Dual National, Australian and Filipino, Yvonne Morris had always dreamed of becoming a body piercer. That lasted about a year.
'That lasted about a year. Throughout that year I had the mindset that I would grow as a piercer, modify my body in so many ways, I was comfortable with my appearance - with my tatoos, but up until recently I have felt more self conscious - being in the fashion industry as a model, I have constant thoughts that maybe I should give it all up because I have tatoos, but modelling is where my passion lies."
