We all should have sth that trully matters to us, sth that makes us better ppl and lets us express ourselves. When you modify your body, you know that you can modify (or change) other things as well and then you really can become a change you want to see in the world (even if Ghandi didn’t really mean it this way ;)

‘be a change you want to see …? again? Hell yes and these ordinary tattooed ppl from WI prove it with their charity drive – small steps, good deeds and the color of your skin may not matter one day!
And a Polish one – why it must be always the semi-naked women on the calendar pages? Let the men show what they have, too ;)
