Thread: Suomut's Skin Pigmentation (pheo.:eu./'blondness') Poll

  1. #1

    Question Suomut's Skin Pigmentation (pheo.:eu./'blondness') Poll

    Folks, please feel free to vote in this, my version, of a skin pigmentation poll. Mind you, this is not only a pheomelanin:eumelanin (pheo.:eu.), ratio, based poll, but it is also a 'blondness' or 'lightness' poll of skin color. Most of the options are based on Dr. Thomas Fitzpatrick's (of Harvard Medical School--2002) skin type scales. Each type/option is followed by descriptions/definitions of its characteristics.
    1. Type I (extremely blonde skinned): extremely pale, vein blood is highly visible, very freckle-capable with a maximum ephelide/freckle score of 6 to 7 (i.e., at least 6 freckle sites can be found on the sun exposed areas), incapable of tanning, & always burns when exposed to excessive sunlight. This type is commonly bound to the various blonde/light hair colors (yes, including the 'red'/'reddish' ones) and is also commonly connected with the various blonde/light iris colors. Universally the chest nipples are pink or pinkish.
    2. Type I-II (very blonde skinned): pale, vein blood is very visible, freckle-capable with ephelide/freckle scores ranging from 1 to 5 (i.e., from 1 to 5 freckle sites can be found on the sun exposed areas), very difficult or difficult to tan, & typically burns when exposed to excessive sunlight. This type is commonly bound to the various blonde/light hair colors (yes, including the 'red'/'reddish' ones) and is also commonly connected with the various blonde/light iris colors. Almost universally the chest nipples are pink or pinkish.
    3. Type II (blonde skinned): light, vein blood is visible, non-freckle-capable, sometimes tans, but usually burns when exposed to excessive sunlight. This type is commonly bound to the various blonde/light hair colors but also can be bound to the several brunette colors and is also commonly connected with the various blonde/light iris colors but also with with the various brunette iris colors. In most cases, the chest nipples are pink or pinkish but also occasionally brownish.
    4. Type II-III (light-medium skinned): the lighter side of medium, vein blood is sometimes visible though sometimes not, non-freckle-capable; average tan-ability, average burn-ability when exposed to excessive sunlight. This type is sometimes bound to the various blonde/light hair colors but more often is bound to the several brunette colors; and is similarly less connected with the various blonde/light iris colors and more connected with the various brunette iris colors. In some cases, the chest nipples are pink or pinkish, but in most instances they are not and are brownish.
    5. Type III (dark-medium skinned): the darker side of medium, vein blood is normally not visible, non-freckle-capable, tans often and only sometimes burns when exposed to excessive sunlight. This type is commonly bound to the various brunette hair and iris colors. In most cases, the chest nipples are brownish.
    6. Types IV through VI (dark to black skinned): Type IV is dark ('olive' is its classical cliche) and non-freckle-capable with vein blood not visible, always tans and never burns, and is commonly associated with black hair and either dark brown or black irises. In most instances the chest nipples are brownish or darker. The other types ranging from IV to VI grow progressively darker until the level of the latter/final one (VI) is reached wherein it is non-freckle-capable, tanning is irrelevant, it never burns, and the skin is black (in the sense of the classic Negroid). Both the hair and iris pigmentation of this type are black also. No one within the ranges of these skin types meets the membership requirements of TNP. :-|
    BTW, this is a public post, so your user name will be visible to all. If you vote option 6, you will be banned.

    Thank you all & cheers!.

    I voted for type I-II as I am freckly in areas of sun exposure--but I can also tan to some degree--so it was a toss-up between type I-II and type II.

    Maybe I'm a type I-II and a half.

    Type I and II are common in Northern Europe, II being typical. Type III is typical for Central Europe. Type III and IV for Southern Europe and the Middle East.

    I - II but rather II. Only had some slight freckles as a child.
    Veins are visible.

    I think you chose the right vote on that one P. Your skin and mine are not too far off from each other so it seems. As for me, there is only one part (on both sides) of my body that is 'tanned' (and it is only a slight/light tan at that) and that is my forearms...and, the only way they got that way was due to them being more exposed than the rest of my body parts (head excluded) to the EXTREME sunlight of the deep Amer. South (for over 3 decades), since I have all of my life worn mostly short-sleeved shirts (so, I've always had a rather mild 'farmer's tan' on my forearms). One thing about Norđids in the Amer. South...one is guaranteed to either freckle and/or burn and/or end up with a mild tan since the sun most of the year (esp. in the Deep South) SCORTCHES! long and hard most days. :-|

    Thanks for reminding me to include 'the vein blood issue' (esp. in the sense of the classic 'blue-bloods') in the options (I can't believe I overlooked that, since that's always a consideration I've always kept in mind...I'm getting old! lol )

    My ancestors are all from Northern Europe, but I figured myself to be a Type III (I chose Type II-III)... is that possible, or did I determine my skin type incorrectly? :

    I chose Type I, but I might be a type 1.5. I have freckles in all areas that have ever been exposed to sunlight (not excessive but plenty to go around). I have the blue blood vains that is very visible. I however will eventually tan but it is almost unnoticable when compaired to someone that has a 'real tan'. The only color I can get after burning most of the summer is a very light gold color only noticable if I compare it to my stomach which never gets any sun.

    My nickname at my last job was powder. LOL

    I think I am Type II....Quite pale where the sun doesn't go..(see pic 1)....but I go golden to burn with medium sun exposure.
    Is Type II right? ...Maybe some other folks skin sample photo's would help (don't have to show your face.. )...
