Chapters include: Body Painting and Make up, Tatooing and Scarification, Jewellery and Piercing, Hair and Nails, The Foot and The Shoe, Masks, Second Skin, Body Sculpting, Gender Transformation. Adult content. Much nudity. Could offend those who do not agree with this underground way of life. Caution. Though, should you believe in the celebration one's identity and self-image, this is a book for your library.
