exclusive interview with Makani Terror by iva kancheska 09/12/2013
Hello Makani Terror! First of
all, it's a great honor to have the chance to share some of my
thoughts with you! Thanks so much for taking the time to answer some
questions for Skin-Artists.com readers. You're probably the most
remarkable person in the tattoo industry, having that amazing body
and incredible beauty...
You're lucky enough to be on the magazine covers and working with amazing people from the tattoo industry! I bet you're a great inspiration to many people!
Q: What made you to become a model?
A: Somebody ask me at a tattoo convention to make some photos for a magazine. And wow, so I got from my first photo shoot ever a cover on this magazine. So it started in 2004, people came and ask me to shoot.
- How did you get the nickname?
– My name is Hawaiian and means wind, makani=wind. And Terror was my favorite music band 10 years ago. So I mix it & it sounded cool :))
Q: Who was the most inspiring person that
helped you to get into the business? Did you believe that one day
you will be famous and happy for your success, or you just simply
followed the instructions given by your intuition?
A: I had never somebody who helped me, it was my own hard work :)), but I had never thought to get that famous. This is sooo amazing, thanks to my fans!
Q: Did you have any hard times, while you were starting out?
A: No, I never planed to be a model or to get famous and earn money with it so I had no stress. I worked 10 years ago as a body piercer and made my shoots.
Q: Now, you're one of the most remarkable tattoo models out there. Would you say that modeling is your full-time job?
A: Thank you so much for your words. That means a lot to me. Yes now the Tattoo modeling is my full time job and I earn money with it. But this took a long time, you need to be really good to get money for it. So I worked really hard!!
Q: You want to experiment with different
styles of photography, clothing etc. Do you have any favorite
A: No, not really, I love to be different. I really love high fashion because there is so much difference between me as a girl with so many tattoos and the fashion scene. But I also love the tattoo styled designs, like Sullen clothing. This clothing line is absolutely my style, for 100 %.
Q: You look gorgeous! Probably the most feminine note in your look is your long dark hair and then, your curves combined with an excellent tattoo collection. How did you achieved that look, do you feel inspired by someone? Any beauty tricks? hah
A: haha oh my god. No, not really. I had long hair for all my life and I tried many styles and looks. And now I stopped at Sullen clothing and other lingerie lines like Purrfect Pineapples and Montserladies.
Q: What's the sexiest part you're most proud of, when it comes to your body line? (com'on don't be shy) haha!
A: Haha, nice question, mhh that's hard. Hahaha. I like my hair and my eyes. It's so mean to tell this about yourself. I don't want to sound smug :))
Q: Being a model, must be fun. What are
the most interesting experiences happened on a photo-shoot?
A: I think the coolest thing ever was my magazine cover shoot with Rockstar Tommy Lee from Mötley CrÜe. It was really funny and exciting to meet a real star.
Q: Do you feel overwhelmed by the modern mainstream euphoria? What do you think that sets you apart from the other girls around?
A: Ohh I didn't know that I'm set apart from the others, haha, thank you so much. I don't know. I never look at the industry, I just make my thing. I stay myself and I really do my best at each shoot!
Q: Since you've been working on many different types of modeling projects, do you plan to work on something completely different than now? What's next? Any special career achievements?
A: I will be the featured model for some European conventions like Prague and Romania. I really love to travel around the world. I really hope to come in your town one day.
I don't have any other plans, I will do a lot Fashion stuff but nothing soo new!
Q: What's your best motivational lesson
for the beginners?
A: You need to build a really good sedcard at first, shoot for free with the really good photographers, do not upload bad pictures. It's better to have one really good shoot as 10 bad online. It could take some years to have the best look-book but that's life!
