Heildi, you have about 1 million Instagram followers and increasing by the day. Do you get recognized very often?
I love tattoos as you can see my skin is subjugated by them. I get intention everywhere I go depending on the outfit I choose. I post my schedule on Instagram about where I am heading, what I am doing so it’s natural to have few people visit the place and say hi but I will not consider myself absolute superstar.
Tell us about yourself briefly
I am currently living in Portland, Oregon. Here I started perusing a career as a tattoo model. I have worked with multiple tattoo magazines, tattoo product brands, and tattoo apparel brands. I enjoy going on vacation and shooting is my favorite activity outside my career.
Why did you fall in love with tattoos?
I started getting tattoos at a very young age. I had few tattoos while I was living in Alaska but after moving to Portland, I immediately started getting more tattoos. I love them because they express my individuality, freedom and they make me more beautiful.
Can you describe tattoos on your arms?
Yes, on the left arm I have ocean habitat featuring jellyfish, shark, small fish, tortoise, octopus and pearl oyster. On the right side, I have tribal women wearing wolf head, crow and iceman.
Why and how did you get into tattoo modeling?
I never started to be a model, I loved modifying my body with tattoos because they made me beautiful but as I got more and more tattoos, I started getting attention from tattoo magazines, tattoo product, and apparel brands. Things kind of fell into the right place for me and I started getting offers for work from the tattoo community. I am glad that it all worked well for me in the end.
