KAREN HILL

Please introduce yourself to our readers? Well, I’m Sara K. I live in Tel Aviv, Israel. I’m almost 34. I have a BA In criminology and MA in science information and I work as a freelance social media manager. But the most important detail is that I’m a proud mama to iç yrs. old Dexter (Pitbull) and 4.5 yrs. old Hooligan (Pekingese), both adopted. They are the loves of my life! Besides that I’m an active person, I try to work out at least 4 times a week, I also do Tribal belly dance for the past 3 years and I try to squeeze in some Yoga time as well- I’m a morning person completely, so I hardly go out unless it’s an important event, I much prefer staying home watching one of my TV programs or reading a book
What made you scant to become a part of the modeling industry? I have been in love with tattoos since a young age, I think about or 12. It wasn’t something you saw on the streets back then in Israel. There were maybe 4 studios and hardly any tattooed people, but somehow I was drawn to it immensely and started to talk about tattoos and piercings at home. Of course my mom was mortified. Anyway, one day I want to a magazine shop and found tattoos magazines and was in complete awe. And ever since that I kinda swore to myself that someday I would be in a magazine like that.
‘Alai do you consider to be your sexiest. attribute? My boobs obviously. I’m obsessed with boobs! I’m fortunate enough to have naturally big boobs but I don’t discriminate – love them all! Also, and I’m sure you might find it weird but I think being over 30 makes a woman sexier. There is something about the maturity that makes a woman more comfortable in her own skin and that’s hella sexy!
What makes you fun and sexy? I think being curvy and proportionate has always made me sexy. But, I definitely think that after I turned 3o I blossomed and really and completely loved myself and the way I look. If you don’t mind me saying so myself if funny as hell and even though I’m not easy going at all, I’m super fun especially when I’m doing things I love and hanging with people I connect with.
You are beautifully tatted. What inspires you to get a new tattoo? Tough one. It can vary from seeing a flash that I automatically love and want on me to months of planning. I usually don’t think too much, because I work with artists that I know for years and I love their style so 1 trust them with my eyes closed
What 18 your favorite tattoo? Again a tough one. I love them ALL! I super pleased with my sleeve, I love the colors, the design and everything I also really love my a small pieces on my hands done by my bff Maya Brant, they are a chainsaw and a butcher knife done in kind of a new skool style, they are very me so I’m in love with them.

What would tattoo would you consider your most meaningful?
I-low many tattoos do you have? Have you ever had a tattoo removed or covered up? Ida you have a favorite tattoo artist?
I did it for my sell Not because its ‘cool” or the thing to do. When started to get tattooed 1 had to stop modeling. At the tune there was no place for a heavily tattooed model in the modeling industry . So I had to quit for .a few years. Company’s didn’t want to hire girls with tattoos. At that time tattoos had a negative connotation to it and teas not seen as “classy or “appropriate”. 1 basically got tired of the modeling world telling me what t had to look like, and how much I had to weigh, and what to wear. When I decided to stop modeling and continue getting tattooed it seas very treeing and really helped me to hind its self and who 1 really was In the world of fake and plastic dolls. No,. as a tattooed model the world have completely been opened up about tattooing and I have an amazing career again. I never thought that it would become as main stream as it has I’m glad it has thought. I get a change now to do two things I love, modeling and tattoos!
What is the biggest misconception you think people have about lots of body art? For me being a very Heavily tattooed lemale rt can be Interesting t tilts to say at times. Thank god it’s gotten a lot better and more people are open to the idea of tattooing. I think that one of the misconceptions is that, how could I hove a job with all those tattoos, funny thing is, that I own a few different business. I do very well and I am covered in tattoos. Not everyone that has tattoos is homeless with out a Job. It’s obsured what some neot,le think ;About tattos and tattoo., in genera!
What seas the most painful place you have been tatted? hands were not too had, but my feet were really had Brad tattooed the entire top of one of my feet at a tattoo convention I had to sit very still and pretend that I wasn’t ditto watching linnet titian me!
For a first timer, where would you recommend they get a tattoo to experience the least amount of pain?
Words of advice for anyone that wants to get inked.
What does body art/ink mean to you?
