This Artist Is Turning Women’s Stretch Marks into Art—and It’s Pretty Darn Wonderful

Rather than trying to diminish stretch marks with various creams and brushing remedies (the norm these days), 21-year-old Spanish artist and teacher Cinta Tort Cartró (or Zinteta on Instagram) is hard at work flipping that body-negative narrative. 

Instead, she's turning stretch marks into works of art with glittering, colorful paint. Think: A fiery blaze cascading up a woman's thigh, or a bunch of gentle waves across a female butt. 

As Cartró told Yahoo Beauty, “It all started as a form of expression, but it quickly turned into social commentary of the male-dominated culture we live in.”

Most recently, Cartró has delved into works geared at normalizing menstruation or even lady parts, as a whole.  

We can't wait to see which issue she takes her sparkly paintbrush to next.
