Even though being a model with tattoos a few years ago would have been something weird, nowadays professionals of the industry look for real people who represent brands and, of course, models with tattoos are included. Male models with tattoos are a very specific modeling style and currently are very trendy.
Male models with tattoos
If you want to be considered a male model with tattoos you must have a high number of visible tattoos because if you don’t, you won’t be considered in this category: small tattoos can be covered with makeup. Agencies and other professionals of the industry will always have to report how many tattoos you have and each time you get inked you will have to update your photos. They are your cover letter, so they must be updated as well just like if you changed your hairstyle for example.
All you have to do to be part of this modeling category is to be a man and have tattoos. Easy, huh? Male models with tattoos are very trendy now and there are a lot of brands looking for them. There’s no specific age, size or skin color to be inside this category; the modeling industry has become much more inclusive. In fact, some of the most famous male models with tattoos are seniors, like T.R. Pescod, Anthony Varrecchia, Philipe Dumas or Eric Rutherford.
