Tell us more about your career..
I’ve been modelling since I was 16. I do art on the side with a view to opening up a pop up gallery at the end of the year. It’s going to be my work to start with, painting and ink on canvas. Then I plan to introduce other artists.

Obviously you have a love of art and have lots of tattoos. Tell us a bit more..
It started in Thailand when I was 13. I got my ribs done by monks. I have always had a thing for tattoos and wanted them from a young age. I don’t believe in anyone drawing something and putting it on your skin. I have always drawn my own tattoos. Unless I have gone to a famous artist that has a unique style and let him put his art on my body. Apart from my ribs and ones on my shoulder by a famous artiste called Fundz.
In terms of fashion and personal style, who do you like?
Billy Huxley, I’ve always liked his work, along with his artwork and beard. Also Wiz Khalifa’s tattoos are an inspiration. I want the whole of my body done eventually.
I love Alexander McQueen and a bit of Hermes. As well as some more boutique brands that aren’t as well known.
Which lesser known brands do you favour?
One by One store in Soho have some really cool brands that people don’t know about. I like the work of Katie Eary as well.

You are well travelled. Do you have a favourite place?
London is ten cities rolled into one but ‘home is where the heart’ is in LA. It’s my home.

Do you have a favourite place in each city?
Has to be Mayfair for London.
LA; one of my top places is The Blind Dragon. It’s owned by Wade. You go through a dodgy car park and feel like you are going to get robbed. Once you are in the club, you walk through a freezer kitchen, grimy but you come into this amazing karaoke bar. It’s a hot spot at the moment in LA.
NYC; The Russian tea room.
What are your goals for 2016?
I want to get my head down at the moment and do a brand. My brand name is going to be called Whites By Marco Pierre White Junior. Jeans and t-shirts to start with coming out hopefully December.
