About MeSorry to everyone for my absence, but at the moment I am going through some extremely difficult health problems & financial difficulties. As soon as I am capable of shooting again I will remove this notice & be booking shoots. For now I will be doing paid shoots ONLY, & at a slower frequency. Thank you for your understanding.
I'm Tianna Apelian...otherwise known as Tianna Tapioca, or simply "Tianna". Vegetarian for 10+yrs. Starving Artist for Life. Weirdo. Mommy<3 & Ex-"Wife". A bold, unique & independent woman with a big heart. One word to describe me? Unforgettable.
I'm an artist, model since 2009, a friend, a lover, a rockstar, a caretaker, a former club kid, a strong & confident female, but also a rollercoster ride of insane proportions.
I'm interested in a wide variety of photoshoots, from traditional studio work to more artsy other-worldly settings, and i'm open to the idea of nude shoots if they are artistic, fun and don't give off the distinct vibe of "exploitation", though I require payment for anything involving nudity. I have no problem with my body naked, but I'm not interested in posing in front of a car in a calendar as if it's my lover...not my thing. Too cliche, too cheesy, not for me.
Lately I've been interested in more editorial type fashion shoots, or some really edgy fashion/experimental shoots. I'd love to discuss ideas with any photographers who would be interested in that type of work.
I do TFP if it will enhance my portfolio & give me more experience, but if you want me to model something specific you have in mind or anything involving nudity, my rates are currently around $50-$75 an hour, depending on the shoot. I charge more for anything nude. I'm very open minded & am willing to negotiate, but i'm also a single mommy of a 2 year old, & I need to do some paying shoots as well to help make ends meet.
My Ethnicity? I'm half Armenian, & the other half is English, French, German, & a tiny bit of Cherokee. So I have a pretty different look genetically speaking, as well as stylistically. I also have 5 tattoos, two on my lower hips, a tiny kiss on my chest, & the largest being two roses on my feet. My ears are stretched to 1-1/2" with a smaller stretched piercing right above each larger plug, & I have my vertical labret & septum piercings as well. However, I don't generally wear any jewelry in my facial piercings anymore.
A Tianna Tapioca looks like:
an strong, exotic, urban goddess with street smarts & book smarts, who has a skinny body but a big booty, an undying love of Hello Kitty & Pokemon, and a passion for sexy undergarments, childlike accessories, all things neon, & the color black. Sometimes silly but always glamourous, & a closet geek with the glasses & Pokemon collection to prove it!
