In this world there are many ways with which a person may face prejudice. For example, some are discriminated against because of their race, others their sexuality and some their gender identity. And I'm sure we're all agreed that in 2018, there is absolutely no place for this in society.
Discrimination can also be aimed at things such as hair color, eye color and sometimes even the way you choose to dress and personalize your own body. This is something that 30 year-old Sarah Gray has recently spoken out about to the media.
World’s most tattooed doctor
She has always had a passion for body art
And she loves her inkShe adores every single drop of ink that lines her body. On a side note, she also has some flawless hair.
But with all this, she still has been met with adversityHowever, Sarah’s positive outlook and confident appearance has not exempted her from her fair share of adversity and scrutiny.
Just like Pretty Woman

Wouldn’t even look at herAs Sarah told Daily Mail Australia, ‘They served all the other customers first and wouldn’t even make eye contact with me.’
How rude can you be?

However in that case, Sarah could see the silver lining.

But this was not the first nor last time Sarah would face such discrimination

Wait until you hear this

Sarah and her friends have faced similar situations before
Sarah has spoken out about her frustration at being branded a bad person because of her ink
Sarah did not expect to become a walking art piece
But now she’s a living rainbow
And the tattoo process doesn’t hurt her at all
