While I agree with your sentiments, bedknobs, I think in this case it was the incident/accident with her mother that unnerved her, followed up by some unsavoury press comments when she was perhaps vulnerable, so there are some extenuating circumstances. She was "nervous" about starring in the first place......(second programme if my memory serves me)
What about the health dangers of body piercing and tattooing also gaining in popularity, Doctors say that tattooing can pose medical risks, such as hepatitis and perhaps AIDS, if sanitary measures are not taken. Then there is the prospect of being permanently decorated long after the fad has passed out of style. True, some tattoos can be zapped away by a laser. But laser treatment involves several painful sessions, costing hundreds pound each.
Elderman is correct about risks but tattoo parlours are licensed these days, so the risks are mitigated. I don't like tattoos on women, particularly when they are visible on summer clothes etc., I think it's disfiguring - but that doesn't take away from the fact that the soloist has a lovely voice, she had sung before, and I hope she gets a chance to keep it up now they've found her again. I haven't heard any more about her mum's accident.
