In Strange Experiment, Woman Goes Out Wearing Nothing But Body Paint

Do you suffer from insecurities? If you do, every time you go out you probably feel like you're putting your every flaw on display.

For some it can feel like the whole world is constantly judging them. The truth is, however, most people are probably not seeing what you think they are. One woman worked with an artist to try a little experiment.

Pashur House, a body painter, recruited a young woman named 'Julie' for a little social experiment. He had Julie strip down out of her real clothes, and he painted clothes onto the young girl.

Julie kept on only her underwear and a pair of nipple pasties. House proceeded to paint her body to look as though she were wearing a white t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans.

The fine details, the shading and highlighting made it look like Julie was actually wearing clothes. The plan was to send Julie out on her campus for the day in nothing but the body paint.

Julie was extremely nervous about the experiment. Though she's a very attractive young girl, she says she has her own insecurities about her body.

In high school, she had been part of a performance in costumes that showed her legs. The next day, she heard someone talking about how she had cellulite, and it stirred insecurities.

At first, Julie was very scared to go out in body paint, until she opened her eyes and saw the paint job. She immediately relaxed a little because she didn't look as naked as she felt, but she was still nervous.

After taking a deep breath, Julie went out. Upon first glance, most people did not notice she was wearing nothing but paint. She would ask people if they noticed anything, and only then did the lightbulb go off for many of them.

People were shocked but also said she looked great.

The point that Julie learned about the experiment is that everyone with insecurities thinks they're being scrutinized by others. The real fact is, though, that most people are not scrutinizing you at all.

You may feel exposed because of your weight, your scars, your features that you don't like, but other people are not looking at you with the same critical eye that you view yourself.

"I feel like I've conquered a really huge fear that I've had," Julie said to BuzzFeed. "Going outside wearing only body paint is really similar to having insecurities. You feel naked, or you feel all these negative things about yourself that no one else sees and that no one else understands."

Julie, with tears in her eyes, encourages people to be strong and not let what other people think matter so much. The only thing that really matters is how you feel about yourself. Don’t let what others might think get in your way of living and enjoying your life.

Julie says she wishes she could go back and tell that to her younger self. She would have saved herself years of anxiety.
