An Australian Martini

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

CherryM (22)Born in Melbourne, Australia but spending most of her child hood in Rotorua New Zealand this beautiful Comic con loving Pin up girl has accomplished and seen a lot in her 24 years.cherrym Not only does she do Pin Up modeling she also has a line of clothing and her art work is amazing. Well looking through her Facebook page you can find a lot of her art work, photos and clothing.

When interviewing Miss Martini I found several interesting facts about her life and lifestyle.  Dropping out of school she decided to adventure into the body modification field of Tattooing and Piercings. It probably helped that she has a heck of a creative side. You can tell this in her drawing and T shirts she creates. Everything she seems to do she does with extreme passion.

After living in Rotorua, New Zealand for most of her teenage years she returned home in 2005 to Australia only to find that it didn’t work out. Kicked out of her home due to conflict with her mother she vowed never to return home again. Complication with her mother was a normal thing and Cherry spent most of her teenage years in and out of foster homes, but that didn’t stop her from achieving all that she has today.

With the help of her Old Step Dad and his new partner she got her life started again. Picking herself up Cherry enrolled herself into school graduating with a diploma in Arts and Illustration. From there Cherry became a freelance Illustrator. She has also done a bit of traveling.CherryM (11)

Steven: What was your  first Tattoo and if any what was the meaning behind it

Cherry Martini:  “My 1st Tattoo was a Tiger, Just a small one on back shoulder and i had my birth father in mind when i got it as he is Indian. I also wanted a tattoo more than anything in the world and would have gotten a pig riding a donkey if that were my only choice lol. I was 16”

Steven: It seems that you traveled a lot judging from your Facebook page, where was your favorite place/time in your travels?

Cherry Martini: “I love to Travel, I have been across from Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia then to Uganda, north Africa where with some friends I met on the way, we built a house for Orphans, got our van chased by a Gorilla Solider with a gun, Had our vehicle Flipped on a dirt road in the Middle of the jungle where baboons stared at us from only meters away! Got bitten by a shit load of Blood sucking flies and had one of our boys catch Malaria from them. Give lollies to villagers where we were swarmed by children who had never laid eyes on a white person before, let alone one with tattoos and bright red hair lol. Got held at gun point for just wanting to post some postcards And came up to a meter away from a wild Bull elephant with out knowing it till we were right in front of him! And survived with photos to boot! One hell of a adventure, oh might i add with only a hundred dollars in my pocket!! Lol”

I’ve also traveled around New Zealand, Australia and to the Philippines where I brought a shit load of anime stuff .”

Cherry Martini: “The Butterflies have faces of a girl in them and they are designs by Artist Martin F Emond and i got them on my wrists after he sadly took his own life. He was a inspiration to me deeply as a teenager and i got them over my wrists as i used to cut myself and with this stamp i promised never to do anything foolish again!”

She is … Jeselyn … Model and Overall Awesome Chick!

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Jeselyn is a heavily tattooed alternative, fetish and pinup model that has been seen on Model Mayhem, Zivity and on her very own website www.jeselynonline.com.  This self proclaimed Dance of Death has got over 200 hours under the needle and I’m sure hundreds more hours in front of the camera!

I have personally admired Jeselyn’s work for a long time and it was an honor to be able to feature her on Inkspirational Words!!

When did you start modeling and what first interested you about it?

I started modeling about 3 years ago. I had always been on the other side of the camera… and never thought about modeling myself. I moved down to Rhode Island and totally reinvented myself. I was then approached a few times and finally gave in. Thinking it was just a great ego boost and just a little hobby. Now look where it’s got me!

What is your favorite thing to shoot?

I go through phases. I was in a huge pin-up phase for a while, now I’m onto more fetish work. I’ll never stop any of it.  I just find something new and try to master it, then move on to a new style. But I always jump around quite frequently.

You recently started a website .. tell me a bit about it.  What makes you stand out from the rest?

I started my fetish/erotica website in the end of January. It has taken a few turns and grown and continues to grow. It’s lots of fun. I had always envied those who had their own site and finally took it upon myself to make it happen. I can’t thank my fiancé enough for all the support.

I’ve got a few projects started that will definitely make me stand out from the rest. Not only do I do artsy erotica or fetish work, I also have fun with it. The latest shoot I can’t wait to post – was me and another model, Sahra, wrestling the clothes off each other in Luchador masks. It was epic! I’ve also got another super secret project that in underway and should be released next month I hope!

Is there a group of photographers that you prefer to work with?

I, of course, always have my “go-to” guys; the ones that have had my back from the beginning; Greg Easton (www.gregeaston.com) and Dastardly Dave (www.dastardlydave.com). They both see the potential and give it their all to help me make the shoots what I want them to be. I always enjoy working with Tiffany Ann (www.tiffany-annphoto.com) and Dustin Genereux (www.dustingenphoto.com) too.

Do you think that tattoos have helped or hindered your career and how?

I have only been turned down a handful of times because of my tattoos. Most of the time I am highly sought out because of them.

Tell me about your tattoos overall, what they mean to you, are they just for fun, inspiration, etc?

Let’s face it; the only reason why people get tattooed is because it looks cool. Some may say that theirs has this huge meaning… yea it might, but overall, it’s because it looks cool and makes you feel cool/sexy.

My tattoos are for the fun of it. I enjoy either shocking the heck out of people with them or making them giggle.

I have pretty much every conceivable “owie spot” there is tattooed.

And I have a smilie face tattooed on my thumb for when I give you the thumbs up and then I also have “boob bats” flying around my busty portrait of the Bride of Frankenstein… why? Because they make me giggle.

Do you have a favorite?  Or a least favorite?

My least favorite is covered, thank god. Young and stupid, we’ll keep it at that.

My favorite at the moment is my Bride of Frankenstein portrait and her surrounding Boob Bats. But it’s always a tie with my Cthulhu (as Ms. Behavin’).

Do you have an artist that you work with regularly or do you like to sample more than one artist/shop?

I have a set artist at the moment, my fiancé who owns and operates Marco’s Tattoo in southern Rhode Island.  I have been tattooed by others and there are some I would love to have a piece by of course. I still would love a piece done by Dug Landry at Hallowed Ground in Portland, ME.

Do you have any more artwork planned?

Always. Most of the time I have no idea what it will be. Most of my pieces are ones that my fiancé draws up for me that I fall in love with. I have only asked for 4 of them straight up. My bird on my forearm was actually for a client, and they turned it down for a more old school swallow… I snatched that one right up.

What’s your next big plan for model-land?

Well, New York seems to be calling pretty heavily at the moment. So does Philly. One of these days I’ll get to travel. But having 3 businesses and a family can make it tough. I’ll make it work one way or another.

Just gonna keep pluggin’ along. Doin’ my thing.

What is one thing that people would NEVER guess about you just by looking at you?

I am a jump rope champion.

What do you want people to know about models with tattoos or even women with tattoos?

I’m (we’re) still a lady. And you better treat me (us) like one.
