In i-D’s latest video series, tattoo artist and activist Grace Neutral explores how younger generations are challenging traditional views around beauty and body image across the world. Through a number of dramatic body modifications, Grace has evolved from self-confessed alternative weirdo to actual pixie dream-girl with purple eyes, pointed elf ears, a forked-tongue, scarification and no belly button. Interested in ideas of alternative beauty and pushing boundaries of positive body image, the 27-year-old navigates us through changing attitudes to how we look. In the first four episodes of Beyond Beauty, we follow the tattoo-covered alien princess to South Korea as she investigates the ways in which Seoul’s youth conform and challenge mainstream beauty ideals. Although it’s socially acceptable for teenagers to have cosmetic surgery within its six billion dollar domestic beauty industry, it is illegal to be a tattoo artist. From underground tattoo studios to specialist club nights, Grace meets the young South Koreans embracing alternative ideas of beauty and discovers the impact it has on their lives.

I mean as American or European we have our own beliefs however for korea it’s different so we really shouldn’t judge.

Unpopular opinion but I dont think she's conceited. I think this is her "show" and she's expressing how she felt, what she gained, and how its inspired her to further her research

as she said "human bodies are beautiful" then why she had to get doodled all over her skin and modified her body? look at jesus, did he have tattoos?
it just bugged me that she acted so philosophically.

Her parents handled it really well💜 they really love their daughter and only wants what's best for her, it's of course heartbreaking to go through shit like mean comments and judgy looks but it still shouldn't stop you from having the body art you want

Dont bother about if it is fake, the content of the video is real and important. We are only people who likes tattoos because we find beauty in the art, just the same as other people who finds beauty in paintings/sculpture/flowers and all kinds of things. I have elderly friends from Korea who treats me like a goddaughter, although they nag and asks me why I do it, but still accepts me for who I am and not what I have done with my skin. I've also been to Seoul twice, I'd be the best of myself (well mannered and always smile, elderlies like it) and most of them are fine.

HaHa. A room filled with triggered White Anglo-Jew SCUM. Nope. Tattoos are for Animals. Pharaoh Tattooed the Jews, and the Jews have Tattooed you. Just like Korea is the only country in the G20 without a Porn Industry. Jews are the Worlds Pornographers, And they Pimp those they OWN. Go play among your fellow Slaves...Japan/China. The British Empire.The JEW wears the crown.

Western people will never understand the culture of the Asian people all those who come and comment ill about her parents and SK/Asian people please stop this nonsense. Our culture teach us to respect everything and above all Parents what ever I'll things you do it's disgrace towards your parents , Asia people are not like western kids / parents, leave their kids at age of 18 and children leaving at the age of 18. Our parents rise us love us teach us till they leave this earth and we take care of them . This girl might have went overseas for studies and was influence by Western culture
