Summary
Shows the evolution of three unique attributes of human skin: its naked sweatiness, its distinctive sepia rainbow of colors, and its remarkable range of decorations. This work examines the modern human obsession with age-related changes in skin, especially wrinkles. It explores our use of cosmetics, body paint, tattooing, and scarification
