From tattoos to piercings and big boobs, Katie Piper meets people planning major body modifications, and people who've already had them and regret it. Can they persuade the newbies to think again?
Featuring three bodyshockers as they prepare for difficult moments in their lives. One is moving to a new area, one is starting a business and the other is just trying to find love. In a sceptical world that tends to regard such people as freaks, can they convince others that underneath all the ink, piercings and split tongues they are just like everyone else? Keith lives with his wife and four children in a average suburban house in Essex, and has a normal 9-5 job as an admin assistant. The only thing unusual about 58-year-old Keith is his 15,000 collection of 2,000 all-over body tattoos. Keith and his family have been in their house for 10 years and by and large people are used to him, but he is now planning to move to a new area where people might not take kindly to the shocking appearance of their new neighbour. As Keith goes house-hunting, he reveals why he began getting tattoos and why he feels so compelled to continue. Meanwhile, Keith’s four children think that he has gone too far and his wife Lisa hates his appearance. She thinks that he “looks like a freak, a monster”. If she feels that way, what on earth will his new neighbours think?

They all loved to evoke feeling out of music, something they found hard to find in other musical groups they were a part of the past. Its like dating different folks until you meet the right gal.

The music The Giants continue to compose reflects their wide array of musical influences. The Giants have no musical limits, however they manage to sound like the same band.
With all of the comparisons to Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker, Charlie Daniels, the Outlaws, and so forth, this solid, hardcore rockin' honky tonk duo and their amazing band is an entity unto themselves. Eddie Montgomery (brother of John Michael) and Troy Gentry are equal parts country music that comes from Merle Haggard, George Jones, Wynn Stewart, Dwight Yoakam, and even Hank Williams.
