Works of art displayed on her body and a personality that’s intriguing and attractive. Those are just a few facts about Suicide Girls Selina (aka Seesaw). Selina is a woman that you should keep your eye on. Since becoming a Suicide Girl in 2017, Selina has caused a firestorm with her modeling, and you’ll spend an awful lot of time on her Instagram account. We were excited to get an opportunity to learn more about Selina and gain some insight into her world.
How did you get interested in modeling?
Selina: I never thought I’d do any kind of modeling, I’m five feet tall, and never felt that attractive. I was in a really bad place in 2015, and a friend who is a photographer had an open casting for a clothing brand. I needed something to try and get my confidence back, so I went there, he took some photos, and I didn’t really think anything of it. When he told me the only photos the brand liked were mine, I was amazed. He asked if I would want to shoot again, so I agreed, and it all went from there. I never, ever thought I would be a model. It isn’t how I see myself at all.
Did you envision what you wanted to accomplish with your modeling or were you more spontaneous?
Selina: It was completely spontaneous, never something I chased. I have a normal 9-5 office job. Modeling was never part of my “plan.” I still have no idea what I want to accomplish with my modeling!
You’re also a Suicide Girl. How did that come about and what does it mean to you to be a part of such an iconic brand?
Selina: It’s pretty crazy. Again, I never thought they’d want me as a Suicide Girl. A local photographer I’d shot with a few times kept asking me to do a set for SG, and I kept refusing. Then I just thought, ‘hey, if it doesn’t work out, then it doesn’t matter.’ I didn’t post anything on social media about it because if my set tanked, I didn’t want the embarrassment! When my set dropped, and people like it, and then a few weeks later SG bought it, and I became a Suicide Girl, I was blown away. I’ve always admired Suicide Girls when I was in my teens. I just thought they were the most beautiful women ever, and becoming one would be completely unattainable, but here I am! I love being part of the community, I’ve made such great friends through SG, and I’m proud to be one.
Your tattoos are a work of art. What is your favorite tattoo and why?
Selina: First off, thank you! My favorite changes all the time, but my most meaningful is the script on my arm that says, “we overcome, we push ahead.” It is Modern Life is War lyrics, and I got it during a seriously dark phase in my life, so looking at it is always a reminder to keep pushing on.
Social media has bridged the gap between fans and their favorite celebrities. What is your opinion on social media, and how does it feel to be a click away from fans?
Selina: It’s great! Social media, of course, has its downfalls, people can hide behind their phone or computer, and write horrible things but on the whole, it’s a great tool to interact with people. I always do my best to respond to people that like my photos or send me messages.
What are some of your hobbies and interests?
Selina: I have a little pug called, Alfie, and he’s my whole world! I love going out to gigs, having drinks with my friends, the normal stuff! I am a bit of a homebody though, and nothing beats a good horror movie in bed.
Are there any companies/publications that you haven’t worked with yet but would like to?
Selina: Tons! I’d love to do covers for Skin Deep, Tattoo, Spirit, and Inked. I’m also talking to Electric Ink about shooting for them, which would be amazing.
What have you changed your mind about in the last few years? Why?
Selina: Work/life balance mainly. As I have a full-time job shooting around that is difficult, and I used to burn myself out by shooting all weekend, then working all week, but now I am far stricter with myself and only shoot if I love the photographers work, and I have the time. Everybody needs a day off!
What’s the biggest misconception about you?
Selina: That I must do some kind of porn/camming. I don’t!
If you could get a message out millions or billions, what would it be about and why?
Selina: Don’t judge a book by its cover, and treat others the way you would wish to be treated. I think those are pretty self-explanatory!
What can people expect to see from you in the future?
Selina: Hopefully, some magazine covers in 2019, and a lot more content for Suicide Girls!
