NaTyMeTaL: Well my whole name is Natalia but everybody just calls me Naty and I am a huge fan of metal music so when I started modeling I started modeling for bands and promoting them. I started getting very involved in the metal scene so I decided to pick that model name, combining my name with the music I love.
NM: Oh well I have noticed that in other countries people seem to be more respectful or at least tolerant, they don’t mess with others, and over here people bother you a lot, stare a lot, yell mean things and stuff. In other countries culture is way different and better sometimes!
NM:Claymore, Handful of Hate, Time to Kill, Netherbird, The Dust, Quintessence of Versatility, Terrorismo, Ukrurku and a few more. It was awesome because they were the first to trust in my work, they supported me so I am very thankful they gave me the chance to model for them.
CE: You have a very uniquely beautiful look. How did you get your style? Was it an overnight thing or more of a long process overtime?
NM: Sometimes my photographers help me pick a theme and concept and other types I think of the theme so then I talk to the photographer to get more ideas!
NM: Mm that’s a hard choice, but I would say metal bands like: Catamenia, Agathodaimon, Satyricon, Graveworm, Dornenreich, Nocte Obducta, those because I love black metal. It makes me feel calm and I don’t know, gives me goosebumps everywhere. Also I love calm music like psychobilly, bands like: The Quakes, Mutilators, Frenzy
Well I have 12 so far. On my left arm I have a coverup traditional rose and skull. Then my pomeranian portrait in a traditional style. I also have a cup of coffee, a mernicornio (mermaid-unicorn) and a penguin! On my right arm I have a coverup in process that consist on blackwork and dotwork! Then on my stomach I have written “Black Metal” (I told u I was a huge metal junkie haha). On my right I have a coverup that is a dead bride with roses, keychain heart. On my back I have angel wings. That was my first tattoo, got it at 16. On a side of my chest I have a pentagram and near my ear I got a little dog paw!
NM: Hopefully travel to USA again or Europe, keep modeling for clothing brands and designers and working with new photographers.
CE: Thank you for sitting down with us! Any parting advice for models just starting out?
You are welcome! Thank to you for having me! My advice is: Don’t be afraid of being yourself. Be versatile, try new things, be picky when working with photographers. See their work first before working with them! Be confident and just have fun and be passionate about it.
