"I felt it made me so ugly and weird from everyone else around me because I didn’t understand why I had it in the first place! Now that I’m all grown and wise, I’ve come to realize how beautiful & unique it sure makes me look."

"True beauty does not come from physical attributes...true beauty comes from what is within. Here’s to the tribal mark gang ✊🏾🥂 #TribalMarks."
