Lhouraii Li from Bradford shared why she wants to be permanently and completely blue-skinned.
People might think the best way to achieve this goal is to tattoo herself thoroughly but Lhouraii thinks she’s allergic to it.
The West Yorkshire-based nail artist uses face paint as she’s obsessed with aliens and characters like Zora from The Legend of Zelda video games and Diva from the sci-fi movie The Fifth Element.
Lhouraii says she only spends about $13 per month on her hobby.
“I’ve always felt quite alone and like I don’t belong and it’s a really horrible feeling,” she expressed. “So I tried to make myself a little world where I kind of feel like I do belong.
“I’ve got pictures of space in the windows because I’m in here 99.9 percent of the time, so if I’m feeling down I can pretend like I exist in a place that’s happy and just look like I’m in a spaceship or something.
“And I think that’s the same with being blue as well – it’s just a way for me to feel like myself.”
She went on: “I think my idea of beauty is people being themselves. If I see someone with blue skin I’ll think they look 10 times better just because I truly love blue skin.
“But people being their true selves, living for themselves, and just dressing how they want to dress – I find that so beautiful.”
Lhouraii started doing this style a couple of years ago but it eventually evolved and she started painting her skin completely blue.
“My style used to be mistaken as me trying to look like a Barbie and I wasn’t actually. The style was a Japanese subculture called Gyaru and I still consider myself Gyaru, but just blue,” she expressed.
