Final Retirement Statement

THIS is why I’m retired. Do you know what it’s like to try to build yourself a life as a self-sufficient adult when your work environment is based on control and degradation? Do you know what it’s like to try to maintain a friendly, professional demeanor when your client/boss skates the most disgusting of lines? Do you know what it’s like to enter your career excited to be able to maintain your true personality and artistic self, only to have your soul utterly sucked out by the gigs you have to take in order to make a living?

Anyone who dares say we, as women comfortable in the nude and passionate towards artistic expression, asked for it, can answer to me. Anyone who dares say “men will be men” and “shouldn’t you have known?” proves him or herself to know absolutely nothing.

THIS is why a niche of what should be compassionate artists is full of perverts, users, and manipulators. THIS is why I’m finished shooting nudes, forever.

I leave this pseudo industry feeling utterly disgusted, regretful, and happy to put the past behind me. Some of you became wonderful friends. Most of you made me lose my faith in female self-expression, nude “art,” and the male gender.

Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you.

Many alternative models have tattoos, unique piercings, and the like. Any reason you don’t?

I thought about tattoos a lot in high school, but I never had the same aesthetic long enough to think any particular tattoo idea was a good one. Now I’m glad I don’t have tattoos because I love changing things about my appearance depending on the shoot. I like that I can play with different eras and styles and am not tied down to any particular aesthetic. I think tattoos can be really beautiful and personal, but they aren’t for me. And I don’t even have my ears pierced! I have started collecting clip-on earrings in the past few weeks though. Maybe I need to get some of those 90s style sick-ons as well!

this annoys me so much

if you dont have any modifications then you definitely shouldnt be considered an alternative model because imo that is a place where modified people finally have a chance at modeling. most of the time people arent even allowed to be considered because of a small piercing or tattoo so that is why ALTERNATIVE modelling exists

but whatever

Yeah I don’t see anything about her that is alternative…

I love piercings or tattoos and love that freelancing (or alternative modeling) allows for way more diversity. Different body types, tattoos, piercings, hair colors, heights, I think it is awesome. 

In fact I started a project called freelancemodels which you might want to check out. 

"Alternative" sometimes refers to girls with modifications (piercings, tattoos, colored hair) in terms of aesthetic, but is also often used within the industry to simply mean a freelance model. ”Freelance model” simply means a model who isn’t signed with an agency, and I think it is a term that should be used more as it encompasses and describes this side of the industry more accurately. 

I wouldn’t be able to model through an agency either. I’m 5’7” with  measurements 39-27-39. Freelance modeling isn’t just for girls with tattoos. There is a very very very small demographic of women who would even be considered by an agency, and they all have very specific measurements, height, and aesthetic. 

In fact, I think freelancing is a good option even for girls that ARE agency standard. There are a lot of problems with agencies, and being freelance is empowering and awesome. 

In other words, why freelancing is awesome is because of diversity. That diversity includes people with and without tattoos!

FINALLY! Someone gets it!

there are a lot of terms out there to describe what we do:

art models

alternative models

alt models

unsigned models

nude models

glamour models

but I sincerely think the best, most encompassing and descriptive term we can use is freelance models. there are such a range of looks,…
