Vany Vicious is sassy, classy, tattooed, and sexy. Currently she’s based in Florida and has been modeling for over seven years. Her specialties are alternative glamour and grunge– and punk-inspired fashion. Her gorgeous canvas is already covered in beautiful ink, and she is always adding more. I had the pleasure of chatting with her, check out her interview below.
First off, are there any interesting tidbits people should know about you?
I am secretly a ninja!
How long have you been modeling?
Going on 7 years now
Where have you lived and modeled?
Just Miami so far.
When did you start taking modeling seriously and what was it that made you want to do it?
I started taking it seriously in about 2010. At first I wasn’t convinced that I could actually be a model, but when I started seeing everyone’s positive responses to what I was doing, I thought, “Okay, so maybe it is possible.”
What drew you into the alternative scene and what inspires you to this day?
Everything inspires me: people I meet, moods I’m in, and the experiences I go through.
What is your favorite genre of fashion? Why?
I like all fashion. If you are expressing yourself and comfortable in your own skin, then I salute you. I’ve always dressed how I wanted so I appreciate when others do the same.
How would you describe your style?
Edgy, tomboy chic!
What is your favorite item of clothing?
Ripped-up, high-waist shorts because they are comfy as hell and they make your butt look great.
Tell me a bit about some of your tattoos; are any of them more significant than others?
Most of my tattoos are extremely random, [and] a lot are pretty funny too. For instance, I have a slice of pizza tattooed on the inside of my arm. I’d say the only tattoos I have with meaning are my portraits. One is of my mother and I also have one of my brother on my rib. Oh, and of course my idol, RuPaul!
How old were you when you got your first tattoo?
I was 14 years young and stupid!
Do you have any go-to artists you want to shout out to?
Vic Vivid, Henry Only, and Ryan Eternal to name a few.
What’s your next piece of ink going to be?
As of now, I am re-touching my entire right sleeve with Ryan Eternal at FTL Ink in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Tell me about some of your publications/credits.
I have been published in Savage, Tattoos for Woman, Missy Ink, Southern Ink, Solis Magazine, and many others. I really can’t name them all right now.
What is the best place you have traveled to model?
Nowhere! I suck! Lol joking. I love New York!
Who is on your short list of photographers, designers, etc., that you would like to work with?
I am dying to visit Las Vegas and work with Mentel Candy again. I’ve always love working with Nx Photography as well . And a new recent favorite has to be Ohrangutang!
Tell me a bit about what you offer through your website, www.vanyvicious.com. What can people expect to receive if they sign up and grab a membership?
Basically, they can see me naked, uncensored photos, a merchandise store, and some videos will be posted there soon too.
What are your plans for 2014?
Just to take over the world, nothing toooooo crazy!
