Cheeky ‘bum artist’ skirts Instagram nudity rules by ‘turning rear into scenic landscapes’
A CHEEKY Instagram superstar is skirting strict nudity rules by turning photos of her bum into scenic landscapes.
Artist and model Leah Schrager has earned 3.1million loyal followers with her racy “bum art”.
The curvy brunette goes by the name Ona Artist, and has achieved Insta-fame by using her bum as a canvas.
Instagram forbids nudity, including close-up depictions of fully-nude buttocks.
But “bum artist” Leah uses props and backgrounds to showcase her rear in a tasteful way – so Instagram won’t take the snaps down.
“It ultimately turned out to be a good way to get around the Instagram censors since it put my a*** into an art context,” Leah told the Daily Star.
“And while I’ve had multiple photos removed from Instagram, I’ve never had a #toysonapeach removed,” she added.
Leah only set up her Instagram page in 2015, but the influencer now has millions of followers.
She shares her saucy snaps using the hashtag #toysonapeach, which Leah claims represents her most popular type of post.
“I was doing photoshoots and I just started having fun putting objects on my butt and photographing them,” Leah explained.
“I immediately liked the way the toys turned my ass into a landscape or theatrical set.
“I’m constantly looking for ways to create what I call ‘Instagram classics’, which are photos that have a hook so they get more engagement.
“And #toysonapeach has been my biggest so far, because they are so liked and engaged with they help my growth.”
Instagram nudity rules – what's the truth?
Here's what you need to know…
Instagram’s rules are very clear that nudity is not allowed on the platform.
That’s because the app has a lower age-limit of 13 – so Instagram wants to make sure uploaded content isn’t too smutty.
Even some art isn’t allowed if the nudity is too gratuitous.
“We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature,” Instagram explains.
“But for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram.
“This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks.
“It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed.
“Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.”
One whimsical scene created by Leah features a prominent lighthouse in what looks like a seaside cottage – but a bum pops up from the bottom of the snap.
Leah, who is based on New York, says her fans love the image.
“People who might not normally have felt that positive about an a*** photo of mine have also expressed admiration,” she explained.
“Though I’m not sure my mother liked it very much.”
