Shelly d'Inferno is a tattooed model, fire performer, fashion designer, make-up artist and photographer. She has been involved in the alternative scene since many years back, and has graced the covers of several international magazines such as Bizarre Magazine, Skin Deep, Tattoo Italia and Advanced Photographer.
During early teens she experimented with photoshooting and discovered her passion for modeling, photography and styling, which she took on as a career after moving to London in 2009.
Alongside the already mentioned trades Shelly also designs and runs her own clothing company Heavenly Inferno, that focuses on recycling used material for new creations. Having made clothes since 15 years old, she also has a 3 year degree in fashion design. Heavenly Inferno was established just before she moved to London, the brand creates anything from punkrock streetwear, custom made stage-wear and creative costumes.
In 2013 Shelly was part of founding a new fire-group called Pyrohex and took on yet another profession as a fire performer. She practices the arts of poi, fire eating/breathing/body burning, double staffs, sai blades and angle grinding. Pyrohex have already performed at UK and France's biggest metal festivals Download and Hellfest, alongside many other events and venues.
As a woman of many trades Shelly tends to be drawn towards very creative and versatile styles, which we can see by not only viewing her modeling portfolio, but her own photography and makeup looks. Quoting her own words Shelly explains she could never be stuck in one genre and that she knows herself as a bit of a shape-shifting wild-child who sees beauty in a lot of things.

"Shelly is a cross between two of sides of the beauty tracks - Fairuza Balk and Christina Aguilera. She can scare you and charm you at the same time. A lot of fun shots here, plus energy that screams at you. Doesn’t always need to be overdone with lots of make-up, has plenty of strong facial features and a great smile. Gorgeous. My favorite for a How Cool yearly model."
Matt Muroz - Judge of HowCool.com yearly Model Contest 2010
