Joey: Hey Heidi!! I’m totally stoked and excited to feature you as a Voodoo Doll! Tell us who is Heidi Lavon?

Heidi: Heidi Lavon is a very much alive human being. To those who know me, they know that I have no problem speaking my mind. I say what I think needs to be heard.  Although, I am very extroverted, I do know when to show some discretion. That is something my momma always tried to instill in me at such an early age. I think she knew I was the trouble maker out of all of her daughters. All FOUR of us. Youngest and most certainly the black sheep of my whole family. I cant think of anyone else in my immediate family, as well as extended that has done the things I have done. Or adorn their body with as much art as I have. I am a true lefty. I rock a rough exterior but I’m really just a “mooshball” as a good friend at work would call me. I’m throwing you out there Ariel Even one of my new coworkers took one look at me and told me that when she first saw me, she said she thought I was going to be mean.  ME? Not even close. A true visionary, and always ready to take it to the next level. Try me.

Joey: When did you get into modeling and what are your favorite shoots?

Heidi: I have been modeling for about five years. I had a photographer contact me on Facebook actually and asked me if I was interested in her taking my photos. At this time I had no professional photos. I was kind of nervous at first, but as soon as I got into the swing of things I felt like I was in a safe place. Since that day, I have taken my modeling career and shot it in all kinds of directions. Whether it be from horror, to lifestyle, to natural lighting, to implied, to anything alternative and tattooed related. My favorite way of shooting would be anything tattooed related. I have adorned my body with a ton of time, patience, pain, and good money. Money well spent I’d say. I am overjoyed to have friends, family, and people on the outside admire my body art. I have had the honor of meeting and getting to know my current artists and have them lay down their idea of what tattooing should look like.

Joey: What magazine cover would be a dream of yours to be on?

Heidi: Most CERTAINLY Bound By Ink. My homeboy Andy Hartmark is their lead photographer, and in my opinion, one of the best damn photographers out there.

Joey: Tell us about any new tattoos you have?

Heidi: Well… I am having my whole entire throat done tomorrow. Every time I get tattooed I always think thats going to be my most favorite…until I get tattooed again and claim THAT one is my favorite. Easily, my portrait of my passed beloved is my favorite. I say this because truly to me, that is the highest form of respect, love, and loyalty, and I am MOST CERTAINLY a person that possesses all of those traits. A tattoo that marks a special moment, feeling, or experience in time outweighs all of the other pieces that someone will get.

Joey: What would you say is your most defining feature?

Heidi: Physically? I’ve been told I have a pretty killer stomach. I work really hard on my core. I love sculpted obliques. Hard work pays off!

Joey: What actor would you want to play your love interest in a movie?

Heidi: Bruce Willis…. 20 years ago. HAHA!

Joey: What makes you feel sexy?

Heidi: Waxing my mustache haha! And when my boyfriend wraps his big, strong, tattooed arms around me. It makes me feel like a midget!

Joey: If you were a candy bar, what would you be and why?

Heidi: Probably a Snickers, because I’m always laughing and I’m a bit nutty.

Joey: Heidi thanks again, it’s a real pleasure! Any final words or shout outs?

Heidi: Sure no problem! Real stoked on my feature, and honored to be recognized! I think everyone needs a little recognition here and there for all of the hard work they put in. Whether its a photographer on set, a hair and makeup team to help glamify their model, and of corse the wonderful designer/company who provides all of the stellar wardrobe and/or accessories to help make the collaboration COHESIVE and successful! Special thanks to Chris Ferrill of Tattwo Apparel for sponsoring me and supplying some kickass gear for my upcoming collaborations. If you guys haven’t checked out his work yet, you SHOULD…gear supplied for all tattoo lovers nationwide!   Check it out on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, ETC!

Also, to my Lord and savior and my wonderful family for telling me if something makes me happy, to reach for it, and for never once judging me and accepting every inch that I am. I’m lucky to have a family that can look past all of my flaws, tattoos, piercings, dumbo sized ears, and colored and/or shaved head to see ME.
