Ash Soto was identified with vitiligo when she was just 12 years old. As her vitiligo started spreading, she started to feel embarrassed of her skin, specifically after someone asked her if she had showered in bleach. Now this 21-year-old isn’t ashamed anymore, she embraces her skin in the most amazing way. In her late teens, Soto made a decision that she would not let her skin hold her back any longer, so she started challenging herself everyday by walking around in public without a long sleeve t-shirt. It was these challenges that then caused Soto to turn her body into art, stunning and beautiful body art.
