We were very blessed to meet exotic beauty Tatiania Eriksen this past year at the Paradise Challenge Open in Jamaica were we shot her December 2014 Model of the Month feature. As you can see by this video, Tatiania turned up the heat at Hedonism II Resort in Nigril.
“Tatiania is a very free spirit,” stated BikiniTeam.TV Co-Founder John Neyrot. “She was easy to work with and willing to try anything to get the shot. So much so, that she got body painted for one of the looks we needed for her Model of the Month feature.”
Eriksen has been featured in the Las Vegas Magazine and the Playboy Lingerie Edition as well as appeared on CSI Las Vegas.
Neyrot went on to say: “One thing I noticed that day we shot was that Tatiania was always smiling. Even between shots. It was contagious and I couldn’t help but smiling myself. I loved working with her and hope to cross paths with her again soon.”
Our video and pics of Ericksen were featured by BroBible.com and Tatiania was also made the Foxy Lady of the Day on FoxSports.com both in December.
John actually got to bodypaint Tatiania during the Paradise Challenge. Ericksen as well as Kerri Keller got painted along with International Playboy Playmate and BikiniTeam.com October 2014 Model of the Month Marissa Everhart. Photos from that shoot appeared in Geek Fantasy Magazine.
Check out our exclusive interview with Tatiania Eriksen:
Q: Describe your bikini for the shoot and why you like that particular style, cut, etc. Be as specific as possible with the brand name and even the suit name if you know it.
For my shoot I wore a black bikini with Diamond Bling studs, what girl doesn’t like Bling Bling? I also wore a bikini by Doll Swimwear, I just absolutely love their line. My favorite would have to be Veve Swimwear, I love how colorful the swimsuit was as well as the unique ties.
Q: Most memorable moment on the shoot (Tell me about the day)?
Well don’t know if its the best of the memorable moments but getting bit by what I think was fire ants on the tree was shocking! You gotta be a pro in order to keep shooting and smile and look sexy all at the same time when ants are biting you. The best part overall was taking the boat to a secluded island and being body painted by John Neyrot for my last shoot, the sunset was very beautiful that night.
Q: When did you start modeling and how were you discovered?
I realized I wanted to be a model at the age of 12, but I didn’t get discovered until i was 16. I went to a scouting convention in Orlando and instantly got picked up by many agencies. My first agency that I was signed to at the age of 17 was BMG Models.
Q: What was your first big break in the industry?
I would say being able to travel internationally and model internationally was definitely one of my biggest breaks, although being able to do the Victoria Secret Runway Show in Vegas was a dream, who doesn’t love Lingerie?
Q: Not including shooting with us, what has been your favorite job so far?
I don’t know if you would say favorite as a “job” lets face it work is work, but I truly enjoy modeling and being in front of the camera. I was able to shoot for Geek Fantasy Magazine which I found so much fun because I was actually body painted for my outfit. I felt naked and freel, it was a great accomplishment being able to shoot for them just because I consider myself a huge geek.
Q: What has been your favorite place on the planet to shoot and why?
My favorite place shooting by far was in a castle in Bogota, Colombia. I literally felt like a queen.
Q: What is your favorite swimwear company or companies and why do you like their swimsuits?
My favorite swimwear company would have to be Beach Bunny because they are sexy, flashy and in style. Any swimsuit I get or receive from companies usually see me taking it to get modified by adding a little something even if its a little skull or a little bling bling. There I go with my Bling Bling again.
Q: Tell us something interesting about yourself that most people do not know (the quirkier, the better!)?
I hate wearing bras, I don’t know if most people know that but its pretty obvious. I definitely would say I’m a tomboy.
Q: If you could be doing any job in the world for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
If i could do any job in the world for the rest of my life I wouldn’t change a thing, besides just come out bigger and stronger. I’m pursuing acting now so watch out!
Q: What is your favorite movie of all time and why?
My favorite movie of all times would have to be, ‘What Dreams May Come’. I really enjoyed watching the struggle that we battle everyday it was very lifting to see that its always and only a fight to never give up, especially in love.
Q: What Super Powers would you like to have and how would you use it?
If I had super powers I would like to read people’s minds. Yes, I wanna know exactly what your thinking. I would probably even get more work if I could only read minds!
Q: What are the Top 3 songs playing on your iPod right now?
311 the Love Song
Blood in this Moment
Death Cab for Cutie’s I Will Possess Your Heart
Q: What is your workout routine?
I really like to go hiking. I enjoy the outdoors, and by hiking I mean hiking not just a walk, I climb. I don’t really have a routine but currently I am on the squat challenge, you gotta squat for that booty.
Q: Favorite food and how often do you eat it?
My favorite food would ultimately have to be sushi because I love saki and the whole combo. I probably eat it about twice a week, I also really enjoy Pho, us Colombians are big on soups.
Q: What is your drink of choice?
To-kill-yah lol Tequila baby I love me some 1942 gets me going puts me right in the mood to PARTAY!
Q: What does Fashion mean to you?
Fashion is a passion lol. I think is a great way to reflect our personalities and keep life interesting, fashion is everything without fashion life would suck.
Q: What models do you look to for inspiration and/or admire and why?
My all time favorite model would have to be Angelina Jolie because she continuosly strived for bigger and better things. She kept her head up and pursued acting and killed it, so motivating. I also love Adrianna Lima because not only is she hot but she seems goofy too and she gorgeous of course.
Q: Favorite designer and why?
That’s a hard one depending if we are talking about dresses or clothing. I currently discovered Niki Schwan. She’s amazing. her clothing style is edgy yet sexy and classy all at the same time. Her accessories are the best part because you can basically dress up anything you wear. Even the lingerie can be incorporated into your daily or nightly wear, which I am I huge fan of.
Q: What celebrity do you resemble or get mistaken for the most?
People always tend to say that I look like the darker version of Cameron Diaz because of my big smile. But I get a few. I sometimes get Angelina Jolie which is a huge compliment and Naya Rivera.
Q: Where can we see you next? Do you have any upcoming events, photo shoots or appearances that your fans can see you at soon?
You can definitely catch me at the next Paradise Challenge in Bali, and currently I start filming soon for a new show that I can’t speak of yet. Hint its air’s on CMT…I also will be shooting for a up and coming swimsuit designer Reebees Swimwear.
