Sky Claudette Soto, Model
What are your influences?
I’d say my look is “silent-film actress,” which goes well with what I do, because I’m a fire performer. I also do modeling, as you can tell.
Anything else shape your look?
I’d say I’m very gothic but old gothic, classic gothic. I also write dark poetry. Like, here’s an example: I foresee a serpent wrapped amongst your delicate flesh. I usually read my poetry in a very old-fashioned accent.
Jon Reigle,Freak-Show Performer
Tell me about the horns.
Mine are done out of virgin-grade Teflon, second generation. I used to have implants up to the fourth set; they were a lot bigger. But I got in trouble because I worked in a bar and I was going through a weird time and I let people get to me too much, so I took them out. It’s based on Pan from Greek mythology. People assume it’s about the devil, but it’s not.
How long did it take you to do your ears?
Six or seven years. If you don’t go slow, they just blow out and you wind up losing a lobe. But I’m more focused on my tattoos right now.
What’s your favorite?
My face. I actually figure that all these tattoos have made me a better person. When I did my face it was, like, people are going to want to talk to me. And I have to be okay with that.
Andrew Pickens, Chef
That’s quite a tattoo.
Yeah, I like this one. This is the American side. The other cheek is all, like, Far East.
Jessica Algeria, Insurance Biller
I know. I don’t even dance! I just decided to do it. I saw the other girls and thought, I want to do it. But as soon as I heard “Nice fucking tits,” the top went on.
Cass LaRosa and Tom Webber
School-Bus Driver and T-shirt Printer
Having a good time at Ozzfest?
CASS: We got engaged! TOM: Everyone was hugging us and high-fiving us, and we saluted with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s.
Will you get wedding tattoos?
TOM: I’ve always wanted to get a tattoo where half is on me and half is on my wife. But I’m almost out of spots. She’s nagging me about getting her name, but I’ve done that twice before, so I said, Nah.
What’s up with your eyes?
People say I look like Lestat, but I’d like to look even more like a vampire. I don’t need to jump out from behind corners and scream or anything. I just wait for people to see my eyes.
