In sunlight the skin suffering from porphyria blisters and ulcers, which leave behind scars. Julie developed porphyria, when she was twenty-odd. To somehow cover up the scars, she made a few tattoos, and then, obviously, the process drew it, literally, with his head. While tattoos do not prevent her from further photodermatosis with masking they cope quite well.
