Cami Li has been in the crucible of Celebrity Big Brother and the notorious British tabloid press—so she is used to having eyes all around her. Taking into account that comfortability, her strong personality and exquisite beauty we thought Cami was the perfect candidate to be the first tattooed model to be captured in 4-D. We brought her to Steven Sebring, the photographer, filmmaker and multimedia artist who created Revolution, a 360-degree photography dome unlike the world has ever seen. To echo the rapid shooting style we swiftly shot questions at Cami that she answered expeditiously. Following is that conversation and stills from the session that redefine the notion of “moving images.” For the interactive view of Cami, her tattoos and a dance of light and movement visit inkedmag.com/revolution.
INKED: What is it like dating in the spotlight?
Cami Li: Jeez, it fucking sucks. You don’t know who likes you for who you are, or just “Cami Li.” But I got lucky and have me a pretty awesome dude.
You joked about releasing a sex tape, do you have a favorite celebrity sex tape?
I’ve never watched any of them, honestly. I am my own sex tape.
Do you feel for other celebrities or do you just think it comes with the territory?
I don’t feel for any of that shit. Anyone coming into this industry should know what they’re getting into. I’ll take all the negative, because the positive is worth that.
Do you allow yourself to get lost in love or do you hold back for a while, thinking that revealing secrets or kinks to lovers could end up in the press?
Deep down, I’m a hopeless romantic. That being said, not many men see that! I have a rough exterior because it’s hard to let people in. And if some douche wants to reveal my sex secrets, I’ll look like a fucking boss!
Because your personal life is in the newspapers and blogs, do you feel like you have to date celebrities?
No way! I’d rather stab my eyes with rusty needles than date a celeb. I like guys who are down to earth, not stuck up their ass.
What was the best part of Celebrity Big Brother?
Making friends with people I probably never would have crossed paths with like Katie Price, Katie Hopkins, Michelle Visage and Patsy Kensit.
What was the hardest part of filming Big Brother?
Not talking to my family for 28 days!
Do you have any more to say to Perez Hilton?
He should have been swallowed.
What made you want to go on MTV’s Ex on the Beach?
Revenge. That’s all I wanted and I fucking got it. I’m so glad the world got to see who Kirk [Norcross] really was aka a lowlife loser. #girlbye
What do you want people to learn from that relationship?
Don’t ever date a controlling douche.
How does tattoo culture and perception differ between the UK and the US?
In the UK, it feels like tattoos are more acceptable. What the fuck! Let’s get with it, USA!
How does sexual behavior differ between the UK and the US?
From my experience, UK boys are more open, if ya know what I mean, ladies.
What do you look for in a guy?
Make me laugh, and you have my heart. True story, boys.
Do men have a hard time being intimate with a woman who has portrait tattoos on her?
First off, what idiot has a portrait of a dude on themselves? That being said, if she has a portrait of a dude, run for the hills!
You have a My Little Pony tattoo, do you have any Brony fans?
I do, but they’re top secret.
Who is doing your tattoos these days?
Tony Mancia out of Atlanta.
What is your favorite current piece?
My backpiece. I wish I would have met Tony a long time ago, he’s super cool and professional. Some tattoo artists should take a page out of his book…
When do you think you’ll stop getting tattooed?
Did you really sleep with a guy who had a platinum cock ring?
Ahh, I did.
Was he proud of it?
He was definitely proud of it and I was disgusted. Next!
And you referred to your lady part as a “baby canal” and “the golden vagina,” any other names?
