Age: 28
Profession: Full time alternative model

Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Ireland. My dad is Irish and my mother is Italian, so after a few years my mom and I went to live in Berlin and then in Italy.

Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
I lived in Berlin during of the fall of the Wall of Berlin in the late 80’s. I was very young but remember seeing a lot of punk and tattooed people, which drew my attention a lot. I always thought tattoos were a beautiful thing, and that my body was a blank canvas to be decorated.

What made you decide to take the plunge and get your first one?
My first tattoo was done when I was 14. I went to art school and my classmate had just started tattooing, but it was a bad idea because the tattoo was horrible. Fortunately I learned to get tattoos from great artists and my first tattoo, along with some others have been covered by my back piece.

Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
I love all my tattoos and they’re all very important to me. If I had to choose I would say that the heart on my chest is very important, because it made me fall in love with my husband who did it.

How did you get into modeling?
Berlin is once again an important part of my life and my decisions. In 2007 I moved to this amazing city and it gave me new some new ideas, so I tried to become a model for suicidegirls.com. Thanks to this experience I knew what made me happy and what could be my job.

What or who are you’re inspirations?
My favorite models and inspiration for my work are absolutely Sabina Kelly, Amelia Nightmare, Mosh and Ophelia Overdose. They are all great models, and I hope to be like them one day!

What projects are you currently working on?
For 2013, I plan to expand my portfolio with many shots with latex clothing. I’d like to go to London and other European capitals to work with photographers I love, and maybe a trip to LA.
