READERS INTERVIEW: LILLY STARK
I'm Lily Stark, a tattooed model from central England. I got into modelling around 6yrs ago and love it! My favourite things to do are walking around in latex, pouting for pinup and having naked fun with erotic and artistic nude.
During my time in modelling I've walked catwalks, danced in music videos, gotten into magazines, played with snakes, been on some stunning sets and had a pretty awesome time the whole way.
But that's not the end of it! This year sees me starting my own vlogs on YouTube, where each week I have a chat and show off my tattoos.
What made you start getting tattoos?
I had always wanted a tattoo and a lot of my friends all had a bit of something on them so one day when the opportunity arose I decided to go for it! From then onwards I've never looked back and love having tattoos of things that make me happy.
When did you get your first piece of work?
I was 19 and it was at some place above a hairdressers, not the best choice looking back but I've learned since!
What do your family think of your ink?
My family are fine with it, they know it makes me happy and that I'm not doing anything that would hurt me so they just go with it. My mum and sister have since both got little pieces on them.
What Advice Would You Give?
Look into the tattooist before you go and have one, don't let some random person do it because it is cheap. Tattooing is an art and not a fashion statement.
'' I think Paperchasers Ink is a great way for people to see the different sides of the tattoo world as well as a good way for people like me to connect with others''
What are you going to get done next?
Right now I am getting my sleeves finished and then I'm going to get a thigh piece started to do with the other love in my life, Marvel comics.
What do you think of paperchasers ink magazine?
I think it is a great way for people to see the different sides of the tattoo world as well as a good way for people like me to connect with others
How many tattoos have you got?
Too many to count now really lol! The closest I can tell you is that I have 8 pieces on me so far.
Who is your best tattoo artist?
This changes depending on the style but I think right now I would have to say Mat Lapping of Creative Vandals.
Your favourite tattoo shop?
This will always be the shop I work in, Mr Personality in Sheffield, UK. The staff and customers are great and always up for a laugh.
