Tell us, what’s your favorite tattoo?
Definitely Wisky’s portrait (My dog) made by the awesome tattoo artist Ivan Goñas from Guatemala, means everything to me. He made me the piece at the Paradise Tattoo Convention 2015. Wisky has been by my side since 2006 when I rescued her form the streets. I cried like a baby when I saw the finished piece cause it was just too perfect.
What made you want to start getting tattooed and what was your first tattoo?
I always loved tattoos but was too afraid about getting one because of the pain and the risks of infection, but this made me look for more information about it.
When I finally got my first one I was 17 years old and I did not choose a good artist (because about that time did not know anything about how to get a good one) and he left me scars on my skin and a really awful tattoo. Bad first experience 🙁
A couple of years later after getting much more information about this art I realized that I had put my life in danger by getting tattooed by someone not experienced /without a studio, permits or adequate equipment. I got my first real tattoo at 19 years old with a good artist.
If there was one artist in the world that you could be inked by, who would it be?
I really admire a lot of artists like Dmitriy Samohin and Stefano Alcantara, but I would love to get tattooed by Sasha Unisex or Damian Gorski (awesome artists too).
Who/what inspired you to become a tattooed model?
I love Bantik boy. Her style is unique but I really got my inspiration from many models like Little Linda and Lusy Logan. I try to create my own style.
How long have you been modeling and what was your favorite shoot to date?
I started about 3 years ago as fashion model not an alternative one. But because of my tattoos and my height getting in an modeling agency was just impossible. But in the Alternative Modeling Industry, it does not matter and I can express myself and be transparent without being tagged or discriminated.
Favorite shoot omg I just can’t choose! I love every single one. Photography is one of my biggest passions but I can say that shoots with my favorite photographer Leonardo Avila are my favorite ones.
Do people ask you ridiculous and/or funny questions about your tattoos and what were they?
Does it hurt…omg the question that keeps going and never ends. I understand the fact that these people probably do not have any tattoos and that is why they ask but, how can you possibly think that getting needles all through your skin for hours does not hurt lol.
What are you going to do with your tattoos when you get old and your skin flaccid?
Seriously… well there is nothing I can do! I already have them. Maybe my tattoos are going to look weird haha but it would remind me a lot of adventures and awesome times in my life – so that is going to be great!
What did you want to be when you were growing up and were tattoos a part of it?
Of course – I still have a lot of clean skin that needs to be decorated. As far as my career or work… well I am a Microbiologist Tech right now and I am studying to become a Biotechnologist some day.
What do you do in your spare time?
Hahaha… I am a little crazy, I talk a lot all day. I love music, hanging out in new places and seeing movies. I’ve got three dogs and I love to play with them. I’m not a party girl so most of the time I go somewhere around me or I stay home and watch TV or play my PS4.
Tell us anything we didn’t ask you that you’d like our readers to know about you!
Well, I am a 24 year old girl from Costa Rica. I love animals with all my heart, white chocolate, nail art, shoes and clothes. I also love electronic, rock and pop music. I do not travel a lot but my dream is getting to know a lot of countries and different cultures. I am a Gamer. and love contact games like God of War or Resident Evil and every game that makes me think (strategy games).
