Interview: Ashi Monster

Cover Model: Ashi Monster Cover Photo: Kamila Burzymowska

How and when did your modeling career begin?

I think it was around 7-8 years ago when I started getting interested in photography and I didn’t have many models to pose for me and started to experiment with self-portraits. Someone saw those photos online and I started getting offers to pose for photo shoots.

Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

The one main thing is not to take every photo shoot offer from so called photographers because you can end up doing something you never wanted to do in the first place. Many photographers push models to pose nude but it’s perfectly fine to say no. Be true to yourself and try to find your style.

What else do you do?

I’m a tattoo artist on a daily basis and I run my own tattoo parlor. Besides that my passion is drawing, digital painting, and photography. I am also an animal lover as is my whole family so we always have a house full of pets 🙂

What inspired you to start getting tattooed?

I basically started getting tattooed after I already began to practice tattooing, so that’s one side of it. But I always really loved how a tattooed body looks, especially colorful ones.

Tell us about your favorite tattoo.

My favorite one is probably the one I had most problems with getting because the tattoo artist was living in Copenhagen at that time, but I was able to catch him at one of the Polish tattoo conventions. The tattoo is two pretty big scripts on the back of my thighs.
