Call it a body of work! Artistic Amara Aleman has turned her skin condition into a canvas for her artwork and utilizes the spiral patterns in her skin to create some truly stunning body paint pieces as an accessory to fashion and as a form of self-expression.
The OK! video shows Amara painting herself in various different patterns in a unique art style she calls "Artspots," as it shows her process from start to finish as well as the fantastic finished works.
Amara posts her incredible work to her social media, where it has received millions of views and thousands of delighted comments.
What’s more, she hopes to shatter the stigma associated with the condition by sharing her fantastic work.
Amara, 28, from Rhode Island, said: "I am using body paint to outline my skin-spots which are a result of a condition called vitiligo. I use this body art I call ‘art spots’ as an accessory to my outfits, an extension of my fashion sense, and to raise awareness and reduce stigma around the condition."
"I hope that it encourages others on the vitiligo community to embrace their uniqueness and shines a positive light on the condition," Amara added. "I have gotten lots of comments and messages thanking me for sharing this content, I’m happy to know it resonates with my vitiligo family."
“Just a year ago I was too ashamed to let my skin be seen in public, now I share it online for millions to see," she proudly concluded, "I’ve come a long way and I hope that by sharing my story I can help someone else get to a place of acceptance and self-celebration."
