Just over six months ago, Melbourne artist Frances Cannon got the words "self love club" tattooed on her arm, and shared the image to her 64,000 Instagram followers.

After she got the artwork, similar tattoos started popping up all over Instagram, starting a self-love movement.

Cannon told BuzzFeed the tattoo began as something personal, but she eventually decided to invite other people to join the club, creating a set of group "rules".

"Obviously they are just guidelines, not strict rules... self love means something different to each person."

The "rules" include being kind to your body and taking care of your mental health.

The message is all about understanding and loving yourself while also showing other people respect.

Cannon says she is surprised at how popular the club has gotten, and would eventually like to meet up with some of the members who are "loving and accepting of themselves".
