Noelle Onishi - Japanese Model, Translator and Artist from the DMV
Directed by Justin E. Dean
“I can feel the fire inside of my body. It’s like I want people to see what I see.”
Both my body and tattoos are art independently and they all complement each other.
Tattoos are still a taboo in Japan, but having them empowers me in a sense that I’m breaking the social norms. It’s like I’m having a stronger sense of identity.
