What They Say

Quotes from associates and fans
"Dita Von Teese and Masuimi Max.. They’ve been modeling and performing full time since the 1990’s. Their influence on current models is unquestioned and they’ve basically joined the ranks of Miss Page. We are honored to have featured Masuimi Max in our magazine. Like Bettie Page before her, she has inspired a legion of alternative models to lace up a corset, pull on some stockings and slide into a pair of stilettos. Masuimi is a true “master of disguise” and often makes her own costumes and backgrounds, and is an accomplished fire performer and burlesque dancer. She is a true original in a sea full of copycats, and one of the few models that has made a career out of doing what she loves."
Danny Stygion
SInical Magazine
"Her success in the industry paved the way for so many models that followed, but the story of her success is a classic tale of how hard work, talent and determination can overcome all challenges. Masuimi’s list of credits is so vast, with over 100 magazine covers and many more features, music videos, TV shows and movies, that it’s almost impossible to select a few highlights. She just launched her own makeup line, I Am Sin, and her website, Bad Max, has over 50,000 images!"

"Masuimi is one of the top fetish models of all times, and I will always clear my calendar to shoot with her. The photos we do are the most fun and the most rewarding, and I’m looking forward to the crazy things we may be doing in the future. ;-)"

"Masuimi Max is a performance artist and model who has inspired me to do some of my best work. Many of these paintings are in my book “American Geisha,” and she will be in my upcoming book “Malibu Cheesecake.” The way she contorts her body, making her look like a toy, is part of her unique style and energy. Joel and I love her. l will always be painting Masuimi Max!"
Olivia De Berardinis
World Famous Pinup Artist
"Masuimi Max has single handedly set the standard for up and coming alternative models. Masuimi has the innate ability to morph her image from one dynamic look to the next. It’s always an amazing experience when you shoot with Masuimi Max…. you never know what you’ll get. But it will be amazing… guaranteed."

"Masuimi Max is one of my favorite people and models, ever. She is so positive, confident, and professional. I am a very lucky photographer to have such a great relationship with her. She has done so much for me over the years."
Shannon Brooke
"I met Masuimi Max back in 2005 for a shoot, I had no idea what kind of model she was until all my girlfriends told me how jealous they were. Over the years we have shot a ton. She is every photographers dream model, as she understands her body, face and movements perfectly with a non-diva attitude. Just like hanging out with an awesome naked friend. I’m blessed to have so many great photos to share with everyone of Masuimi and hope to make 100′s more in the future."
Ellen Stagg
"I’ve looked up to Masuimi since I was 17, I always loved her photos and her doll like looks. If you dont know who this girl is you are crazy. She is an original."
Raquel Reed
Burlesque Queen
"Masuimi Max has incredible talent! Working with her is always such a pleasure, as she is a consummate professional and one of the most generous and kind people I know. Her ability to mold her body into any shape and pose, combined with her skill at conveying any emotion or character I need, has made Masuimi one of my foremost muses. She’s helped me to take my art to the next level and will always be one of my favorite models"
