Hi! I’m not pregnant… yet ;)
it’s something i’m aiming for, but i just wanted to share what someone said that by some miracle completely changed my view of my body.
I was at an old hangout playing music when I overheard a GUY say to one of my friends that he thinks stretchmarks on women are one of the most beautiful things in the world. He said that so many people go out and spend money trying to get tattoos or piercing to try and represent something while at the same time so many women carry these battle scars of growth and maternity. Its something that nature gives women almost like a right of passage to be carried proudly like tribal markings and for this he thinks they are beautiful.
I pretty much cried.
Just wanted to thank you for your wonderful project, coming from a young woman who already has growth scars and will probably get birth scars as well. And wanted to let all the women out there know that at LEAST one man recognizes our marks of womanhood.
(i’ll probably be back in the not too distant future with my own photos)
