Marlo Marquise is a full-time performer and flesh hook suspension artist. Marlo began her journey into modeling in high school when friends offered her work doing art projects. It was mainly just an artistic hobby for her from highschool and into College. Having a bachelors degree in Fine Arts, she has been taught virtually every medium of art.
“I became very fascinated with the basic of raw art and thought to myself, what what is the most raw tool I can create art with… my body.”
Six years ago she decided to make a “model” profile on Model Mayhem and got instant responses. Her first shoot was a week later with a very old-school fetish photographer who had shot many covers for lifestyle specialty magazine such as DDI. Eventually she was shooting constantly and it became less of a hobby and more of a job. The rest is history!
Flash forward to present day: Marlo is a very sought after performance artist who specializes in Sideshow Burlesque, Fire, Flesh Hook Suspension as well as other various “freakshow” oddities.
I have followed Marlo’s work for quite some time and a few months ago I decided to shoot her a quick message online and see if she’d be interested in chatting a bit about her work, her lifestyle and her crazy shenanigans. She blew me away by being totally on board. So below is an assortment of questions and answers about her work with modeling, her personal journey through flesh hook suspension and a bit other personal information about her. I wanted to share this piece to promote this amazing lady and all her work. She’s a constant inspiration to me, and I know there are a lot of girls out there who are always looking for positive role models who showcase beauty, sophistication and class with a side of raw, unabashed self love. For me, Marlo is an icon who displays all the aspects of a hardworking, independent, driven woman who loves what she does and doesn’t let anyone tell her she can or cannot do it. She showcases her passion on a global stage and is part of the fight to push past social barriers standing in the way of more people doing what they love. Please enjoy the following and show this fantastic lady some support and love.
