Meet the face of our June campaign Aleks. Aleks lives in Montreal and is represented by Folio model management. When Aleks came to set we noticed she has a little heart tattoo on her wrist, and after chatting with her for a bit we got the back story on it and thought it was too sweet not to share!
We noticed you have a heart tattoo what’s the meaning behind it?
My mom and I wanted to do matching tattoos! It took us few months to decide if we should really do it or not. We decided to do it inside our wrist, I did it on the left hand and she did on the right. Our meaning of the tattoo was to always think of each other because my mom and I are best friends, so when I feel disappointed I look at my tattoo and think of my mom. Obviously a heart was the likely choice.
That’s so cute, do you have any other tattoos or are planning to get any others?
Yes I have another tattoo. I did it few years ago and it was my first one, you can barely see it. I like when tattoos are discreet. I’m not planning on having any other tattoos. I’m not really a ‘tattoo person’ but the one’s I have mean a lot to me.
What advice would you give to a girl getting her first tattoo?
To think about it, but mostly the tattoo has to be meaningful so when you look at it, it makes you smile. You can’t do a tattoo just to be ‘cool’ or mimic someone else. It should be something honest, that makes you proud and stronger every time you look at it.
Now we want to see your tattoos so make sure to snap a pic of them and hashtag #suzyink
