A tattoo model has spoken out about her experiences with trolls and the nasty names she's been subjected to throughout her life.
Amber Luke, 26, says bullies 'projected their own insecurities onto her' growing up and explains 'nothing has changed' to this day.
Amber, from Brisbane, Australia, has been getting tattoos for a number of years and now has over 98 percent of her body covered.
In all, Amber says she's spent AU$50,000 (£27,000) on her tattoos and has also undergone different procedures such as a tongue split, dermal piercings and eyeball tattoos.
Despite many people championing her decisions and appreciating the work she's done, there are of course many negative comments fired her way.
She recently spoke about them in an Instagram post where she told her followers: "BE A GOOD HUMAN."
She wrote: "Fun fact about me - I am Australian/Aboriginal and also have Chinese blood in me - hence my small eyes.
"I got bullied A LOT growing up - people loved to project their own insecurities onto me to make me feel inadequate.
"And to this day - nothing has changed... how ironic lol.
"I get called ugly, a degenerate, a scum, a waste of oxygen & also get told I shouldn't reproduce - on a daily basis.
"You think that it would hurt me, but I've gotten so so strong over the years of this torment.
"Society is a proper a**hole man, stay in your lane and mind your own dam business!!!!! The person you're scrutinising could be so catatonically depressed and your s*** opinion and judgment could just be enough to push them over the edge.
"BE A GOOD HUMAN - DONT BE 'THAT' PR*** OF A THING!!
Clearly supporting Amber, one person replied: "Keep doing you Queen - you're amazing."
Another added: "I think you're an inspiration and are so incredibly beautiful inside and out."
And a third wrote: "I love your individuality and you are beautiful! People are just envious of you! Keep doing what your doing and be you & live & love for you! You ROCK girl"
