These animated GIFs capture the moments of direct tension of females altering parts of their bodies in order to conform to an idealized beauty standard or removing what they hate about themselves. This series is reflective of what is directed at young women through pop culture and the media as “ideal”.

Turn on sound to hear the audio, created through the use of mouth sounds.
