I printed this a while ago, but have been too much of a wimp to stick them around town. I approximated the markings a plastic surgeon would draw for a facelift and silkscreened them on transparent stickers. I'm still too chicken, but I really want to put these in dressing rooms in women's clothing stores. I think there is a connection between plastic surgery and the idea that women's clothing should hide or exaggerate various sections of their body. The whole idea of "flattering" clothing is that it masks the natural figure in favor of a societal ideal. Plastic surgery is extreme, but shares the same fear of our bodies and desire to just pay someone else to end our own insecurities.
