Miss Sophie: I got my first tattoo on my 18th birthday and I don’t think I’ll ever regret or get rid off it. It is a piece of script on my ribs, which says “Ewig die Erinnerung” and means “memories are eternal” in German. It is a timeless design and reminds me of a very important event in my life.Who would you most like to be photographed by? Any photographer who makes me feel comfortable and good about myself. I would love to do more outdoor shoots, I like natural light and simple poses. The pictures I first submitted were shot on polaroid film, so they are completely raw and unedited.Who is the person you most look up to and why? I always tell people that I was raised by two strong women and my Grandma and Mum have most certainly been the most influential people in my life. My grandma is my role model for being the most courageous, independent, kind and intelligent woman I know. Oh, and she’s a natural beauty, as well!What’s your favourite piece of clothing? Definitely my black vegan leather jacket! I’ve been wearing the same style jacket for years and the 3rd one I’m currently wearing is slowly starting to fall apart. I think a leather jacket should be a staple piece in every girl’s wardrobe, it is so easy to dress up or down and gives every outfit an edgy touch.
If you could interview anyone (dead or alive) who would you choose? I would like to have a chat with Captain Paul Watson, the founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. I probably love animals more than I love people and I admire anyone who stands up for the voiceless and fights to save our planet!
Black & grey or colour? Personally, I prefer colour tattoos, but I guess it really depends on the style of tattoo, as well. Colour can change the whole mood of a tattoo and highlight detail, whereas some styles, like dot work and realistic portraits simply look so much better in black & grey.
Which tattooist is on your dream list? I haven’t gotten any work done ever since I moved to Australia, but Emily Rose Murray is definitely no. 1 on my list! She’s the queen of Neo traditional to me and I just adore her dark, mysterious pieces. Eckel is on my dream list as well, I have seen a few of his pieces on my friends and they are just mind-blowing!
