Jess was born and raised in the States, from two Asian immigrant parents; Japanese mother and Taiwanese father. Her heritage didn’t start to influence her work until later in life, becoming important content in the imagery, intent, and imagination behind these pieces. Jess is a tattoo artist, illustrator, and receiving her Master’s in Chinese Medicine, who is interested in indigenous tattoos, herbalism, shamanism, eco-consciousness, cosmos, metaphysics, anthropology, and antiquity. She is looking to coalesce these understandings together, to protect and preserve these practices and bring more knowledge back into the present perspective.
