What's that black stuff? Tape? Paint?

Have you been watching the 2008 Summer Olympics? What is all that black stuff on Kerri Walsh's shoulders? Since she's playing beach volleyball, you get a pretty clear view of her shoulders. Black paint? Tattoo? A birthmark? Some type of tape? That mystery black stuff is kinesiotape. It is designed to provide some comfort and stability and it comes in different colors.

So is kinesiotape a medical advance? Or is it a stylish way to get attention during the Summer Olympics?
