imagery and the way she was photo- graphed.
What music are you into? I love 40s and 50s music. I wish I could’ve seen those stars in their heyday, like Elvis and Frank Sinatra. I love Billie Holiday, Etta James, Little Richard, all that rockabilly stuff and Motown. I don’t listen to a great deal of new music but I like the alt/indie sort of stuff.
Do you enjoy pin-up modelling? Yes! It’s something I’d never really considered but it just seemed to happen. It’s a great experience to get your hair and make-up done and see the transformations; it’s just so much fun! I always used to feel re- ally uncomfortable having my photo taken but I’ve worked with some great photographers and teams so it’s been incredible! Plus I have some cool photos to show the grandchil- dren one day.
Is there a Mr. Rose? Yes, there is. He is actually Mr. Rose; I stole his name for my pin-up modelling.
Is he supportive of your modelling and ink?
Yes, he gets a kick out of it and he’s very proud. He shows me off a bit, in a nice way and he really likes my tattoos. He likes my creativity and is really encouraging of my artistic side.
What’s been your favourite shoot so far?
They’ve all been fantastic. It’s new and exciting and I’ve learnt so much from every shoot. My favourite memory is part of a shoot for The Chap magazine; we were posing on a vintage yacht on the Thames and two of the models dressed in vintage sailor outfits with their hair slicked back commandeered a huge boat and went sailing past our shot in the background, playing a beautiful little melody on the accordion. It was sur- real, like something from a movie.
What’s your favourite vintage find?
It has to be some original 1940s 32 Vintage Ink Magazine
romance magazines from a thrift store in Mississippi; I got them for a dollar each. They’re tattered around the edges but I love them so much. They have pin-up beauty and hair tips and all these fairytale romance stories. Reading them takes you back in time as they’re just hopelessly romantic.
What’s in your handbag right now?
Underwear…just came from a shoot, that’s weird, sorry. Red lippy, vintage sunglasses from America, nail var- nish, an iPod and lots of tattoo cards from the last convention I went to.
Finally, if you could design your own vintage shoot, what would it be? Oooh, it would have to be with an American trailer, with a 1950s Cadil- lac parked out front, candy colours, bunting, pink flamingos, candy stripes and just pure kitsch. Pin-up, cheesecake kitsch.
