Where were you born and raised?
I was born and raised in Hombeek, a little and quiet village in Belgium. Not much too see there but it has always been a lovely home for me.

Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
In my town and school there weren’t people that influenced me. Nobody was really into tattoos at the time. When I got in the hardore/metalcore music scene I started thinking about it more, and I guess that maybe influenced me when I was younger.

What made you decide to get your first one?
I wanted it for a long time. I told myself if I keep doubting I’m never gonna do it. So I just made the appointment and try not to think too much haha. I was terrified at the time, but I never regretted it, now I just keep going.

Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
The newest ones are always my favourite ones haha! So it always changes a bit. I love every tattoo I got, because they all stand for different experiences in my life.

How did you get into modeling?
It wasn’t really something that I thought of myself. People came to me and say I should try it because they saw some potential. I did some shoots, and photographers keep asking me so I guess that’s a good thing haha!

What or who are you’re inspirations?
My biggest inspiration is Micheline Pitt. She’s gorgeous, sweet, and very talented in everything she does. She’s also a make-up artist, something that I would love to do too. Making people feeling better about themselves, I think that it’s a really satisfying job.

Another big inspiration for me is the singer of Parkway Drive, Winston McCall. I can always relate to his lyrics, and they always helped me to get through difficult times. In addition he’s straight edge, something I try to be too in this poisoned world for 4 years now.

What projects are you currently working on?
At the moment I am in my last year of university. I finish school in June. After that I start working as a translator, while I will be doing evening school to become a make-up artist. I’m also going to join a new band, where I will play guitar. I’ve been doing that for years but didn’t have a lot of time recently due to uni. Generally I am going to chase my dreams and I secretly hope to find true love again someday.
