Hi i'm Jade, i'm a professional model, dancer and French Bulldog lover based in London I've has been professionally modelling for two years and dancing for over ten years.
I have worked with Kylie Minogue, Rachel Stevens, Ashanti and Primal Scream. I love changing my look and standing out from the crowd. I love music, dancing and fashion.
I am a creative person who makes the most of life. I am best described as the fine line between confidence and arrogance. I love meeting new photographers and the different styles of shoots they have to offer. I always have great stories to tell from each shoot. I can proclaim myself most whilst doing shoots; my energy and playful sides come to life :)
What made you start getting tattoos?
I've always admired heavily tattooed people, I never thought I would have this many but i guess i just got caught up and just kept collecting. My first tattoo was at the age of 18, and I loved it so much, but I was scared at first to get to many to quick because you always wonder what people will think but after a while I didn't care what people thought and I still don't lol. I started off by getting smaller tattoo's that could be hidden. Once I decided to get my first full sleeve I loved it so much my passion grew and now I cant stop.
When did you get your first piece of work?
I got My first tattoo at the age of 18 which was a classic tribal pattern which is on the bottom of my back, but unfortunately I am getting this removed as i'm wanting a full back piece now. I had my friend design my first as I never pick from a book.
What do your family think of your ink?
My family, love them both. Both my mum and brother have a few of their own, but not like me, I took it to the next level :). My mum has always said she's fine with them as long as they don't touch my face….but I cant promise I wont lol
