Ever stop to think of those people who are alergic to water, or vibrations?

Many individuals stuck with the condition have quite a bit of fun with it, using their bodies as outlets for creative expression by scratching messages and designs into their skin.

More serious instances may require some shifts in lifestyle to minimize potentially painful contact.
