Tonya Stevens knows about being under the gun. Tattoo gun that is.
Stevens, a former Mile Zero resident is looking to get Inked for her birthday and pick up $25K in Inked Magazine’s Cover Model search 2021.
“I have eight pieces and I’ve lost count of how many hours I have under the gun, if I had to guess how long I’ve been in the seat, I’d say about 40 hours,” she says about her love for the art.
“I’d be covered if I had a choice.”
This public competition is a different matter in terms of comfort zone, says Stevens.
“I had a handful of people send me the link, and tag me to enter the contest. It wasn’t something I was going to do on my own. I’ve had people tell me my whole life I should model.“
The timing of the competition is on point for Stevens as well.
“It’s my birthday coming February 25, so winning $25,000 and being on the cover of Inked Mag would be the ultimate birthday gift!”
Stevens moved to Dawson when she was 12, started school at Central and South Peace. Last year, thousands of tattoo models registered for their chance to be named our next cover model and be featured on the cover of the world's number one tattoo lifestyle magazine. It was an intense battle – but in the end there can be only one winner.
