Sinical Magazine: Where are you originally from and where are you currently located?
Veronica Gomez: I was born the year of 1986 in Houston, Texas. Raised in Pearland, Texas, and I just recently moved to Spring, Texas about 4 months ago. I’m a Texas girl. I don’t think I will ever move from Texas!
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?
Veronica Gomez: My whole life up until the age of 18 I was a dancer. Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Ballet, Modern... etc. Then in college I really got into musicals. I was in “The Best Little Whore House in Texas” (I played a whore lol!), and I was also in “Beauty and the Beast,” where I played a dancing napkin, and a townsperson. This was so much fun for me, singing, dancing, and acting was basically my dream. Then I started working at bars. They would use me for thier promotional posters and flyers... and then I found a new love: modeling.
Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?
Veronica Gomez: It wasn’t magazines or other people who inspired me to model. During college I started getting tattoos. I found out quickly that if I wanted to continue being on stage, I was not allowed to get any more tattoos. I guess being tattooed was more important to me. I quit school after I played in those two musicals, got a sleeve, and the attention from local photographers started. After doing a couple of photo shoots, I found a new love. It’s not as easy as people think, but I love the challenge of trying to make it as a model with having tattoos. Thats harder than people think it is. I don’t live in Los Angeles. I live in Texas, and in Texas the perfect model is natural looking and I am anything but that!
Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand out from others?
Veronica Gomez: It’s not just standing there and looking pretty. It’s the emotion you put into it. It’s like making art. Your eyes and body language is everything. I also think that what makes a model stand out is not looking like everyone else.
Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Veronica Gomez: The photographer and the model have to have a connection. If they don’t connect or communicate, the photos will look lifeless.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Veronica Gomez: 35-24-37. So that means: big tits, little waist, and nice hips.
Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?
Veronica Gomez: Size 8.
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Veronica Gomez: I love leather boots, and fishnets. It takes a strong woman to play that off! Intimidation is sexy to me.
Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Veronica Gomez: I love all kinds of music. I’m from Texas, so I do like country too,. Some of my favorite bands are The Misfits, AFI, Black Sabbath, Dio, and my all time favorite is Journey! I dont care who knows! I love Journey!
Sinical Magazine: What tattoos do you have?
Veronica Gomez: My first tattoos where stars on my hips. I know it’s lame, but I was 18. Then my dad told me never to get guns, skulls, or knives. So the next day I got a sleeve of... you guessed it: guns, skulls, and knives. I love you Dad! On my other arm, I’m working on a Halloween sleeve. Creepy and spooky, I LOVE IT!
Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what else do you like to do for fun?
Veronica Gomez: My new hobby is putting rhinestones on my heels, and studs on my shirts, and spikes on my jackets. That’s my arts and crafts.
Sinical Magazine: What’s up next for you?
Veronica Gomez: Im going to Los Angeles to do another casting call with Playboy. Cross your fingers! My goal is to be the first tattooed Playmate. I also am waiting to launch my website, but I want to make sure I have a solid fan base. So please if your reading this, and you haven’t done it already... go like my Facebook page!
