Lately we’ve seen the ink game or the tattoo industry get more deeper into the urban landscape. At first, just the rappers and the athletes but now the urban models are using their bodies like human canvases and when you see the pieces of art like Kamille Leai in the new Lloyd video, “Naked” or our new Web Watch Net Chick, Ashle Danger, all you can do is breathe in and exhale……whew!
There’s a new masterpiece on the modeling scene and her name ain’t Mona Lisa, it’s Ashle Danger. I got the opportunity to kick it with the homegirl from the original “Dirty”. You are now in the “danger zone”…..
Shadi Powers: Where are you from? And what’s your ingredients?
Ashle Danger: My family is from North Carolina but I’ma born and raised Jersey Girl, my ingredients consist of Black & Indonesian with a tad of Irish charm
Shadi Powers: How long have you been modeling?
Ashle Danger: I’ve been modeling since I was born, no seriously I have pics to validate that lol. But I’ve only been serious about it the past few months. Since I’ve finally graduated college I finally have time to focus on what I enjoy and having some fun.
Shadi Powers: Name some of the magazines that you have been featured.
Ashle Danger: Gorgeous, Straight Stuntin, Blackmen , Stunnaz, Skintones, Hip Hop Weekly and now the cover of Urban Ink with Shawty Lo for August. I’m also the leading lady in Maino’s video “About That Life” and I’m also a feature in Maino feat Roscoe Dash’s video for “Let It Fly”
Shadi Powers: How many tattoos do you have on your body?
Ashle Danger: All together I have 7 but 2 of them are really big pieces, I’m getting a sleeve done soon as my artist Anthony Cruz from Jerzey Ink is done drawing it up. My favorite piece is my Phoenix, the meaning behind it represents Beauty & Struggle, Flight & Fall.
Shadi Powers:I’ve seen you in some photo ops with a few famous cats and some infamous too, so I would like to ask you about a few?
Ashle Danger: Haha ask away
Shadi Powers: What’s up with you and Uncle Murda? Brian Pumper?
Ashle Danger: Uncle Murda is a good friend of mine, despite the name Murda he’s mad cool. He’s one of the realest rappers I’m yet to meet.. And no I’ve never slept with him.
Brian Pumper I met at a club in NYC, he’s a bit clownish, honestly when I was introduced to him I had no clue who he was but I had heard of the name . He had just met me and was talking about flying me out to LA, one dude from his entourage got mad when I said I’ve never seen one of his porno’s. So I asked him if he’s seen any of em, he said “I’ve seen them all” lol that was kinda suspect.
Shadi Powers: Are you involved with anyone from the YMCMB camp? Whose Malcolm Miles?
Ashle Danger: Um well lol Malcolm Miles is a very extraordinary man, he’s the VP at Cash Money. He’s a good friend of mine at this moment, who knows what the future entails. Have I dated anyone in the industry? No. Would I date MM? Yes if that’s what we both agree’d to , but currently I’m still single at the moment, so I’m still fair game to the Bachelors out there. They just better know I’m the Total Package and there’s big competition ahead of them.
Shadi Powers: Are you contemplating doing any adult entertainment?
Ashle Danger: The only adult entertaining I intend on doing is for my man in our bedroom when I’m no longer single. Lol I don’t find anything wrong with porno or strippers, do I watch them? Yes, if it for me No. I’m pretty sure someone would love to be a fly in my bedroom to see what kinda Danger I like getting into though, too bad. Haha
Shadi Powers: Any advice to other up and coming models trying to get published and featured in magazines?
Ashle Danger: My only advice is to have a game plan, get in, get noticed, leave your mark, then get the hell on to bigger and better things. Don’t be gullible there’s a lot of people that will take advantage of you, mostly men. I had a situation with my previous manager only after a month in which I had to fire him. Thank God I didn’t sign the contract. A lot of women allow these men to have full control over their brand, nobody can market you, better than yourself!
Shadi Powers: What can we expect from Ashle Danger presently and the future?
Ashle Danger: I intend on branching out into music as well as movies. I’ve actually been offered a spot on a few radio shows because of my quick witted persona but I have a large interest in being in Horror movies. The funny part is I’m a big punk, I’ve never even been in a haunted house. My Urban Ink cover should be out the last week of July or the first week of August. I’m also looking forward to working with clothing brand TITs(Two In The Shirt) on a special project involving pictures of me slightly nude lol. Horror films have been lacking bad ass girls with tattoos living all the way to the end so maybe I’ll be the first, I really wouldn’t mind action movies either, some of my fans know me as the Naughty Ninja haha. And I’ll also be having a website coming within the next month.
Shadi Powers: How can your fans follow you and all that represents your brand?
Ashle Danger: They can definitely follow me on Twitter I love interacting with all of my fans, whenever I have a bad day, they always know what to say and I love them for that. Twitter.com/ashledanger also they can add me on Facebook.com/AshleDanger for a more personal view of my everyday life or on AshleDanger.tumblr.com for random pictures, quotes and other things I find dope.
Shadi Powers: Wow! A living breathing, piece of art called Danger….
