Each day there is another theme and this day it was : "They refuse to be unnoticed"
Indeed with this tattooed face you have to be blind not to notice this young man !
He was 28 years old, and had started to make his face and body a living art work. He had started when his mother died when he was 21. That's what he said. I found the artwork rather odd and wondered what kind of relationship he had with his mother. The psychologist wondered too.
He said that he feels now so good about himself and that his "artwork" is not yet finished. There is still room left for other tattoos. The horns were made through surgeries, he is now at his third silicon layer and wants to add 3 more. He thinks they are too short. I know men who also wear horns, but they are invisible, and sometimes have more then 6 layers ! I wonder if he will hang some Christmas balls on them when it's Christmas time.
To the question if he is accepted in society he answered that of course he has lost many friends and that people are staring at him wherever he goes, even the fact that some throw tomatoes at him didn't bother him at all. Only the fact that people notice him counts.
The psychologist tried to analyze his behavior but without any success. He was closed like an oyster and stubborn like a donkey. He said that he is normal and has no problems with his odd look. To the question how he thinks he would look like when he was in his 60th or 70th he pretended that he still would look good especially when his horns had grown bigger. Poor guy, what a dreamer. When he wakes up, if he ever does, what a catastrophe he could never get rid of all tattoos and deformations he had done to his face. The green underlip is not a lipstick but a tattoo, it will last green forever.
Strangely or just because, he was very intelligent and studied science !! Of course he had no girlfriend (yet) as he said, I wonder if he ever will find a woman who wants to wake up besides a Frankenstein.
The second person in the show was a girl who hadn't found her identity yet ! She owned 60 wigs and transforms herself every day into another person, mostly by kids well known figures.
As I don't know these figures I can't tell what she represents here. She has to dress each day into another person, otherwise she won't go out and hide her real face, nobody is allowed to see her without her costumes. The psychologist told her that she needed help and I agreed with her, without being a psychologist.
Unfortunately I missed the problems of the third person who was there, I think she must have problems with today's fashion and wants to look like a lady out of the 1930th !
When the show was over and I went shopping I saw some odd looking people but not that odd !
