Anyone Heard of This?

Has anyone seen a photo series where the people had make up done to show where nerve pain feels like it exists vs where nerves really are? I wasn't too do a project about this, but am hoping to find some examples to give the makeup artist am idea, but so far haven't found much....

As a make up artist myself I would take a diagram of where the nerves are that run throughout the body and use that at a reference. Then to show wher3 the pain is using makeup you can take different tones of color and make it look more painful in some areas and less pain in other areas. If I find something like this I will post it. I hope that makes sense

No, but that sounds really intriguing. 🙂

I have a picture of what fibromyalgia would look like if you could see it. It's just a visual poster type thing to help others understand. no technical explanations or anything, but I find it really useful to help those who can't "see" my illness to understand a bit. Because most ppl understand bruises and trauma pain. I know we can't post pictures on here, so I don't have any way of sharing it.
