Where were you born and raised?
I was born and raised in a city in the Midwest.
Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
My mom always had tattoos, so I think that is where my curiosity of the art originated. I just love the fact that my body is a canvas, and it is a completely original collection from anyone else.
What made you decide to take the plunge and get your first one?
Plain and simple… I was finally 18! Young, wild, and free.
Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
My favorite tattoo is my sleeve- still in process. It is a beautiful, vintage-themed sleeve by the incredible Liz Cook from Dallas, TX. Although it doesn’t necessarily have any deep meaning it is a gorgeous piece of art, and I absolutely love staring at it every day. This sleeve has also been so fun to get done! I have traveled all over the U.S. to work on it: Dallas, El Paso, and Detroit – so far. In El Paso Liz tattooed me for 22 hours in TWO days!! The outcome makes it worth every second!
How did you get into modeling?
Honestly, it kind of just happened. My Mom’s friend was a photographer who loved my tattoos and wanted to work with me. I have always been obsessed with fashion which led to my admiration for models, so I was excited to do the shoot. I had a blast and the rest is history!
What or who are you’re inspirations?
I am inspired by so many things! In regards to what inspires me to model and keep modeling, it is most definitely other amazing models and photographers; I am inspired by so many I could never name them all. If you are very interested to know, though, I would start by looking at who I am following on Instagram! Music and movies also play a big role in my inspirations for photo shoot ideas.
What projects are you currently working on?
Oh, so many things! My merchandise and prints are currently for sale in my Etsy Shop (linked below). Also, I am moving to California in October and have so much planned when I move out there! Working with even more incredible photographers, collaborations with some beautiful models, and some video shoots! Great things are coming and if you want to keep up make sure to follow my Instagram and Facebook fan page.
