Sky Ferreira: My GoT style tattoo rocks

Sky Ferreira

Sky Ferreira says she believes personality is what makes a great model, not perfect looks.

The model admitted she didn't intend for the body art on her arm to turn out so big, but explained she is thrilled when people say it reminds them of the medieval style of the HBO hit show.

The 21-year-old clothes horse, who is currently promoting her first music album Night Time, My Time is known for her edgy style and recently dyed her hair black.

"The Celtic dagger wasn't supposed to be this big!" she told British magazine Company. "People say it's very Game of Thrones, which I love, but haven't been able to watch the third season yet."

Sky added that she knows she doesn't fit the model stereotype. The singer and actress has fronted campaigns for the likes of  Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein and Adidas and puts her success in the fashion industry down to her charisma.

"I don't necessarily feel like a model. I'm not 10 feet tall with long limbs; it's more about personality," she said.

The star has spoken at length in the past of her love for trashy and edgy style icons, citing Kurt Cobain and Madonna as past influences.

"My hair was literally breaking off so I felt like it was time to switch it up. [Hairdresser] Guido cut it - he did Edie Campbell's bowl cut. I wanted it like Kurt Cobain's - short and choppy," she previously told the magazine.

"I love how Courtney Love dressed in the '90s. Sometimes I dress like Courtney, but I feel like I dress like Kurt Cobain more! I love Debbie Harry and early Madonna, when she was a bit trashy."
