Where were you born and raised?
In a small suburb outside of Cleveland called Kirtland. I graduated with maybe 60 kids I’d known my whole life. The town is basically a cult.
Growing up were there any people that influenced your decision on getting a tattoo?
I was and am still a huge Brody Dalle (then Armstrong) fan. Tattoos weren’t so common on women then. Though she didn’t exactly have the best tattoos I still love her and she was a huge influence.
What made you decide to get your first one?
I wanted the same tattoo for at least a year, my mom allowed me to get one as soon as I turned 17. I was obsessed with AFI, so naturally it’s from the Art of Drowning album artwork.
Do you have a favorite tattoo, and does it have a meaning behind it?
My boyfriend hand poked a hobo sign on my wrist years back and mine means “bad dog”. A warning to watch out for bad dogs… I also love my Jason Kelley rebel alliance palm tattoo. I’ve got a bunch of Star Wars tattoos, big nerd.
How did you get into modeling?
Originally I just did a lot of hair and makeup modeling. Photographers kept hitting me up so I figured I’d give it a try. I love it and I’m still learning a lot from it.
What or who are you’re inspirations?
Bernadette Macias and Sabina Kelley are both gorgeous and wonderful mothers, and still on top of their modeling game!
What projects are you currently working on?
I’ve got a few magazines coming out at the end of this month (Inked Magazine and Inked Girls) and working on a few more for this summer!
