Who's that Girl? - Patton



24 year old Patton may be better known to many as Patton Suicide of suicidegirls.com but there's a lot more to her than her alternative pin up persona. Patton currently lives in Columbus, Ohio where by day she works two jobs - one in a warehouse and the other as a body piercer at Olde North Tattoo. In her spare time she dabbles with alternative modelling, reading, painting, crafts, travelling and even hanging around doing suspensions. Her white blonde hair & distinct features have ensured she remains unforgettable in the alt model world.





Do you see yourself as Model? 

"Not really, I'm just doing the same things every woman does at home in front of the mirror."



When did you become involved in modelling and what do you love about it? 

"A few years ago; It's fun to play dress-up and see the result, sometimes it still shocks me to see the result, it's often hard to remember that it's me in the photos. I've been really, really lucky to be able to work with such talented photographers, each one brings out a different side of me. I like to see how far I can push myself to get into the different ideas!"










What do you admire in other women?

"I've always admired any woman who takes the time to put themselves together and present themselves respectfully."




Inspirations?

My momma, Judy Pezdir, Edie Sedgwick, Marlene Dietrich





Who is Patton?

"I got the name from Mike Patton, one of my favorite performers."





Are you a fashion brands girl or do you just wear what you like or
whats comfortable?

"I'm not really into brands, I think good style is more about taking different things and applying them to an aesthetic that's appealing to you. I wear whats ultimately comfortable to me, I like what I like, . . if I end up looking like a weirdo. . so be it! haha"




Who would you say is your style icon?
  

"Probably Marlene Dietrich. She always did whatever she wanted, and kept it sexy and classy."





Have you considered a career in fashion modelling?

"If it comes along, it comes along. I take each opportunity as it comes. If it's meant to happen, it will."





Aspirations?


"to live my life exactly the way I want, and be a positive influence."





What would you like to do in the future? 

"There are still a ton of photographers and models I'd love to work with, and I have a plethora of ideas as far as that goes. I'm also really excited for our tattoo studio we just opened, Olde North Tattoo. I work with a bunch of really talented and incredibly entertaining artists. I love going to work everyday, I have the best job I could possibly ask for!"










What's your take on life and what advice would give any of your fans?

"I try to have fun on a daily basis regardless of what I'm doing, and I hardly take anything seriously. Learn to live instead of killing time and find a way to do all of the things you want to do!"
