Kylie Jenner isn't shy when it comes to showing off her body -- and that includes the giant scar running along the side of her left thigh.

The 18-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared a photo of her massive scar to Instagram on Tuesday, proudly captioning the pic, "I love my scar."

The scar can also be seen in a pic she posted on Sunday, which shows her sitting in a bed with her legs crossed while wearing a short dress.

While Kylie didn't elaborate on how she got the sizeable scar, the young reality star did open up about the injury that caused it during a fan Q&A in 2011.

"When I was about 5 my sister [Kendall] and I were playing hide and seek and I hid inside this really tall, enclosed gate," Kylie explained. "After a while when my sister didn’t find me I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out but it just tore through my whole leg. It’s smaller now though because I grew!"

The scar can be seen in a number of Kylie's past Instagram posts, although this is one of the first in which she's specifically highlighted the massive scar.
