Thanks to body-positive style icons such as Ashley Graham, Danielle Brooks, and Chrissy Metz, there鈥檚 been a slow-yet-revolutionary shift toward inclusivity by the fashion industry. Just in case you weren鈥檛 already compelled to love the skin you鈥檙e in, however, artist Sara Shakeel has just given you another reason with her jaw-dropping 鈥済litter stretch mark鈥 works.

Making creations that look just like they sound, Shakeel takes photos of actual stretch marks she sees in magazines or that are sent to her and transforms them into colorful, glitter-filled masterpieces.

鈥淪tretch them, let me know what you are made of,鈥 she captioned the below shot, adding in the inspiring hashtag, 鈥#madeofstars.鈥

As the former dentist revealed to Cosmopolitan, she got the idea after developing her own 鈥渟tripes鈥 following a recent weight gain and wanting to 鈥渇ill them up with something pretty.鈥

The collage and video artist gave even further insight into her art with a lengthy caption which explained her work, writing, 鈥淚 have never felt so powerful and liberated and so f*cking proud of my stretch marks in my entire life!!! From where I come from and live, to be on the chubby side, or to even talk about stretch marks is not something one is proud of.鈥

Clearly, she鈥檚 not alone 鈥 her posts boast more than 20,000 likes and counting. Shakeel marveled at the response she鈥檚 received since posting her artwork, writing, 鈥淚 have seen my stretch marks grow from the day I started putting on weight, I鈥檇 be honest even before uploading it. I was thinking, 鈥榃hy would anyone be interested in my concept of stretch marks turned into glitter or crystals 鈥 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!鈥
