I believe that everything, even the most ordinary daily affair, is enriched by the lesson that can be gleaned from art: that beauty is often where you don't expect to find it; that it is something we may discover and also invent, then reinvent, for ourselves; that the most important things in the world are never as simple as they seem to be; and that the world is richer when it declines to abide by comforting formulas.
I model to inspire, to thrill, to shock, to satiate the curious and to breathe LIFE, true COLOR, ART and ADVENTURE back into the world of tattoo modeling. You can find any girl with "a tattoo" on the street, but I am more than just "a tattooed girl." I'm an artist in the flesh, with all the thrill of a rock star wrapped into a tiny, bright and sexy package.
As a working model and artist, I do PAID SHOOTS ONLY, *BUT* compensation for shoots can also include PRESS (such as shooting for a book or magazine doing a piece about me) and - since I'm such a fashion whore - clothing/attire from a fashion shoot for a company that makes clothing I desire oh so badly
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to book a shoot or request more information.
