Bodies are beautiful. All bodies, of all shapes, sizes and looks are being more embraced by the world at large now. And what people are loving more and more are what makes our look and bodies unique. What could be more unique than a scar? For better or worse scars mark certain moments of our lives. They remind us of where we've been and where we may never want to go again.
