From the October 2007 issue of PRICK Magazine.

Amina Munster shoots from the hip, or peg leg if you'd prefer. Over the years, this girl has become big – bigger than most girls who stare worldly conventions in the eyes, at least. Ms. Munster is one of the most easily recognized Suicide Girls around, and with more than a few good reasons. In the beginning, it was unknown to her many fans that, due to an accident at a young age, she was left without the lower quarter of one leg and the tips of five of her fingers. Now, several years later, and after making more of her own personal life available to the public, Amina has made waves throughout the modeling pool and ended up where only few have had the chance to see themselves: Everywhere – magazines, the whole internet, and as the shining Ace of Spades in a deck of naked-girl playing cards.

When it comes to her tattoo work, Amina's collection has been given to her by a great group of well-known artists from all around the country and a select few from the Great White North. As evidence of Amina's unabashed love for The King of Rock 'n' Roll is her "TCB" bolt, which was done by Nate Kostechko and her "Rubberneckin'" neckpiece by Tim Kern. Also of note is her portrait of Lily Munster by Shane Munce. Hell, they're all pretty cool. In the spirit of making a true celebration out of everyone's favorite holiday, Halloween, we at PRICK thought that it would be the perfect opportunity to give you some hot shit to look at – so here she is. To look is to love, my friends.

What got you started in the alt-modeling game?

Before joining I had no modeling experience. When I originally joined in the winter of 2002, I never considered it a life changing decision. Ultimately, it was. Since my debut on the site I have been approached with more opportunities than one could ever imagine.

How long have you been appearing on the covers of magazines?

If I remember correctly, I appeared on my first cover in September of 2005. I can't believe it has been two years. It is pretty cool to look back at all of them – the different photographers, looks, hairstyles, and clothing. If this keeps up, I'll have pretty good documentation of my 20s.

Do you think that tattoos should be serious and personal or funny and light-hearted?

All of my tattoos have meaning. Some are personal, others are saddening, and a few are just humorous. I don’t think tattoos should or shouldn’t be something particular; they can be anything the person chooses. That's the fun of it.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?

Sadly, I haven't put any thought into it yet. However, a couple ideas were thrown around the other day. Apparently, to my friends, Halloween has become an excuse to be as offensive as is humanly possible.

What is your favorite Misfits song?

I’d have to go for "Some Kinda Hate" but there are many others that are right up there with that one. Though, admittedly, I’m more of Danzig fan. Give me Danzig’s first four albums, an iPod, lock me in a room, and I'm a happy girl.

What's your favorite horror movie?

Any movie with people dying, though I guess that is sort of all of them. I would suggest that everyone check out Wizard of Gore. I have the role of Cecelia and I die twice in the film. Crispin Glover (who plays Montag) throws bear traps at me and eventually decapitates me. However, I'm more into my death at the hands of Kip Pardue. I got to make out with him in a blood-covered bed while he ate me alive. It was pretty awesome.

Do you think that Sam Loomis was an angel or the Devil?

I'm not a big fan of sequels. I've only seen the original Halloween and none of the later movies. I have heard rumors that Rob Zombie is remaking Halloween, which I'd love to see.

Where do you see yourself in the future?

Still in Las Vegas, unusually happy, and without a regular job. Basically, right where I am today.
