"Perhaps I can allay your misgivings by briefly describing the composition I have in mind ---

your face will be a still-life delicately balancing a clay pipe, a deck of Tarot cards, a bowl of tangerines and a dead grouse;

your neck will be given to religious subjects such as "The Annunciation," "The Martyrdom of St. Sebastian" and "The Old Rugged Cross" to name but a few;

"The Defenestration of Prague (July 30, 1419)," "Attack of the Visigoths under Alaric II" and "The Demise of Warren Harding" grace your back;

your shoulders and breasts will be covered with scenes of Pagan Mythology which I won't go into at this time;

your midriff and loins will be done in landscapes --- picturesque windmills and the like;

your buttocks will be devoted to lyrical themes such as "Fortitude Slaying Avarice with the Lance of Sagacity";

dancing Silesian weavers and other rustic motifs will enhance your legs;

studies of songbirds of the southwestern United States will run up your arms ending with a flourish of floral filigree work in your armpits!

I haven't yet decided what to do with your feet or your ears! In any case, the whole thing shall be set off by the stirring Motto emblazoned on a flowing banner:

"Art is an alchemical technology.
It must be used positively to impact personal transformation,
human transformation and planetary transformation."
