Nollywood actress Linda Osifo has revealed that she once considered surgical procedures to erase her facial tribal marks.
Now very much comfortable in her body and look. She took to her Instagram page on Wednesday to explain that she usually got bullied as a child which made her consider surgical removal of the marks.
She posted a stunning portrait picture of herself and she wrote “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 Osifa explains further, “I felt it made me so ugly and weird from everyone else around me because I didn’t understand why I had it in the first place! Now that I am all grown and wise, I’ve come to realize how beautiful and unique it sure makes me look.
However, beautiful Osifo believes that true beauty comes from within as she dedicates her post to everyone with a tribal mark.
She wrote in the latter part of her post “Here’s to the tribal mark gang”.
