On 11 December 2015, 6 students from Rimini and 6 students from Vesanto got together in eTwinning's TwinSpace and talked about body image. Here is a short summary of their thoughts.
Body image in art, media, subcultures and popular culture
Everyone was quite satisfied with their bodies but there were some insecurities with weight and height. And some would make some minor changes to their bodies if they had a chance. Italians had more tattoos than Finns. We thought they are pretty acceptable in society but we had a few concerns about their impacts in employment. Tattoos may give wrong first impression of a person and in both countries elderly judge more tattoos and piercings. Thoughts about piercings were about the same with tattoos and many had them. We also discussed about skin implants, scarification. Many thought they are a bit too hardcore. We also thought plastic surgery was okay if there is a need for a one.
