Would You Ever Paint on Fake Abs?

I've been known to use self-tanner to give myself a little extra definition now and again, but the number of instructional YouTube videos about using bronzer to give yourself a six pack is pretty astonishing. I can understand this if you were, say, going as P!nk for Halloween. But more people seem inclined to paint them on when headed to the beach or pool, and that makes me a little confused. Going to the water is a waste of time for me if I can't take a dip, and I think the fake abs would only make me more self-conscious. What do you think? Would you ever use — or have you ever used — your bronzer brush for a Baywatch tummy?

I did it like 7 years ago. While in collge, I used to work at a bar that required us to wear tight low-ride jeans and a belly baring shirt (a la Coyote Ugly). I had a six pack back then but to give even more noticeable definition to our ab muscles, we'd use makeup to define the muscles and our whole body had a glittery bronzer dusted on.I'd never do it now though! That was only for my "bar" days.

I would never paint on fake abs. The idea seems a little bizarre to me.

I'm plenty proud of my abs the way they are. If someone would rather see me with a six-pack, I'd rather see theirs first 0=)
