Hello my dear friends!
Today I want to introduce Misscherrypie to you. She is a model and we had an interesting photo shoot due to the fact that she speaks mostly French and I speak mostly English. It was a bit challenging for me, but in the end we managed to communicate quite well and we did some awesome pictures. She is such a fun person to work with and she has a lot of interesting stories. We had a great long chat afterwards. Enjoy the interview and the pictures.
Could you please tell us something funny about you?
I am a huge fan of “My Little Pony”, I sleep with ten stuffed animals “MLP”, I have always one of them with me and I put “MLP” stickers in every apartment I go to.
How and why did you start to be interested in tattoos?
When I was 12 my father got a tattoo and I’ve know I wanted tattoos since then. And I got my 1st piercing when I was 14, I’ve always liked those kind of stuff.
When did you get your first tattoo? What made you do it?
I’ve got my 1st tattoo when I turned 18 and 3 days because the tattoo shop was closed during the week end (In France it’s not legal to get a tattoo before 18 years old). And as I said I’ve always wanted one so I didn’t really hesitate.
How many tattoos do you have right now? What future tattoos do you want to do?
I’ve got around 14 tattoos and an entire sleeve made of several tattoos.
My next tattoo will be a portrait of my parents on my thigh, it’s from a picture of them when they were 18, the day they got engaged.
Do any of your tattoos help you in any way? Do they give you inner power? Or do they remind you of something?
As I am a model it helps me when I am almost naked, they help me feel more confident and more beautiful . The more tattoos I show the more I feel good but I have also a lot of tattoos that remind me of people I love, for example I have the names of the members of my family on my arm but I am very emotional that’s why I have this big heart tattooed on my chest.
What is the most important tattoo for you?
I love all my tattoos but the heart on my chest is the most significant for me. And it is also one of biggest I have. It’s a big heart with a very complicated mechanism and the key is kind of hidden. It’s the best way to represent how I am on the inside.
How do people react when they see your tattoos? Do you have a funny story about this that you want to share?
People in France usually act surprised and ask why I have so many tattoos but here in Montreal, people feel comfortable and ask what they mean, they ask question about them. Once in NYC someone asked me to take a picture of me because of my tattoos.
And funny story: last summer I was in the metro and a little girl saw Rarity (one of MLP) on my arm and she came sit next to me and show me a book she had of MLP and started to explain that Rarity and Rainbow Dash (her favorite pony) were very good friends. I found it so cute I kept talking to this little girl for the rest of the ride.
Do you want to change any of your tattoos?
I like all the tattoos I have but due to my past relationships and the fact there my exes weren’t big fans of tattoos I think I made some on them smaller that I would have wanted. So today nobody can tell me where and how my future tattoo is gonna be.
Who is your favorite tattoo artist?
His name is Phil from Holy Tattoo on Sainte Catherine est, we became so close that I know I can ask anything for a tattoo and I am gonna have it. I like his style, we can say we became friends now.
What would you say to somebody that is not really sure about having a tattoo but wants one?
I would say that if someone is not sure about getting a first tattoo the best is maybe to have it done in a place that doesn’t show much, somewhere it can be hidden so that they won’t have other people look at it and maybe judge it.
And the last thing I will add is to be careful because once you’ve done your 1st tattoo it’s very likely you will want to get an other one!
