Watch out, dangerous curves ahead! Tattoo model and stunt rider Sam Cook is pulling out all her best tricks and looking damn good doing them.
When did you get your first bike?
I got my first bike when I was 14, it was a Honda CR125 two-stroke dirt bike.
Tell us about your favorite bike.
My favorite bike would have to be the one I have now. It’s a 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 636. It’s my favorite because of the way it rides. I also put a lot of hard-earned money into stunting it out and making it look my style—it’s my pride and joy.
Describe your perfect riding day.
My perfect riding day would have to be a day in fall because I live in Florida. Hoodie weather is the best.
What are some of your favorite tricks to do on a bike?
I love basic sit-down wheelies. I prefer using foot brakes over hand brakes, so I feel more comfortable with this trick. But I also love doing spreaders and high chairs.
What’s your favorite tattoo and what’s the story behind it?
That’s a tough one. I’d say my “Home Sick” tattoos above my knees. I’m originally from Czech Republic and moved to the States with my mom when I was 9. My whole family is still there and the food is amazing, so I stay missing home. But when I go to visit there I miss Florida within the first week and get homesick again.
