Am I suffering from body dysmorphia?
She has so radically altered her appearance that she may have done it because she didn't like how she was before. I think she looks wonderful but then I am hardly coming to that judgement from the same place as the great untattooed or lightly tattooed world.
When talking to the students this week, I admitted that I am now in a hurry to eliminate all my pink unadorned skin on my body and that feeling of urgency contributes enormously to my desire to have a bodysuit. I was also asked if all social considerations could be eliminated would I have my face tattooed. They appeared surprised when I said not only would I like to do that but it was a matter of sadness that I will never feel able to do so.
Does that make me ill? Is the woman here ill? I don't know. I don't feel ill, in fact I love being tattooed and it makes me happy. I must leave others to judge if I am a sick man or not.
