Artystka pochodząca z Pakistanu swoim projektem chce zerwać z tabu krążącym wokół blizn, rozstępów i innych stereotypowych wad, które nadal przez nasze społeczeństwo traktowane są jako coś gorszego.
Kintsugi to japońska metoda naprawiania zepsutych, pękniętych przedmiotów mieszanką złota, srebra i platynowego proszku. Dla tamtejszej społeczności uszkodzone obiekty są jeszcze więcej warte niż nowe, ponieważ zawierają w sobie pewną historię – opowieść.
Ta właśnie idea przyświeca Sarah Shakeel, która zamieszcza na swoim Instagramie nietypowe przeróbki zdjęć przedstawiających rozstępy, zamieniając je tym samym w małe dzieła sztuki.

I have never felt so powerful & liberated and so fucking proud of mystretch marks in my entire life !!! From where I come from & live , To be on the chubby side or to even talk about stretchmarks is not something one is proud of, i have seen my stretch marks grow from the day i started putting on weight, I'd be honest even before uploading it I was thinking why would anyone be interested in my concept of stretch marks turned into glitter or crystals!!! My god I was so wrong! Amazing people and women are already doing such an amazing job with representing these stripes and cellulite!!! Thank you for a beautiful response everyone!!!! I have been featured on @cosmopolitan & @yahoostylebeauty link is in my story. Support and love yourself for who ever you are! Cause there is someone out there sharing the same feelings as you are! There is one thing for sure YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! ?????? #glitterstretchmarks #stretchmarks #happy #inlove #loveyourself #theweekoninstagram #instagram #tigerstripes . . This picture is by one of my amazing followers who was brave enough to share this with me!! Thank you love!!!! #theweekoninstagram
