A steel worker is forging a career as a plus-size model – using her surgically enhanced 50-inch butt.
Patricia Washington, 31, hopes to escape her tough life in a Detroit steel mill, where she is the only woman on the work floor.
Growing up in the impoverished US city, Patricia witnessed her mother’s murder when she was just eight.
But now, thanks to her voluptuous figure, she is shooting for a life as an international model – and has already got more than 150,000 followers on Instagram.
She said: “Working at the factory is living, but not living.
“For the past few years I have pretty much lived my life like a caged animal just being used to the same old things and not experiencing everything this world has to offer.
