After Being Bullied For Vitiligo All Her Life, This Girl Now Turns Her Body Into Amazing Art

Ash Soto was diagnosed with vitiligo when she was 12. As her vitiligo started spreading, she began to feel ashamed of her skin, especially after a little girl asked her if she had showered in bleach. Now the 21-year-old not only isn’t ashamed, but she embraces her skin.

In her late teens, Soto decided she wouldn’t let her skin hold her back anymore, so she started setting herself daily challenges like walking in public without a long sleeve shirt. Eventually, the challenges led to Soto turning her body into beautiful art. “I never realized how beautiful my vitiligo was until I traced it with a black marker, it really helps to bring out the different colors of my skin,” Soto said to Daily Mail. Now, she has made her body look like so many different art pieces, including Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and she’s not stopping! “Now what others would perceive as an imperfection I have made into something more beautiful and made it more accepted than before.”

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

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

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

“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

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

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

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

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

This is what the ideal woman’s body should look like

According to a study, this young woman has the perfect body. I personally agree.

Let me introduce Kelly Brook — a model, an actress, owner of a perfect body! Yes, you heard right. According to a study conducted at the University of Texas, this young woman has the perfect body.

The study took into account such characteristics as height, weight, hair length, and face shape. It turned out that the body which makes most women say, ’I’d like to lose a few pounds,’ is the very ’ideal’ that shines with health and beauty, and looks attractive to men. The scientists say: ’This woman is completely natural and scientifically perfect.’

Kelly never had plastic surgery, and she looks great: her body looks good and is healthy, and the young lady’s face shines with happiness. Despite all of this, Kelly said many times that she was an object of ridicule because of her body, and the beauty scouts called her too plump.

The Secrets Behind Our Five All-Time Favorite Magic Tricks

Discover the truth behind the magic!

A magic show is a tried and tested way to keep kids happy and enthralled. Sometimes, looking at all those incredible goings on, even the grown-ups can’t help exclaiming: ’’How is it possible?!’’

Pulling a rabbit out of a hat

To perform this trick, you’ll need a rabbit, a tablecloth-covered table, a piece of cloth, and a top hat. Take a square piece of thick black cloth and tie all of it’s four corners together loosely. Place a rabbit inside this improvised sack. Hang the sack on a hook, located at the side of the table that will be facing you during the performance. The tablecloth needs to be arranged in such a way as to prevent the audience from seeing the sack. At the beginning of the performance, show the top hat to your audience to demonstrate that there’s nothing inside. Next, put the hat on the table, with the hat opening facing the table surface. Now comes the most important part of the trick. Using easy and inconspicuous movements, lift the hat quickly by the brim and put the sack underneath the hat. Now, make some movements showing that you’re conjuring something up, remove the hat from the table and reveal the rabbit to the audience!

Red Storage Container Looks Normal From The Outside, But Inside There’s A Stunning Home

This is gorgeous — I would absolutely live here if I could!

When people think about buying their first home, they probably don’t immediately think about a storage unit.
Usually, people imagine gorgeous doors and windows, big yards, and white picket fences, not metal-sided, windowless storage containers.

But for some, a storage container is the perfect solution for a low-budget, easily movable home.
This red metal storage crate looks like a normal storage container from the outside. Inside, though, there is a stunning tiny home.

As the tiny home movement has taken off, more and more people have become interested in downsizing and living minimalist lifestyles.
Tiny houses allow people to live more nomadic lifestyles, since many tiny houses are on wheels or transport easily. This means that you can travel the country while never leaving behind the comforts of home.

Although most people who buy tiny homes are single or only live with one other person, there are also families that have joined the tiny house movement, living in small homes and even refurbished school buses.
