What is your favourite thing about Missy/Ink Magazine?
There are lots of things to love about Missy/Ink Magazine. But my favourite thing is that they feature a variety of models. From tattooed vixens to burlesque starlets, Missy/Ink has it all! Missy/Ink also supports models of all shapes and sizes. Being a curvy gal myself I really appreciate it when independent magazines embrace all the beauty the modelling world as to offer!
Why are you drawn to tattoos and/or pin up?
I have always been drawn to pinup culture. I really love the classic beauty and subtle but in your face sex appeal of the 1940’s and 1950’s starlets. They just oozed elegance and beauty. When I was young I was naturally drawn to movies and music that weren’t of my time. My beauty idols were Bettie Page, Jayne Mansfield, Judy Garland, and Bridgette Bardot. I think that plays a big part in my modelling today. I love being creative and tattoos are an extension of that. I enjoy pinup, retro, and horror inspired art. So why not embrace that and get tattoos! I’ll get to look at art all the time and carry those memories with me.
Within your field, who inspires you?
There are so many talented models that inspire me! A few of my favorite models are Mosh, Scarlett River, Tina Tokyo, Chevy Piston, Cervena Fox, Raquel Reed, Micheline Pitt, and Masumi Max. They all are so talented and have their own unique styles. I am always looking forward to seeing their newest works!
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
Anything creative and geeky! Before I started modeling I was in school for graphic design. I didn’t finish but I did freelance for a bit. I would love to continue my training. I really like computers and technology so anything related with that would make me happy.
What is the best and worst experience you have had in the industry?
Best: In the beginning of my modeling career I submitted to be a model in the Viva Las Vegas Vintage Fashion Show. VLV is my favorite time of year and the chance to be in the fashion show was so exciting. I was chosen by La Muerte Apparel. I was beyond excited and it was a wonderful experience. It was my first big runway show. It was chaotic, fast paced, unpredictable, fun, and I hope to do it again. I learned a lot and met a lot of amazing women!
Worst: I haven’t had any really bad experiences. All of the people I have worked with for the most part are amazing and evolved into friendships. They only negative thing would be a couple of photographers saying one thing and doing another. If the shoot is for trade and we agree on what the expectations are then there shouldn’t be any issues. I just don’t get it when photographers don’t produce edits from a trade shoot. It has only happened to me twice. It just makes them seem very unprofessional and inconsiderate.
Are you skilled at any other artistic things?
Cooking is a passion for me. I would say I am a skilled home chef. I have a lot of knowledge of basic culinary arts and love learning as much as I can. I enjoy cooking for people and from what I hear I am pretty good at it! I like planning huge dinners and having a bunch of people over! Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday mainly because I get to be creative with food, cook all day, cook for all my friends and family, and eat which is always the best part!
