Welcome to week two of our Body Modification discussion!! Last week we took you through the history of tattoos, piercings, and plastic surgery and touched on some other, dare I say WEIRDER forms of body modification.
This week we're going a little bit deeper. This week we are discussing the psychology behind body modification. What is an unhealthy relationship with plastic surgery? Why are we so unhappy with our bodies and is that a new thing? How important is therapy when seeking major body modification? Are tattoos *actually* addictive? Can body piercings be used to deal with past trauma and abuse? We answer all of these questions and more!
Warning: We do get personal in this episode in discussing body image, body dysmorphia, and eating disorders.
Please remember to love yourselves and each other!
Ashley and Lauren here with another incredibly weird episode! This week is a squirmy worm, let me tell you! We really wanted to do a deep dive into body modification: the different forms and methods as well as where it all started.
Today Ashley is covering the history of tattoos and piercings - everything from the oldest mummy we have on record to the first Playboy Playmate with a visible tattoo! We're going to cover all types of body modification including tongue splitting, suspension piercings, subdermal implants, eyeball tattoos, and even the future of body modification in the form of biohacking.
Lauren is going to teach us the history of plastic surgery. From the ancient Romans to the Real Housewives we'll learn all about skin grafts, breast implants, botox, facelifts, liposuction, and more!
WARNING: Obviously we're going to talk about some things that might make your toes curl-- but please know that we have definitely toned down the grossness so that everyone can learn and enjoy! Even the squeamish.
(Looks over both shoulders & whispers) Hey weirdos,
(still whispering) this week we've got another batch of conspiracy theories to talk about and we're going to tinseltown to do so!
Celebrities are no stranger to rumors and gossip, and some of them have the pleasure of being involved in a full-fledged conspiracy! This week Lauren is going to be telling us about how Britney Spears DEFINITELY DIDN'T work as an operative for the Bush administration (wink wink) and Ashley is focusing on Beyoncé and getting deep into the Illuminati and discussing where this conspiracy came from, how the internet poured some gas on it, and why celebrities are the perfect targets.
So cover your computers camera lens, keep your ear to the ground, and join us for another dose of paranoia.
