’s team want her to take a break from boys.”

    Samantha Harris Undergoing Double Mastectomy to Battle Breast Cancer

    Former Dancing with the Stars Host Samantha Harris has revealed that later this month she plans to undergo a double mastectomy to treat breast cancer.

    The 40 year old host and model detected a lump in her breast during a routine self examination last fall and eventually sought the advice of a breast cancer specialist after she had a normal mammogram but still didn’t feel right.

    After a needle biopsy and eventual lumpectomy, Samantha got a diagnosis she didn’t expect: breast cancer.

     

    “It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest,” Samantha says of her reaction to the news.

     

    Samantha then sought advice from three different specialists and was advised of two different treatment options: A double mastectomy or a less-radical second lumpectomy with radiation.

     

    However, feeling out of control since her initial diagnosis, Samantha decided she needed to take control of her health, both for herself and for her two daughters.

     

    “I was sick of feeling the way that I did in the days after the diagnosis,” says Harris. “I knew I needed to take control.”

     

    After doing her research and weighing all her options, deciding to undergo a double mastectomy has left Samantha feeling “much calmer.”

     

    Recently, many stars have come forward about their breast cancer diagnosis and how they have decided to treat it.

     

     

    Reporter Amy Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer  during a Good Morning America segment on Breast Cancer Awareness Month back in October. After getting diagnosed on air, Amy left her post on the popular morning show to take time off and get treatment, including a double mastectomy and the very painful removal of lymph nodes under her arm.

     

    Singer Anastacia also announced to fans that she had undergone a double mastectomy after her breast cancer returned, the latest in a lifetime of health issues.

     

    And entertainment reporter Giuliana Rancic was very open about her struggle with cancer and her eventual double mastectomy.

     

     

    Actress Angelina Jolie opted to undergo a preventative double mastectomy after learning she was at high risk of developing breast cancer because she carries a gene.

     

    Likely because of their careers in the entertainment field, many of these women have also opted to have reconstructive plastic surgery after their double mastectomy procedures. However, not all women who undergo a double mastectomy opt to have breast reconstruction. It may be too expensive or women just don’t feel comfortable with the procedure. To continue to wear clothing that is made for a woman’s chest, they may use silicone breast prosthesis along with mastectomy bras. Other women may enjoy not doing either and battles with breast cancer have been known to inspire some amazing body art.
