Artist transforms into legendary anime characters using body paint

Naruto was a truly global phenomenon, captivating a legion of super passionate fans who never failed to demonstrate their love for the anime. One of those most talented fans, makeup artist Janini, decided to transform into multiple characters in the show using only body paint.

The artist does not hide his love for all of pop culture. She devoted much of her Instagram page to her transformations into nerd-adored characters, like The Storm and the Black Phoenix.

Janini began by incorporating powerful heroines.

However, his real passion is bringing to life the greatest warriors in the ninja world created by Masashi Kishimoto. She started off by doing a simpler makeup modeled after one of her favorite ninjas, Sasuke Uchiha, and hasn’t stopped since.

In total, she represented more than 20 characters, among the allies and enemies of Aldeia da Folha. His most impressive creations are body paintings inspired by Bijuus – Kurama, the nine-tailed fox; Matatabi, the two-tailed cat; and Shukaku, the one-tailed monster that inhabited the Gaara Desert.
