  1. The second thing I think of, after "wow, she's beautiful," is what a pity it is that Michael Jackson lacked the self-esteem needed to do something like this when he developed vitiligo, instead of turning himself into a bleached alien mutant.

  2. This is awesome. YAY self-esteem!

  3. My first thought was, "this would make for the basis of an interesting world origin story."

    Forget turtles and elephants. The world exists on the body of an ancient being and the map is difficult to draw because the curves of the land aren't a simple shape. It would make epic journeys all the more interesting.

  4. OH yes. Put her on Game of Thrones, with a map to some distant land or something.

    The City of Lost Children had a map tattooed on the the top of a bald man, but that movie is so obscure I can't fine a pic of it.

    I wish I could do something interesting like that for my tumors...

  5. I always thought about doing something like this with the rampant vitiligo on my hands and arms and neck. But then I went and didn't do something like that. Like I always do.
