We'll be lining up with everyone else this summer to see the long-awaited big screen version of Land of the Lost. But it's not because of Will Ferrell-it's to see Eve Mauro, who's about to play the hottest Pakuni Woman in cinematic history
INKED: So when did you get your first tattoo?
EVE MAURO: I was in sixth grade-it's a stick figure on my hip, done with India ink and a needle.
Whoa-there has to be a great story behind that.
There is. It was these two chicks and me, and we were kind of drunk. One of the other girls got a stick figure on her hip too, but the head is coming off the body, so it looks retarded. We did mine first, thank god.
You were drunk in sixth grade?
Yeah, and giving each other tattoos. One of the girl's grandmas had all this artsy stuff lying around, and she was really old, so we did whatever we wanted. We took a sewing needle and burnt it in a candle and gave each other tattoos. Mine is still there-it hasn't faded or anything.
What were you drinking?
Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill. We tried Mad Dog 20/20, and it tasted like ass, so we switched to Boone's. Then when I was 15, I went to a tattoo parlor and got a humongous naked fairy under my belly button. It goes all the way down. For 15, I don't know what I was thinking, but I figured if I got it below my belly button my parents wouldn't see it. That was stupid. My dad's from Sicily and thinks tattoos are for criminals.
Did they ever find out?
I'm sure they did. I've seen pictures from when I was 17 and you can see it poking out, but they never said anything about it.
And your third tattoo?
When I came to California I got a griffin on my bicep. It symbolizes divine power. I studied Greek mythology growing up, so I was all into that shit.
Would you ever get any of them removed?'
I'm actually getting the one on my stomach lasered off. I was young-I didn't figure that if I went to a beach there'd be kids around, and they'd see some naked lady with titties on my stomach, and they'd be like, "What's that?" I'm not sure what I'm gonna get. I'm thinking of this Sicilian head of Medusa with legs coming out of it, but we'll see.
Will you get any more?
I'd like to. I want to get some writing around the griffin, maybe one of my favorite quotes, "It's better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven," from Paradise Lost.
Have you ever met a fan with a tattoo of your face?
Eww, no. That'd be weird, don't you think? I'd be like, "What the fuck?" That's creepy!
