A Shuswap woman is competing to become the new face of an international tattoo magazine but needs your help to do so.
Paige Reinelt from Sorrento is a contestant in Inked Magazine’s Cover Girl competition, the top prize for which is appearing on the magazine’s front page and $25,000. The competition is won and lost by how many votes each contestant is able to generate. Out of dozens of contestants in her group, Reinelt has made it to the top 10.
Reinelt, a self described “tattoo addict,” has 21 tattoos, getting one or two more added every year since she was 17.
“Every tattoo I have has a special meaning to them, each has a story behind them,” Reinelt said. “Most of them are Tim Burton inspired because he is my favourite director, and I feel his style represents my personality.”
Reinelt says that if she were to win the competition, the $25,000 would be put towards personal loans and to her children’s education.
“Being able to win a contest like this, in a way I would be able to hopefully inspire other women built like me to get out and do something that makes you happy,” she said.
Votes for Reinelt can be cast on her page on Inked Magazine’s website.
The final round of voting starts April 3 and ends April 9.
