That`s kinda cool, but...kind of gross at the same time. If I didn`t know it was a disease, I`d think it was quite gorgeous.

That is... beautiful. Taking an annoying skin disorder and turning it into art is just amazing. I particularily liked the "connect-the-dots" she did on her legs.

Lizziel it couldn`t possibly be flouride....dermatographism is an allergic reaction...we are allergic to our skin being irritated be it changes in temperature, pressure, etc.

However my dermatographism comes in cycles. It is worst in the coldest and hottest months of the year.

That`s a coincidence you posted this web site. I was talking to my grown daughter recently about it. When she was 4 she was prescribed floride pills since we had well water. She developed this condition, which disappeared after we figured out the culprit. I would have fun drawing on her!!

This isn`t actually anything original though. There`s an incredily famous picture of the word ITCH written on the back of a man with dermogrphism in the same manner.

Its not mutilation... All she has to do is scratch her skin. Unless when you scratch an itch it is also mutilation. Some kid I knew could do that, he would draw stuff on his arms with his nails and it would stay there just like that. He wasn`t hurting himself at all

i dunoo its kinda cool to take advantage of a disese, rather than just be annoyed. While not the most artistic display it`s still her skin and not paper, and is probally not comfy. And it disapears relitivly fast so she can not get to intrequet(sp).

I also have this skin condition. There are some things that this doesn`t tell you.

1. those welts are itchy. and scratching them causes more welts. bumping into something can cause you to absently scratch. In less than twenty minutes you can be covered in huge welts that itch like crazy.
2. if you have dermatographism you are extremely sensitive to soaps, perfumes, and laundry detergent. Every thing that touches my body has to be spot tested to check how allergic I am to it. This means that I have to carry around my own soap
3. If you get hit...anywhere it swells up and itches. That means that if something hits your face...part of it will swell up.
4. The more clothing you wear on that part of the body....the more sensitive it is. Embarassing itch is only the beginning.

and this condition is more common than they let on. something like 20% of the population has at least a mild form of Dermatographia. The extent that I and this girl have it is rare though.

I rather liked it, very creative way to embrace your affliction. I really don`t see how anyone can call this self-mutilation, considering it occurs due to minor scratches and goes away in a half hour. Some people need to learn to read descriptions.

I think that it`s a good idea but I only actually liked a few of the photographs. She could be even more creative with it I think. But it`s pretty clever.

It looks a little similar to scarification but rank was probably a bit harsh.

Art for art`s sake huh?
