Ask people if they would give their car a wild custom paint job. “No, it ruins the resale value and could make a bad impression driving into work or when passing a cop!”
Cars can always be repainted.
Actually to a degree, people can too - although not very well.
There is a public park I walk in every day. Several times, at a distance, I would see a blond running at a distance. Typical getup of runner's shorts and sports bra, and so help me this woman belongs in Playboy.
One day I'm letting my dogs get a drink at the dog fountain, when she shows up to get a drink at the human fountain. It's then I realize this poor girl has been in a fire or burned. There are patches of her skin on one leg, an arm, and behind here shoulder that are kind of rough and discolored. It was really a contrast because the rest of her skin is silky perfection. After I see here a couple of more times and realize some of those burns almost seem to have shapes to them - the light in big dummie's head finally comes on -
Those are places she had tattoos removed. Apparently this zapping them with a laser to make the ink explode works, but it doesn't leave the skin exactly the same as it was. I guess if your skin wasn't that good to being with, it may be OK. But if you had skin like a perfect porcelain doll - guess what - you won't anymore!
