Pin-up Memphis Monroe – Don’t you know it’s not polite to ask a southern belle her age?

Tell us, what made you think like … “hmm, I want to be a model” and when and why did this interest of yours emerge? Have you been interested in photography from childhood?

I kind of just fell into pinup modeling, always loved the culture and it just happened!

Photography is something I can respect, but I have no skills in that department!

Miss Pin-up Monroe, born and raised where? Now living in? And may we ask of a lady her age? That’s like a Gazillion questions right there.

Well, I am a southern gal through and through! Born and raised in the North Georgia mountains and I will never live anywhere but the south! Don’t you know it’s not polite to ask a southern belle her age? I am old enough know better young enough not to care! – Oh, well … ehrm, yes I know I apologize for that question ;)

Now we’re curious, how many tattoos do you have?

Hard to count when you have a full sleeve and partial leg covered. Way too many, but I love them!

How did you feel when you did your first ever fashion show or photo shoot?

I was nervous, but nothing a little whiskey and a few deep breaths couldn’t fix!

What is a Pinup Girl to you? Describe to us the essence of Pinup Modelling.

A pinup girl to me is someone who has class, and knows how to carry herself and still has some sass! love for era’s past is a must, too!

What best describes the Pinup and Rockabilly subcultures in your part of the world? Are those accepted subcultures among the public?

We have a great rockabilly culture in the southeastern US it’s small but very active. I credit a lot of Georgia’s Rockabilly scene to Garage 71 radio and grease inc magazine for always hosting huge events and keeping it alive

What beauty tips do you swear by?

I swear by freezing hairspray, bobby pins, concealer and a lot of sleep!

What is one of your craziest, most ridiculous college memories?

I didn’t go to college in the normal sense, I went to hair school to get my master cosmetology license. No crazy stories, unfortunately.

My motto is “We aren’t here for a long time, make it a good time”
