|I'm not afraid of setting myself on fire, which is inevitable when you first start out as a welder!|

22-year-old Michigan alt model Alloy Ash is hot. Quite literally hot. Because when she's not posing in front of the camera, she works as a welder. "I discovered I had flair for welding in high school and I loved kicking all the boys' asses at a skill that pretty little girls aren't traditionally supposed to be good at!"
At Detroit metal workshop Speedcult, she's worked on all sorts of inventive items, from bonkers racing cars to horseshoe-shaped fairground rides, such as the 'Roaster Coaster' at the Burning Man Festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. "I feel so sexy when I'm playing with flamethrowers at Speedcult," she purrs.
But it's her scorching hot bod and spectacular tatts that are burning up this screen. It looks like the lowbrow art world ate a sackful of candy and then vomited joyfully all over Alloy. "I fall in love with any artist who fuses dark, creepy, perverse and depressive stuff with happy, innocent themes," she says. "Most of my tattoos depict images by my favourite illustrators and painters, such as Junko Mizuno."
