Can I be a model with tattoos? Will tattoos hurt my chances of becoming a model? These are some of the most frequent questions we receive from new models just 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 many 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! Most clients aren’t worried about them, and with today’s photo software clients and model agencies are able to remove or add to your ink with the click of a button.
