One of Malta’s raciest metal singers wants to be the cover girl of Inked Magazine, the go-to global ‘zine for all things tattoo – and she needs your help to get there.
“I’m utterly thrilled that I was hand-picked to be in the chance of becoming the next cover girl on the immensely popular international tattoo magazine,” Mikaela told Lovin Malta.
“At the moment, it’s at the group stage, and only one girl from each group goes ahead to the next stage. I am currently second and need to place first to continue through the group stage and stay in the competition and – who knows – maybe become the first Maltese to win the title?”
For Mikaela, tattoos are a central part of her being
“I really love the art of it to start off with,” she said. “If I had never taken up music, I’d be going for a tattoo artist for sure as I love painting, drawing and creating things. I also love the aesthetic of it, how it adds and becomes part of someone’s personality, the symbolism it may have for some or for others just how decorative, characteristic and representative of a person.”
And to represent her passion on the cover of one of the most prolific tattoo publications would “mean the world” to her.
“I’ve been having an amazing response on my photo session photos that I have been publicly sharing on social media and have been receiving tremendous support from a lot of people which fulfils me greatly,” she smiled. “I am also currently working on creating my own Patreon where I will be sharing full sets, exclusive information, footage, photos, music and more. It’s in the works and I cannot wait to share more details about this!”
