fake piercings: My First Mister

Jennifer (Leelee Sobieski) is a misfit: a Goth with multiple piercings, tattoos, and dyed hair who lives off chocolate, self-harms and prefers to be called ‘J’. Leaving school she needs a job and has to cklean up her act but she finds an unlikely friend as well. I was a bit confused as to why she suddenly turned up for tea in blackface.

Nina Kraft was key makeup artist; Robert Kurtzman was special makeup effects artist. The scene where she removes her metalwork was particularly well done but how come they left no marks?
