Our 1st Judge announcement is…..
Sabina Kelley has established herself as a true, modern day, pinup and icon.
With a wide international presence, she has graced dozens of magazine covers as well as major ad campaigns, television, music videos, calendars, and so much more. She is highly respected in her field and has been sought out by some of the top photographers in the business including David LaChapelle and the legendary, Bunny Yeager.
Sabina has been modeling professionally for over 15 years and dancing since the age of two. She is professionally trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and pointe. She went from a small town ballerina to a big time Las Vegas showgirl performing in “Jubilee” for 2 years at Ballys Hotel, and guest headlined for 1 year in the show “PinUp”, at the Stratosphere casino, where she was the first heavily tattooed showgirl to headline on the Las Vegas strip.
While modeling with a lot of tattoos goes against the industry norms, Sabina has been very successful in the mainstream-modeling world. Standing at a statuesque 5’10″ with platinum blonde hair, gorgeous features, and tattoos, she has gained the respect of many in the industry. Her success is due in part to her incredible versatility. She is the best when it comes to pinup modeling, but also specializes in fashion, glamour, swimsuit, and lingerie shoots. Sabina shows the world that you can be heavily tattooed and still be beautiful, classy, and sexy. She loves to push the boundaries and take tattoos to whole new level in the mainstream fashion world.
Sabina was also a permanent judge on the TV Show “Best Ink” on Oxygen that has aired 3 seasons. Currently airing on 9go in Australia
