    Just one more comment and I promise I'll stop:

    Go for the boob job. It's great being a grandma with perky D's! I got them nearly 20 years ago - still up there, right where they belong.

    re: training, most times the permanent make-up is done by specialists and in many cases, by actual plastic surgeons. Its not really the type of tattoo work you can get done in your neighborhood parlor. I say most times because there are a number of variables.

    If you just want a simple Cindy Crawford mole drawn on your face or some simple lip liner or eyebrow shading done, your local guy may be able to do it.

    But anything that would involve work on the eyes or being put under general anesthesia etc. would involve a trip to the plastic surgeon.

    re: my opinion on it; i think it a good alternative for people who are allergic to most brands of make-up,people who need to be in heavey make-up and under bright lights on a daily basis and maybe sweat a lot, causing make-up to run into their eyes and down their faces (dancers, singers, news casters) , people with handicaps that affect their manual dexterity and ability to put on make-up etc.

    For the everyday person, its a matter of convenience. So you have to weigh the convenience factor vs. the permanence factor. The whole color issue is not really a big factor tho, as you can always have it touched up (just like botox, lipo, teeth bleaching etc need occassional touching up) or just put on actual make-up those times when you want a different look.

    But any tattoo or peircing is a surgical procedure and all such procedures carry with them inherent risks - like infections. So its important to research your tattoo artist - check photos of past work - time at same location - references, from past clients etc. Same as with a Doctor.

    a quick word on eyebrows;

    what they would likely do is, shave off her eyebrows and then shade in some permanence...so at first, she would look like someone who shaved their eyebrows and penciled in fake ones...which is how some people do it every day or for formal events.

    Then she could either leave it that way, or allow her own eyebrows to grow back in and the shading would be behind her own eyebrows, which would give sort of a "highlights" effect.

    You could also likely customize how much, how wide and how dark they do the shading.

    re: the teeth whitening. i did a laser whitening prior to getting 2 porcelain crowns on front teeth. i didn't think it was too terribly dramatic and it was VERY expensive. however, the trays that the dentists make with the gel work GREAT. and b/c i paid so freakin much for the laser whitening, the trays and gel were "free." :rolleyes anyway, if you are wanting really pretty white teeth and the storebought stuff isn't working, look into getting the bleaching trays made that fit your teeth and using the gel. i thought it was awesome.

    also, since i am here, i want to add. when i need it, one surgery i will have is a breast lift. i figure gravity will eventually take it's toll and i am not going to take it!

    Regarding the permanent makeup tattoos....no thanks, definitely not for me. I rarely wear much makeup as it is and like the ability to change what bit I do wear whenever I please. I realize you could still change around the makeup style even with the tat, but even still it's not something I'd do.

    It seems like a lot of people here would like LASIK. I would like to have it done as well, I even had a consult, but I am afraid of long term side effects that are not known of now.
    I'll just stick with my contacts/glasses.

    I completely agree with you on LASIK, Marley. I've gotten as far as a consultation, but still have a fear of the long term results. My mother actually had the RK surgery when it was in the experimental stage and has had very good results, despite being back in glasses again. She went from outrageously bad vision (legally blind without glasses) to now just having very lightweight ones for reading and driving. I'm still not 100% convinced on it, so I'm quite happy with being able to have contacts.

    Although I'm sure I could use help, my real problem areas are ones I need to work on myself. Mainly from waist to knees. Of course I'd like my legs to match, but it isn't going to happen again, so why sweat it? I would never have plastic surgery, but don't see why others can't have it if they want to. Oh yeah, girls, please don't dye your hair some totally unbelievable color as you age. My DIL's mother is in her 70's and her hair is exactly the color of a caramel candy. An old lady who looks about 80 eats at a restaurant where we go and she has her hair a strange burgundy color.
    Daddio I found the tattoo subject very interesting. You sound quite knowledgeable. I'm remembering a tattoo I saw when I was young. The lady was so skinny that the butterfly on her ankle overlapped on the inside of her leg.

    Other than losing a bunch of fat, the only thing I'd really like to change is that I'd have longer legs...mine are really short in proportion to my body. That, and a ride back about 15 years in a time machine so I'd feel better!

    For those people who want whiter teeth; the heck with those strips. 5 years ago I got the custom trays from my dentist to remove stains where I used to smoke. The solution you get from the dentist's office is much stonger than drugstore stuff, and my trays are still usable. I only have to touch up my teeth about once a year, so the initial $200 (on sale ) price was well worth it.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.
