Models With Tattoos - Can I Be a Model with Tattoos?
I have tattoos - can I still be a model? This is one of the most frequent questions new models ask us when they are starting out. We are happy to say that the answer is YES!
There was a time when a tattoo on a model was unthinkable. How times have changed! Tattooed models are everywhere including supermodels Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, Erin Wasson and more. With the most tattooed of them all "Zombie Boy" Rick Genest (gawd we love him!)
So, if you've got some great ink, don't worry! With today's computer photo software agencies and clients are able to remove or add to your ink with the click of a button.
While we wouldn't recommend going all out like Rick Genest, a few tatts here and there won't hurt - well, at least not your job prospects.
Here's a selection of famous models and their tattoos:
