For those who want to be models of tattoos, I would say that today is quite easy to be “model”, anyone can say that, but being a professional is very difficult. I have done many jobs and can not say I am a professional because I do not live it. It is a fantasy world, but very difficult where contacts are essential. But I guess this happens in many areas of life, so it is best to take it as a hobby and have fun while posas. Enjoy is fundamental, take a good memory and smile.
