Body art comes in various forms and while it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, one young woman says it’s unfair to treat those who adore body ink unfairly.
Covering her body with more than 1000 tattoos, this youngster says 98% of her body surface area has inkings. And she’s proud of every single one of them, giving her a unique identity that’s unlike all others.
But not everyone feels the same way and the amount of hate and discrimination she attains daily is mindblowing for her.
These days, she is working hard on bettering herself, and while with time she has managed to develop a thick skin, it’s sad to see the way she’s treated and the opportunities she cannot avail despite being like any other normal person.
Julia Anne says her current job is as a support worker. She certainly does feel so beautiful and the fact that her body has so much ink gives her a unique identity.
At the age of 35, she is living her life as per her will and chooses to never look back. As far as where her inspiration comes from for body art, it’s shocking to hear how her mom is her role model.
Growing up as a child, she was so fascinated by her mom’s tattoos. She loved how her mom promoted being unique and wanted her children to have their own identities instead of trying to live in the shadow of others. But that does come at a cost where people just refuse to treat her like any other.
“I just don’t get why people are ashamed to see me or don’t want to talk to me or give me nasty stares. I mean, I am human and should be considered that”- she added.
