I don't know about tattoos but adding fat is appropriate for the U.S.

I don't see the point of a mannequin having a head...unless it's modeling hats or wigs. And is there any reason mass retailers need mannequins with nipples? Seriously.

Remember the "realistic" Dove girl ads? They got a lot of attention at first, but I don’t see them around anymore (at least not on billboards), which would seem to suggest that they didn't work. Besides, it's hard for me to believe that any bride-to-be will think "Oh, that fat saggy mannequin looks more like me than the skinny ones across the street, so I guess I'll shop here."
