This Girl Turned Her Skin Disease Into A Piece Of Art And This Is Truly Beautiful!

17 Mar 2017


1

Ash Soto was diagnosed with vitiligo when she was 12 years old


2

It’s a rare skin disease which causes pigment loss, leaving large white patches all over body


3

During Ash’s teen years vitiligo spreaded the most and the bullying began


4

After a little girl asked Ash if she had showered in bleach, Ash felt too ashamed of her skin and decided to never show any of it in public


5

“I was so shocked that someone said that to me that I cried and cried, I didn’t want to have the condition any more,” Soto said


6

However, in her late teens, Ash made herself do these little challenges, such as walking outside with a short-sleeved shirt


7

But it wasn’t until she started doing body art that she learned to love her skin condition


8

She started by drawing around the white patches and saw that it looked like a world map


9

“I never realised how beautiful my vitiligo was until I traced it with a black marker, it really helps to bring out the different colours of my skin”


10

“I will continue creating different pieces of art with my skin and hope it inspires others in the process”


11

“Now what others would perceive as an imperfection I have made into something more beautiful and made it more accepted than before”
