Where were you born and raised?
When you were growing up, did you always imagine you would be tattooed?
Yes, I was always fascinated with tattoos and tattooing.
Do you have a favorite tattoo, if so, which one and why? And, do you have any ink that you wish you could cover up or be rid of entirely?
I have two favorites, I recently have had a Japanese good luck kitty tattooed on my left ankle in black and grey from a very good friend of mine @tattoosbyhuyen. I feel very blessed being tattooed by my friends, so its extra special. I also have a piece on my right leg by @dointatsbj that is for my dad so that one is a favorite too. And yes, I have already had @dointatsbj cover some stuff I had done when I was younger nothing bad just my taste has changed.
What influenced you to get into modeling? Were you always on the path to being a model?
I’d say I set a challenge for myself, I always encouraged my friends to do it and being a makeup artist, I was always behind the scenes one day I thought I should take my own advice and try it so I did. Always challenge your fears.
What things do you do in your spare time that your fans do not know about?
Hmm I like to go bush walking with my dad, and I like to eat Milo or Nutella out of the tin/jar.
Some business do not allow tattoos in the workplace, have you encountered any problems with this?
Yes I have, I was hired as a sub-contractor at a 5-star day spa the owner asked me to keep my sleeves down and hands behind my back till clients had their eyes closed ready for their facials so they couldn’t see my hand tattoos or arms. Its bullshit.
What is your funniest tattoo memory?
Walking thru a shopping center and a guy chasing after me to talk to me about my black and grey work on my arm by @dointatsbj because he loved his work and follows him on Instagram he followed and chatted to me about his work for 5 minutes. I thought he was just going to keep shopping with me.
As tattoos are becoming more and more accepted, do you think even Hollywood fashion models will adopt a ‘tattooed’ look?
Yes, you definitely already see it on models and Hollywood actors which is great.
Are you planning on getting some fresh ink anytime soon?
Yes, my right leg with continue all the way up my side to my arm pit it’s a work in progress.
Who is your Instagram ‘Man Crush Monday/Woman Crush Wednesday’?
