Skin Condition as Art

Ariana Page Russell suffers from a skin condition called dermatographia. According to a recent article, ‘Dermatographia, which literally means "writing on the skin," is a disorder that produces hivelike welts on the skin when scratched. Russell, 29, always blushed easily while growing up, but it wasn't until her teens that she noticed she could draw designs and patterns on her skin.’ She uses a blunt needle to trace the designs and then photographs the results. The effect on her skin lasts for about 30 minutes. To read the entire article go to abcnews.go.com.
