Changing Course

I've got to change course and talk about something else....

So forgive me, but I thought I'd change it up quite a bit. Today I want to talk about the newest beauty craze-

You heard me right, TIT-TOOING, and it's all the rage. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't read about it for myself. Now "tittooing" is nothing like the picture above. No, this latest beauty craze comes out of the UK and it's not about pictures on boobs."Tittooing" is about  the tattooing on or around the nipple to darken the areola or re-shape the nipple. And get this: some people think their nipples are too pink.?

"A lot of people want their nipples made darker. It’s the fashion," says Gail Proudman, a clinician who performs the procedure. "Some people think theirs are too pink or their boyfriends want them done. I think sometimes they are doing it because they are conscious of them being pale and they think it’s fashionable to have dark nipples."

Since when did nipples become "fashionable"?

The entire procedure takes about two hours to perform and touch ups are needed every 12-18 months to avoid fading. Prices have been quoted at 1,200 British Pounds for a full set, which according to today's calculations is about $1827.60 USD. A real bargain.

I have to wonder how safe it all is?

I guess it all comes down to the youth in our culture being obsessed with perfection. I'm all for doing a safe procedure if you can afford it and it makes you feel good. But the last time I checked, unless your job description listed "porn star" a woman's nipples were kept mostly under wraps. Or bras. Or shirts for that matter. I'm not sure what this says about the direction of the youth of our world.

One thing's for sure, I'd file this one under titty torture.

Good LORD. I could understand this if there's some sort of DEFORMITY to correct, but otherwise, Why mess up a perfectly good set of natural jugs ?

I'm anti tattoo. I can't believe so many girls get tattoos.

Thanks for keeping us abreast of this titillating development.

Glad to see you are back on the air!

I can't help but think this is just way too painful.

Oh, hell no. Tattoos to darken nipples? If it's really such an issue, what's wrong with throwing a little brown blush or self-tanner on the suckers and then call it a day? Much less painful and expensive!

As for these girls doing that because their boyfriends are dissatisfied with their pink nipples, that's just twisted. That's a sign you need to upgrade your boyfriend, for certain! I can't imagine getting painful tattoos on my nipples because someone else was pouting about their coloring. No way!

I heard a report of the same news story. The only time I had heard about this before was from a friend who was having reconstructive surgery after breast cancer, and was going to have areola tattooed in.
