Never Afraid To Get My Hands Dirty

Where are you from, and how would you describe your life growing up?

I was born in NYC, and although I love the big city, I’m a bonafide country girl! I grew up in middle Tennessee, and this is my home. My mother’s family is from this area and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I grew up swimming in creeks and climbing trees. The natural beauty of TN and my father’s love of the outdoors paved the path that led me to become a wildlife biologist.

How did you find your way in front of a camera, modeling?

I had become very il with Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Babesia (malaria-like disease), and Bartonela, al from tick bites. As soon as I had beaten al of them, and had my PICC line removed, a friend of mine invited me to a shoot. I soon signed with EM Modeling Agency and the rest is history!

What do you like best about being a model?

I love to break the glass ceiling, and the stereotypes with which modeling is stigmatized. I want to empower other women to be al that they can, to embrace the strength in femininity.

Besides modeling what is the most important thing in your life? Do you have any unusual talents?

I am a model that loves hunting, is a wildlife biologist, a pole-dance fitness instructor, have taught Biology at a state university.

We all need support in life. Where do you get your support? What or who inspires you?

The women in our agency have all faced challenges and overcome great, and life-threatening obstacles. Each one of these ladies motivates me to strive for greatness and find my inner strength. My son and family are my driving force, along with my brigade of beautiful boss babes.

What do you think is the most challenging thing about modeling and what advice would you give to new models?

Don’t let anyone hold you back from your dreams. You don’t have to fit in to someone’s ideal box, you can break the glass ceiling. Be strong, smart, sexy, and above all else you must love yourself.

JESS MASCETTI

These days, plenty of kids grow up aspiring to become tattoo artists, but during the eighties and early nineties this was seldom the case. Jess Mascetti first fell in love with tattooing around the time when the ban was lifted in NYC, although it took over a decade for all the pieces to finally fall into place after she began getting tattooed by her soon-to-be mentor, Josh Lord. We sat down with Mascetti to learn how she wound up becoming a world-renowned artist and what valuable lessons led her to where she is today.
