In today's world where achieving the 'perfect body' is the norm, people are being body shamed for the smallest of 'flaws'. In reality, there is nothing that can be construed as the 'perfect body', either you're too 'skinny', or too 'curvy' or even too 'athletic'. You really can't please everyone, so it's time to start accepting and loving yourself, imperfections and all.

People have got enough of these online haters who hide behind the safety of their computers, and they've finally started to stand up for themselves. They're setting new perceptions for the world everyday. Following the example of beauty bloggers and models who post before and after pictures of their bodies (with and without flaws), brands like ASOS have posted pictures showcasing their models with stretch marks in several of its swimwear images.

Women need to be made aware that there's no shame in having stretch marks or cellulite on your body. Changes are happening, and one artist went viral for bolstering this change.

Cinta Tort Cartró, also known as Zinteta by her fans, uses vibrant rainbow colours to celebrate 'imperfections' and 'taboo' topics like menstruation.

In an interview with Yahoo! Beauty, the 21-year-old from Barcelona, Spain, spoke out about these issues after she saw that they weren't being addressed.

"There are many things happening in my town that I couldn't be silent on such as the male microaggression toward the female body," she said.

"I know there are countries that have it worse than here in Spain, but I couldn't stay silent. I grew up feeling sometimes out of place. I'm tall and big, so it's important for me to state in my art that everyone is beautiful and those 'flaws' are not that. They make us unique and special," she added.

Here, take a look at some of her work:
