Deze Instagrammer verandert striae in prachtige kunstwerkjes

Over het algemeen wordt striae niet gezien als een schoonheidsideaal of iets waar we trots op moeten zijn. Vreemd want er zijn maar weinig vrouwen die ongehavend een groeispurt doorkomen: of het nou tijdens de pubertijd is gebeurt of tijdens je zwangerschap. Bijna iedere vrouw heeft er mee te maken en het is dus eigenlijk niets om je voor te schamen.

De Pakistaanse kunstenares Sara had het doel om ervoor te zorgen dat vrouwen hun eigen lichaam inclusief striae zouden omarmen en daarom bedacht zij om deze ‘tijgerstrepen’ te versieren met glitters. Via haar instagrampagina deelt zij prachtige foto’s waarbij de striae is ondergedompelt in glimmers.

Bekijk een aantal glitterkunstwerkjes van Sara hieronder.


I have never felt so powerful & liberated and so fucking proud of mystretch marks in my entire life !!! From where I come from & live , To be on the chubby side or to even talk about stretchmarks is not something one is proud of, i have seen my stretch marks grow from the day i started putting on weight, I'd be honest even before uploading it I was thinking why would anyone be interested in my concept of stretch marks turned into glitter or crystals!!! My god I was so wrong! Amazing people and women are already doing such an amazing job with representing these stripes and cellulite!!! Thank you for a beautiful response everyone!!!! I have been featured on @cosmopolitan & @yahoostylebeauty link is in my story. Support and love yourself for who ever you are! Cause there is someone out there sharing the same feelings as you are!
