Well, I guess you could call this titillating.

Not quite a birthday suit, but close enough. Her first Birthday Suit self-portrait was taken in Death Valley, California, in 1974.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

In this revealing photo series, people reveal their hidden tattoos

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Wednesday 21 May 2014

I don’t have a tattoo. I probably never will. It’s too much commitment, too forever, but more importantly it’s a huge statement to make and I don’t have the guts. Having a tattoo in the first place says a lot about somebody, and you can glean so much from a person depending on what their tattoo is.
