The tabloid Metro quotes Aldenryd on the development of her art:
‘I spelt small words and showed them to my friends as a party trick.
‘People who I showed were really impressed, especially after they tried to do the same on their own skin but couldn’t do it.
‘Lots of people question whether it hurts, but my dermatographia has never hurt.
