Sara Shakeel Turns Stretch Marks Into Glittery Works Of Art

Collage artist Sara Shakeel reveres stretch marks by filling them with glitter. They are, after all, symbols of a women’s experience and growth—so why hide them?

In hopes of getting people to better appreciate their natural forms, Shakeel encourages followers to send photos of their stretch marks and have her highlight, and not conceal, them.

The response has been surreal so far. “I cannot explain how overwhelmed I was to see around 300 emails of stretch marks, cellulite, [and] scars and the best part is I am getting requests from men asking if I can put glitter on their marks too!”
