Português

Entrevistamos o inglês Jay Read que nos conta um pouco sobre suas modificações corporais, sua relação com a moda e com o corpo. Confira abaixo a entrevista e a bela galeria de fotos com os trabalhos de Jay.

T. Angel: De onde você é e onde mora agora?
Jay: Sou de Birmingham, Inglaterra, mas passo muito tempo em Londres trabalhando, e também viajo bastante.

T. Angel: Qual a sua idade?
Jay: 29.

T. Angel: Dá para ver que o seu corpo é muito tatuado, mas você já experimentou outro tipo de modificação (piercing, scar, implantes, etc)?
Jay: Sim, eu tive alargador em uma orelha, mas ela foi costurada e fechada de novo, para eu poder tatuar as duas iguais. Recentemente, eu bifurquei a língua e a nova cobertura na frente do corpo será uma colaboração entre os tatuadores Xed Le Head e Matt Difa. Também vai incluir Lukas Zpira, que vai fazer muitas escarificações incorporadas à taguagem.

T. Angel: Dentes de metal – fale sobre eles.
Jay: Eu usei aparelho para endireitar os dentes por 2 anos; depois, há 3 anos, meus dentes estavam perfeitos e era hora de deixar o aparelho. Em vez disso, decidi remover os dentes e fazer estes sob medida. Eles são permanentes e nunca poderão ser removidos. EU NÃO ME ARREPENDO DE NADA!

T. Angel: Rosto, orelha ou palma da mão? Qual é a parte mais dolorosa do corpo para tatuar?
Jay: As orelhas eram as piores para mim até 1 mês atrás. Tatuei o pênis e a glande. A glande foi pior que as orelhas, especialmente dentro do meato uretral. Esta semana eu refiz tudo das mãos e lembrei como a dor é aguda, especialmente a ponta dos dedos; mas a glande é pior! Um grande amigo meu, Lucky Diamond RIch, disse que as orelhas eram a pior dor, ainda pior que a do ânus. Eu vou começar o ânus em algumas semanas, então vou poder julgar!

T. Angel: Você sempre se interessou pela moda. Conte a sua experiência com ela.
Jay: A Jilted Royalty pode ser descrita como marca de streetwear, mas as coisas não são simples como parecem. A etiqueta começou comigo fazendo peças sob encomenda há 4-5 anos e se desenvolveu daí. Eu tinha muito interesse nas roupas que eu estava fazendo e queria que a Jilted fosse disponível para um número maior de pessoas, então comecei a estampar 50 de cada desenho, em vez de só 1 peça sob encomenda. Isso foi há 2 anos. Desde então, virou uma loucura e o interesse se espalhou pelo mundo. No mês que vem, eu abrirei a minha própria loja na Inglaterra, também com várias marcas líderes mundiais de streetwear. Eu não quero contar muito dos meus planos para o futuro, mas acredite quando eu digo que tem coisas grandes a caminho!

T. Angel: O bom e o ruim de ser um modelo muito tatuado?
Jay: Eu realmente não penso em quais seriam as partes ruins, porque eu só experimento as boas. Eu não sou um modelo normal disponível. Só trabalho com fotógrafos e designers que gosto, em projetos e sessões que me interessam; mas ao mesmo tempo, não faço o que não quero em termos de pose, etc! Dinheiro não me preocupa. Eu vivo a minha vida deste modo porque eu amo, não é só para ganhar. Eu trabalho com qualquer pessoa, mas sempre nos meus termos!

T. Angel: Academia, bicicleta e o que mais você faz para manter o corpo assim?
Jay: Para ser honesto, eu ando tão ocupado há 2 anos que a academia é a última das minhas prioridades e dominar o mundo é a primeira! Eu gostava muito de MMA (mixed martial arts) há alguns anos, mas agora tem coisas mais importantes acontecendo e eu não tenho 6 dias por semana para gastar treinando. Eu faço o bastante para ficar em forma e eu me sinto no mesmo nível de qualquer homem vivo; então, eu estou feliz com as coisas como são!

English

We interviewed the english Jay Read, who talked about his body modifications, relation with fashion and body.
Check below the interview and the beautiful photo galley of Jay’s work.

T. Angel: Where are you from and where are you living now?
Jay: I am from Birmingham, England, but I spend a lot of time in London working and also travel a lot.

T. Angel: What’s your age?
Jay: 29.

T. Angel: We can see that your body is heavily tattooed, but have you experienced another kind of body modification (piercing, scar, implants, etc)?
Jay: Yes I did have a tunnel in 1 ear but i had it stitched and closed again so I could tattoo both ears the same Recently i have split my tongue split and my new front body tattoo cover up will be a collaboration between tattoo artists Xed Le Head and Matt Difa and will also include Lukas Zpira who will be doing a lot of scarification incorporating it all into the tattoo.

T. Angel: Metal teeth, talk ‘bout it?
Jay: I wore a brace to straighten my teeth for about 2years, then about 3years ago my teeth were finally perfect and it was time for me to stop with the brace, but instead i decided to remove the teeth and have these ones fitted, they are permanent and can never be removed, I REGRET NOTHING!

T. Angel: Face, ear or palm of the hand, tell us the painful part of the body to get tattooed?
Jay: The ears are the worst id had until about 1 month ago i tattooed my cock and bell’end, the bell’end was worse than the ears especially inside the japs’eye. This week i have been reworking all of my hands and remembered how sharp the pain is especially on the finger tips but the bell’end is still worse! A good friend of mine Lucky Diamond Rich said his ears were the worst pain, even more than his arsehole. I begin my arsehole in a few weeks so i can judge for myself then!

T. Angel: You’ve been always interested in fashion, tells us about your experience with that?
Jay: Jilted Royalty could be described as a streetwear brand but things are not a simple as they may 1st appear. The label began with me making bespoke pieces around 4-5 years ago and has just developed from there. I had much interest in the clothes i was making and i wanted to make Jilted available to a larger number of people so i began printing 50 of each design instead of making just 1 bespoke piece. That was 2 years ago and since then things have gone crazy and interest has spread worldwide. In the next month i will be opening my own store in the UK also stocking many of the worlds leading streetwear brands. I do not want to say too much about my plans for the near future but believe me when i say that big things are in the pipeline!

T. Angel: The good and the bad part of being a heavily tattooed model?
Jay: I don’t really think of what the bad parts could be because i only ever experience the good. I am not a normal model who is for hire, i only work with photographers/designers i like or on projects/shoots that i am interested in working on but at the same time i will not do anything i don’t want to do as far as the posing goes etc! Money is of no concern to me and i live my life the way i do because i love it not just to make money. I will work with almost anyone, but it is always on my terms!

T. Angel: Gym, bike and what else do you do to keep your body like this?
Jay: To be honest I have been that busy over the last 2 years that the gym is at the bottom of my priority list and overtaking the world the is at the top! I was big into MMA a few years ago but now i have more important things happening and do not have 6 days a week to waste training. I do enough to stay in shape and i feel on par with any man alive so i am happy the way things are!
