Here are words and phrases associated with bodies.

(Below is copied from https://www.thoughtco.com/body-parts-vocabulary-3079570)

Arm — el brazo

Back — la espalda

Backbone — la columna vertebral

Brain — el cerebro, el seso

Breast, chest — el pecho

Buttocks — las nalgas

Calf — la pantorrilla

Ear — el oído, la oreja

Elbow — el codo

Eye — el ojo

Finger — el dedo

Foot — el pie

Hair — el pelo

Hand — la mano (Mano is one of the very few and the most common of the Spanish nouns that are of Spanish by being feminine even though ending in o.)

Head — la cabeza

Heart — el corazón

Hip — la cadera

Intestine — el intestino

Knee — la rodilla

Leg — la pierna

Liver — el hígado

Mouth — la boca

Muscle — el músculo

Neck — el cuello

Nose — la nariz

Shoulder — el hombro

Skin — la piel

Stomach (abdomen) — el vientre

Stomach (internal organ) — el estómago

Thigh — el muslo

Throat — la garganta

Toe — el dedo (Note that dedo can refer to fingers or toes; it comes from the same word from which we get "digit," which can also refer to fingers or toes. If you need to be more specific than dedo, you can use dedo de la mano for a finger and dedo del pie for a toe.)

Tongue — la lengua

Tooth — el diente, la muela

¡Abre los ojos! (Open your eyes!)

¡Cierre la boca! (Shut your mouth!)

Él bajó la cabeza para orar. (He bowed his head to pray.) The possessive adjective is used when needed to avoid ambiguity.

Me gustan tus ojos. (I like your eyes.)

Acerqué mi mano a su cabeza. (I moved my hand close to his head.) Although English often omits the definite article when referring to body parts, they are usually retained in Spanish when a possessive adjective is not used.

Tengo el pelo ❤❤❤❤❤. (I have black hair.) Prefiero los ojos verdes. (I prefer green eyes.)

Mejilla, mentón, espinilla, (la) frente, (la) sien, muñeca, tobillo, palma, suela, uña, fosa nasal.

Other words I think could go here: alma (soul), rótula (kneecap), lunar (mole), pestaña (eyelash), párpado (eyelid, the verb parpadear, to blink, comes from this), and ceja (eyebrow)

❤❤❤❤❤ is a word that requires intent for it to be derogatory. It is the word that begins with NI**** that is derogatory. ❤❤❤❤❤ just means black and it always has. It is sad that people have to be racist in the first place.

Agreed. "❤❤❤❤❤" (to refer to black people) is old-fashioned and outdated at this point but it's never been commonly understood as a slur.

Yes, very outdated. Great observation. As a child of the 60's I remember is as common and believe MLK used it in his speeches. This is an example of language evolving, in what seems to me, a relatively short period.
