As part of a state-wide search for the most beautiful painted ladies in Florida, Sailor Jerry rum and Inked Magazine held a casting call last evening at Sandbar Sports Grill in Coconut Grove.
Fort Lauderdale had a similar event last week. Next up: Key West.
Dozens of tattooed beauties came out to flaunt their body art and beautiful smiles in the hopes of landing a spot in the November 2012 issue of Inked and $1,000 cash prize.
Photographer Greg Manis was on hand to shoot the girls. All photos will be sent to the magazine's editorial staff, who will choose a lovely lady to represent Miami.
We could tell you more, but wouldn't you rather meet some of the girls?
Kerri Aultman from Miami served complimentary shots of Sailor Jerry spiced rum before posing for the cameras in the hopes of nabbing a photo shoot with Inked.
Dallas Wolfe came all the way from Oklahoma City, where she's a tattoo apprentice. Dallas loves her tats, telling us, "we have to open our minds to different versions of beauty".
Katie Blackburn, Miami, has 22 tattoos but her favorite is the Day of the Dead skull on her arm. "I love what the Day of the Dead stands for -- that no matter what, you're loved ones are always there with you."
Miami tattoo model Cami Li shows off her Beetlejuice tattoo, as inked by Paul Acker.
Miami's own Tuwanna Seymour lost count of her tats. "I have about 25, but they run together to form a body mural."
