The project "Beauty Warriors" is a collection of photographs featuring strange looking beauty gadgets. I found them on Ebay, most of the gadgets are made in China. These products promise instant cure without surgical intervention. They are much cheaper than plastic surgeries and botulin injections and if you believe, they might work!

To be successful, you must be perfect and look perfect—these are our society’s rules, which we all follow without even realizing how ridiculous the standards are. We often forget about the importance of inner beauty.

Models for this project are my friends, family and volunteers found with the help of social media.

The project was part of my coursework. I am studying Contemporary Art and Contextualised Practice BA(Hons) at University of Highlands and Islands, in Inverness, Scotland.

You should seek medical attention for those warts on your arm.

They're implanted rhinestones, a form of bodily modifications comparable to tattoos and piercings.
