“Ladies, don’t let a few wrinkles or crow’s feet get between you and the man in your dreams. Whatever the flaw, Dr. Steinman has a solution. Come see him at Aesthetic Ideals in the Medical Pavilion…”
Medical Pavilion: As ADAM became widely available among the citizens of Rapture, its self-healing abilities changed the use of all of the Pavilion’s healing facilities. Due to the instability of ADAM and excessive use amongst many of Rapture’s citizens, unforeseen physical deformations began to occur. In response, many hospital facilities quickly became replaced by cosmetic surgery facilities such as Dandy Dental and Dr. Steinman’s Aesthetic Ideals.
Another blogger reminded me last night I had these waiting in my drafts to post. I made a few myself (Picture 1, 6 & 10). Adjustments will need to be made to fit your lockscreen for some. I don’t usually have any issues. Check out @bathyspheric for their posts on some more great lockscreens!
