We’ve never made someone an Inked Girl twice.
And we wouldn’t have if there weren’t something about Ira Chernova. When we first shot the minx from Moscow in 2010, she was in a transitional phase. She planned to move from Russia to Amsterdam, all the while shooting photos with intriguing narratives. Feeling foreign on the opposite end of the camera, she was coy and quiet but had a stare that spoke volumes. Since that first shoot, she’s lived in Amsterdam, relocated to Brooklyn, and established herself as an exceptional photographer (Elijah Wood has even graced her lens). That’s what makes this Inked Girl so special—she captures a perfect moment that without her camera would otherwise be lost.
