Name Angelique Robles

Age 30

Location Rancho Cucamonga CA

1. What made you want to join the modeling industry? I don't know if you can say I "joined" the modeling industry lol but I love not being your "conventional" tattooed model. I'm a plus size girl, I love tattoos and I love being dolled up and photographed.


2. How old were you when you got your first tattoo? What was it? I was 18, in college in Las Vegas. Go UNLV rebels! Haha. Bored one night and right across from my dorm was a tattoo shop. I got 3 stars tattooed on my wrist which were done horribly and are now covered.


3. Do people treat you differently because of your tattoos? People treat me very differently because of my tattoos. They don't expect someone so buttoned up to be underneath them. My outside may be big hair, make up and tattoos.. But my insides are a little old lady wearing Chanel and pearls.


4. Who is/are your favorite tattoo artist(s)? I have four! Hi-Tone located in West Covina, Neil Wilson at Six feet under in upland Ca, and Frank and Fred at Inkslingers in Alhambra,CA


5. Where do you get your tattoo ideas from? Mostly from things I've been obsessed with most of my life or from music, life experiences I want to document permanently. I have a lot of tattoos in remembrance of my quadruplets that I gave birth to prematurely and did not survive.


6. What are some of your favorite things to do? Why? I'm such a home body. I've spent a lot of time creating a beautiful place of peace for me and my husband. So we tend to stay home and watch movies a lot!


7. Do you have a favorite location you’ve always wanted to do a photoshoot at? Care to tell?! I've always wanted to shoot at Disneyland! I'm a huge Disney freak, so that would just be the ultimate place for me to shoot.


8. If you could shoot with any photographer in the world who would it be? Why? I love my photographer Ryan Wolvoored, but I would probably say Gilles BenSimon. I've followed his work for years and it's just breathtaking!


9. Have any secret beauty products you’d like to share to all the other ladies out there? I know it sounds Weird, but If you have really oily skin, dabbing your face before you apply your make up with Milk of magnesia will reduce shine ALL day long!


10. Do you have any future modeling goals or plans? I would love to collaborate with Torrid or Lane Bryant on a photo shoot. Growing up I hardly had any places to shop for plus size clothing besides those stores, and it would be a dream come true.


Tell us something nobody would know about you! I didn't grow up with a mom in my house, just my dad and older brother. So my dad actually styled my hair every morning for school until I was in 7th/8th grade.
