In the caption she attached to the picture, she said, “while in elementary school in Canada, I remember being made fun of about my tribal marks and asked if I got scratched by lions in Africa. The teasing got so bad that I tried surgically to remove my tribal marks.”
Linda Osifo added that she used to think that the tribal marks made her ugly and weird when she was still a kid, but now she’s been able to see how unique the marks make her.
“I felt the tribal marks made me so ugly and weird from everyone else around me because I did not understand why I had it in the first place!
“Now that I’m all grown and wise, I’ve come to realize how beautiful and unique it sure makes me look. True beauty does not come from physical attributes, it comes from what is within. Here’s to the tribal mark gang,”
