Artist Turns Stretch Marks And Other Body “Flaws” Into Stunning Art, But Not Everyone Finds It Beautiful

Stretch marks, scars, and even menstruation are all things women are routinely told to hide, but one Barcelona-based artist is turning these supposed flaws into beautiful new ways to appreciate the female body.

21-year-old Cinta Tort Cartró, who goes by the pen name Zinteta on social media, does it all with rainbow paint and glitter. Her colourful depictions of stretch marks, period blood, and the female anatomy aim to foster self-love in the hearts of girls who may feel ashamed of their bodies. Cartró’s creative awakening was inspired by her own difficult path to self-love, which makes the message of her work all the more powerful.

“Stretch marks are part of our essence, our moments, our lives, our stories and us,” Cartró writes on Instagram. “To accept all this is to accept your roots, your history, everything in it and, after all, accept yourself.”

Experience this amazing project for yourself below, and tell us what you think in the comments.

Don't like period stuff personally. Also don't like people attempting to make me feel guilty about not liking period stuff, or that society as a whole has conditioned me to not like period stuff like I'm some gullible sheep and everyone else is more 'woke' than me. Let me take credit for coming to the personal conclusion that periods are gross and I don't like them. Also Jesus dude if your periods are that explosive, I think medical assistance may be in order!

As a nurse, and someone who has the problem....do you have any how many women suffer from heavy periods. If you don't, lucky you. I actually have severe anemia now due to it. The doctors are pushing me to have a hysterectomy. So, am I supposed to feel disgusted with myself or something due to this condition. Should I feel "unclean? Hate to break it to you, but you are kind of sheeplike or behind the times. Maybe you should have been born when they banished women into the woods during their period. Really hope you don't have children to teach this attitude to. Enough males are still squeamish that they can't even purchase period supplies for their significant other.
