i-D and Grace Neutral on South Korea’s beauty industry

Grace Neutral is a tattoo artist and activist who has been modifying her body to create awareness to other types of beauty. Her body is covered in tattoos, she had her tongue cut and she even injected blue ink in her eyeballs to look like a pixie dream girl. She partnered with i-D Magazine and Vice to fly to Seoul and report on the country’s image culture, where tattoos are frowned upon, plastic surgeries are more common than going to the loo and the cosmetics industry is booming. The documentary has great footage and very interesting information. It is interesting to see the generation gap in South Korea, which is actually more of a Canyon.
