When Ariana Page Russell was diagnosed with dermatographia, she saw it as an opportunity in order to use her body to create beautiful designs.

Dermatographia is defined as a condition that, when the body is scratched, the skin becomes red and it rises in a way that replicates the effect of hives. Instead of hiding away, Russell has stuck to her artistic roots and used this condition to her benefit.

Russell has scratched intricate patterns and sayings into her skin. Once her skin began to turn red, she then took a picture of her work. It is touching to think that she has done this to herself in order to continue on with being an artist.

The end result of the art that Ariana Page Russell has created is beautiful. She has done an incredible job of not allowing a skin condition to hold her back in life.
