1. What made you want to join the modeling industry? I’ve been modeling on and off since I was 3 years old. I always had a big smile and wanted to show it off lol. It’s been about 20 years since I’ve explored modeling again, as my tattooed and pierced self, and I love it now more than ever!

2. How old were you when you got your first tattoo? What was it? I was 15 years old! I got the Chinese symbol for Love on my side. Everyone was doing Chinese symbols at the time and it was the first and last time I got a tattoo that was a trend. But it’s my first and I refuse to cover it, even though it’s the cheesiest thing ever

3. Do people treat you differently because of your tattoos? Absolutely. I’m pretty tatted so I’ve had my fair share of job rejections, looks from older people, etc. But it balances out. For every person that said I needed a more cookie cutter look, 10 people have loved my creativity and uniqueness. People are always grabbing my arm to see my tattoos since they are pretty involved and contain a TON of Nicktoons which is always fun when people reminisce about their childhood with me. Nobody can see past my tattoos…but it’s all a matter of perspective how they make you feel
