It depends whether they've been blind from birth.
I'd suspect that a person who has never seen would have a completely different way of difining what something looks like. For example, they have no reference for colours!
ETA: There's a blind lady who had an NDE, and she says she was able to see herself while out of her body, she says she knew it was her because she recognised the ring on her finger, so maybe blind people do have a reasonable idea of what things look like.

Dumb question but it has been bothering me for a while. How does a blind person see themselves? What does a human look like to a blind person? Please help me with this.

But feeling and touching doesn't really give you a good.....view? And what about skin color?
There is no objective reality separate from us
