Always great to stumble on fresh talent like Miss Tara Tied!!!
1) Can you share with us a bit about your background?
I am Maltese and Irish and have always lived in NYC. There isn't much to say about my background really.
2) What prompted you to begin a career as a model?
I have always liked pin up models from the 1940's and 1950's. I liked the fact that they were not like the fashion models of today. I liked the fact that they were curvy and real. I have always been in love with Bettie Page. The love of pin ups and the fact that many people told me I am very photogenic made me start modeling a little over 2 years ago and I absolutely love it!
3) How does one find out in life that it’s a thrill to be tied up? :D
I am not sure about others, but for myself it kinda just came naturally. I used to tie up my Barbie dolls when I was younger, leaving them tied up in nothing but their panties and heels. After seeing some pictures of women tied up I wanted to try it for myself!
4) You’ll be at FetishCon for the first time in 2011: what do you expect from your visit?
I am hoping to book some shoots while I am there, but I am mostly going to meet new people in the scene and have a lot of fun partying!
5) What is it you like about body painting projects?
Body painting projects are pretty fun! I like how I come in as a blank canvas and afterward I am a piece of art! I once had to stand still for 4 hours while a bodypainter painted a school girl outfit on me. It was totally worth it!
6) Is it amusing for you to do any Clips4Sale work? What has been your most challenging assignment yet?
I have a lot of fun shooting with producers who have their own sites, whether it be on Clips4Sale or hosts of their own. The reason I like this so much is because I get to do something different every day and meet new people. My most challenging assignment usually involves me having to be aggressive or dominant, which I don't think I am very good at.
7) OK now what’s your biggest fashion weakness… corsets? towering platform shoes? or any other? ;)
I love really high heels and corsets, too. Finding a corset that fits perfectly without hurting much is hard to do, but I have finally found one!!
8) What’s up with a future official website? Are you planning on launching soon, by any chance?
Many people have told me I should start my own website and that they'd help me start one up, but I really don't have the time to edit. Plus, I am planning on going back to school soon, so I'd have even less time for a site of my own :/ Maybe in the future I'll have my own though!
9) Is there a comic book heroine that you would like to portray for a photo assignment in the future?
I have always loved Batman and would love to portray Poison Ivy.
10) Can we kiss your nose at the next FetishCon (provided that you’re not wearing a hood or a harness or something!!! LOL)? We’ll also have this big pile of flyers to distribute…
