Staci Castle is a true California girl. She was born in Vallejo and currently lives in Northern California and doesn’t plan to leave the state any time soon. Though very shy, she was intrigued by the tattoo scene and the lifestyle that comes with it from quite a young age. “I looked up to all the big tattoo models when I was a teenager, and I knew I wanted to be like them someday.”
A friend from the Sacramento music scene was her way in. Staci started doing live band promotions and photography for bands like Rob Zombie, Fall Out Boy, and Paramore. “Most of our bands were heavily tattooed metal heads. It was a lot of fun. I got some awesome opportunities.” However, she always remained on the other side of the camera.
It wasn’t until January 2014 that she decided to test the waters in her own photoshoot with Yellow Bubbles Photography. “I completely fell in love with it. It was such an awesome feeling that I couldn’t help but start doing more and more shoots. I finally decided to call myself a model and take it seriously as a career in July of 2014. I’ve never been more busy, tired, stressed out, exhausted, sleepy, overworked, (insert more words for needing sleep here), but it’s all completely worth it.”
Currently, Staci works with band promoter and modelling agency, Ladies of Metal. You can check out more of her work at www.theladiesofmetal.com.
