Watch these people get tattoos on body parts they're insecure about! View this video on YouTube As/Is / Via youtu.be This is Sarah, Oscar, and Steph, and they all decided to get a tattoo on a body part they felt insecure about. BuzzFeed Sarah has always disliked her thighs. She said she developed appetite issues after being diagnosed with clinical depression. BuzzFeed As a Chinese-American, she said she also sometimes feels pressure to have a thin physique. She said she began binge-eating out of boredom when she got to college and gained a lot of weight. BuzzFeed Then when she came back from a semester abroad, her appetite disappeared. Steph, on the other hand, has always felt self-conscious about her arms. BuzzFeed She has very strong Italian genes that blessed with her pale skin and dark thick hair. Steph makes Nifty videos where her hands and arms are always at the forefront. BuzzFeed Rude people in the comments are always commenting on the hair on her arms, suggesting she shave it off. Oscar identifies as a Queer trans non-binary person, and tends to draw a lot of attention on the streets. BuzzFeed Oscar uses a lot of chest-baring clothing, and said the chest hair sometimes makes people feel uncomfortable. Oscar wears a lot of loose clothing, low-cut dresses, and tops. BuzzFeed They wanted to get a tattoo that would ensure nobody fucked with them, while decorating their outside persona. So they went to super talented tattoo artist Ying, at Evil and Love Tattoo, in Brooklyn. BuzzFeed She's been tattooing for five years and is a strong believer in tattoo's transformative effects on people. Sarah's favorite Disney movie is Peter Pan, and she's always related to Tinker Bell's magical and sassy ways. BuzzFeed She decided to get it on the outer part of her left thigh. Steph wanted a Buffy the Vampire Slayer-related tattoo. She went with one of her stakes. BuzzFeed It was a very specific one called Mr. Pointy, that was mostly used in the earlier seasons of the show. And Oscar chose a tattoo inspired by a Tōyō Miyatake photograph taken at a Japanese internment camp. BuzzFeed Sarah said she also chose Tinker Bell because she doesn't take anyone's bullshit.

Meanwhile, Steph had always been a huge Buffy fan and thought her tattoo was a huge symbol of strength, girl power, and independence. BuzzFeed Oscar works as an activist organizing for immigrant rights, so the tattoo of a fist holding a rose breaking through a chainlink fence was a powerful symbol. BuzzFeed Sarah said she used to avoid looking at her bare body (especially her thighs), but said that, thanks to her new tattoo, she now has something to admire. BuzzFeed "It makes me feel proud that my thigh was able to be a canvas for a piece of art." Now when Steph looks at her arm, she said she doesn't think of any of her insecurities. She just sees a badass piece of art. BuzzFeed And Oscar has been feeling super empowered and affirmed while showing off the amazing new tattoo. BuzzFeed And that's precisely the point!
