HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
My big sister Melinda would take me to auditions when I was younger but at the time it was not really working out for me until I was around 19 my friend Nevada would always tell me I should take pictures but I was too nervous to do it, finally I did and that next week was casting for Inked girls of Las Vegas from there more clothing and magazines and promo work!
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
Everything excites me about modeling from the location,makeup,concepts, clothes ect.. it's an art no matter what kind of shoot it is, it's always nerve racking for me but so fun meeting new people and the best part is when everyone involved is happy with the outcome then so am I!
DO YOU COME FROM A BACKGROUND OF TRAINING IN THE ARTS?
My dad plays the piano, I tried playing the drums (didn't work out too well haha)
And my older brother Leonard Jr is now a graphic artist, I remember him drawing and painting amazing pictures so I think it started from watching the two of them doing art that were so amazing to me it just stuck.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
My favorite types of outfits to model in are anything that can show my tattoos and also compliment the outfit.
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I haven't done anything crazy with outfits yet but I would love to do some, not that normal clothes are bad It would just be a fun and new experience for me.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT TATTOOS THAT INTRIGUES YOU?
Everything! For the last 5 years I have been working in tattoo shops, most of my friends are co workers or people I have worked with, I have had the opportunity to work with great artist and learn from them, the whole family atmosphere is amazing, always art involved, I get too carry their artwork on me forever, it's really cool that I can do modeling but at the same time show off the art they have given too me because without their art I wouldn't be a tattoo model.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I am a Go Go dancer, so I consider that to be an art form, as well as shop hand/ counter girl, some of the guys I have worked with like Twig Sparks, Jerome Swanson, Josh Bailey, and Sado have always helped me too learn more about tattooing and have always made sure I don't half ass on anything!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I love all kinds of music, my favorite artist I would have to say is 2pac!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I hate to say it but I love watching reality shows! I also like to paint and draw it can really put me in a good mood knowing that I worked on something hopefully someone will love!
