I have had some interesting conversations with my sister, who is a digital photo editor for a major pornography/erotica magazine publisher. Those photos are edited the Hell out of. Tattoos are usually removed, as well as stretch marks, scars, zits, moles, tumors (at least once). Bone structures are changed, curves are modified, facial features moved. So, I'm not surprised you wouldn't see the dots in Playboy.

I'm not freaked out about marking triplets (or twins, etc...) at birth to be able to tell them apart. That was a pretty sure way of doing it, and not particularly obtrusive.

well, of course you'd cover it up. I mean, you cover up zits with makeup. That's an obvious thing to do. That wasn't really my point. And yes, any good glamour photographer fixes things. (well, maybe I shouldn't say any... I know a lot who are very anti-photoshopping, but whatever) I do it all the time. Tell you sister to get me a job.

See, I dunno. Somehow it just does seem obtrusive to me. I mean, really, it probably isn't. But at my gut, it feels like it should be.
