InkSpired Magazine: How and when did your modeling career begin? Andreea Rosse: I’ve been involved in this industry for the past 8 years, but as a retoucher. Many of the photographers I worked with kept telling me I should model, and eventually I did. I loved the feedback I received, and now it’s something that I do as often as I can. InkSpired Magazine: Do you have any advice for aspiring models? Andreea Rosse: Yes. What I learned is that you need to be constant, and you need to work hard for what you want.

I have been doing this for many years now, and I love it. I got the chance to work with and for so many talented photographers from all around the world. And it helped me understand better what I should and should not do as a model, as well as retouch my own images. InkSpired Magazine: What inspired you to start getting tattooed?

Andreea Rosse: It’s actually the first, the one I mentioned above. It was done a couple of months after my grandmother passed away. I was raised by her, she’s the one that I called and considered my mother. I chose to do a guardian angel holding a baby, because that’s wha BYX[YK[HH]ۈ^BX[X^HHX]x&\˜[^\\H HZY[[X[›YKX[H[H\HYH]]Y]\HH[YH]Y]YX[›]XYK[ \H\[\[\L[\YXY^[KB
