Shock Mansion: Thanks heaps for you time, how have you been?
S-j Whiteley: I am very well thank you, today am in the process of sorting a new MySpace page with my web design team. I get bored pretty easily!
Shock Mansion: What’s your favourite fashion item at the moment?
S-j Whiteley: Just bought these nude Christian Louboutin platforms! They are so hot; they make your legs look like they go on forever! I even have a Louboutin tattoo!
Shock Mansion: When was the last time you drove well over the speed limit?
S-j Whiteley: Well I don’t drive so I couldn’t answer that for you. I’m much more accustomed to being driven around! Hahaha!
Shock Mansion: What are you most likely to be seen drinking at the bar?
S-j Whiteley: Well I will pretty much drink anything! I will try everything once… or twice! I have recently got in to gin though. I feel like I have built up a resistance to most drinks now. But I like gin & juice, apparently it’s nicknamed the ‘panty-remover!’
Shock Mansion: What’s your hangover cure?
S-j Whiteley: Hair of the dog! Totally, I will have another beer the next day to set me right!
Shock Mansion: Ever broken any bones?
S-j Whiteley: No I haven’t actually; I have had sprains and burns, stitches and all of that showy stuff, never a broken bone!
Shock Mansion: If you could fill a swimming pool with anything in the world, and swim in it, what would it be and why?
S-j Whiteley: Champagne! The bubbles would be amazing and you could take gulps!
Shock Mansion: What influences you to get tattooed?
S-j Whiteley: Definitely my life experiences influence me to get tattooed. If I’m going through a hard time and want to remind myself to be strong I will get tattooed, or to remember a turning point in my life. They all influence me.
Shock Mansion: You’ve got some amazing art work, what are some of your favourites and do you have any future plans to get under the needle again?
S-j Whiteley: Oh man! I can’t really choose a favourite. There are so many and they all mean different things to me. But I guess the lucky cat on my upper left arm is a good reminder of my first trip to Japan and how great and different it was there!
I have lots more ink planned. I am finishing off my sleeve with Xam this year as we have been working in sections on it and I will be getting tattooed again by my homegirl Laura Satana at this year’s London Tattoo Convention.
Shock Mansion: What are some of your other hobbies besides ink?
S-j Whiteley: My clothing business of course which you can find at www.builtforsin.co.uk!
I took up boxing recently and I’ve really been enjoying that! I always seem to have a load of energy and pent up anger, sexual frustration, all of that! So it’s great to release it via the boxing, plus I love beating up men! I also drum in a metal band with 5 dudes. It’s so much fun; we get drunk, play some music, get sweaty and have a laugh! I can’t wait to go on tour!
Shock Mansion: What has been your worst job?
S-j Whiteley: Haha well I haven’t had many jobs! I suppose it would have to be before I was self employed, I was working at a rugby shop and I knew absolutely nothing about rugby! But I had a good friend working with me so we used to run rings round our boss at the time, wearing these tiny tight rugby shirts that were kids ones, by swigging on beers in the stockroom when he was out on lunch and playing Megadeth over the speakers when we had the shop to ourselves! I think you can usually make the most out of these situations.
Shock Mansion: If you were homeless, what would your cardboard sign have written on it?
S-j Whiteley: ‘Spinal Pap’. Like in Spinal Tap where their airport driver spells their name wrong on their card hahahaha!
Shock Mansion: Can you fill us in on any future projects/work you have on the horizon?
S-j Whiteley: I got a few more magazine covers coming out this year, as well as some special posters that will be for sale in my web store, plus loads more shoots, tattoos and surprises in store!
Shock Mansion: Cheers! We wish you all the best.
S-j Whiteley: Thank you loads for the support, it’s great to have the attention of some hot tattooed guys!! I love Shock Mansion! ♥
