I thought it was impossible to take a bad picture of such a stunningly gorgeous creature --
Slastyonoff has THOROUGHLY disabused me of that notion.
The next time he comes near her with a camera -- she should run in the other direction.
I love Red , Dagoma is Fantastic
Stunningly beautiful lovely photo set
goddess of beauty
Mia, a natural beauty for sure! She is real and so is her tattoo and thank you Slastyonoff for your artistic creativity and objective perspective.
I never imagined a fiery redhead with freckles, eating an apple and reading a book could exude so much sexiness until I viewed this gallery. And yes, her hair up, in the ponytail then let down just accentuates her natural beauty.
Oh Mia! You are such a spicy stunner!
Mia - stunning as ever. Love the panty shots front & rear
I can't imagine why she wanted to put that horrible huge tattoo on her flawless body.
I wasn't going to comment other than to say Mia Sollis is one of my personal favorite models of all time -- & I go back a ways. But I read some of the idiot comments on this set (mistake!). Then I went back and looked at some of Mia's earlier work such as "Oscula" and was even more appalled. There is a certain percentage of commenters who writhe around on the floor, frothing at the mouth, whenever the subject of Mia's tattoo comes up. Live with it, boys & girls: Mia's tatt, in all it's full-color,shoulder-to-shoulder glory, was fully published on another site 3 weeks before she first appeared on MET in August, 2011. Yeah, yeah, I know the policy, but MET went ahead and published her anyway.
It was the comments that bothered me. I was reminded of police chief Louis's response in "Casablanca": "I'm shocked, shocked to find there is gambling going on here!" just before being handed his winnings by the croupier. The I-hate-tattoos mind set that says everything has to be perfect TO MY SPECIFICATIONS or I hate it. Same mind set that leads to collapsed individual relationships, depressed Euro economies, the redrawing of national boarders by main force, and the massacre of cartoonists. Mia's got a tattoo? So fucking what. And she removes her body hair? So fucking what. If you really worry about things like that you should take your meds and get a life. Look at image #107 & relax. I agree with _fer_realz & Rose below. My personal favorite from this set is #59, followed closely by #107-109.
Thanks to Slastyonoff for having the vision and talent to capture Mia Sollis in his unique way -- this set & the earlier ones. And, Mia: for having the courage to strut your stuff at such a high artistic and erotic level -- you create & define beauty. Many, many thanks.
I have long felt, body hair and things like tattoos are no one's business but the model. I hate women's high heeled shoes and lingerie, but would never complain. There are those out there who like these things. Well said Ulysses!
Well said, Ulysses -- well said.
I agree with absolutely everything you say -- and even your right to say it. And I am particularly impressed to find other members who are acutely aware of the dangerous world in which we live. I would feel much better if I thought the majority of the world was as well informed as you are.
But I still don't like tatoos on a woman.
I don't usually comment on "tats" on this site, mainly because I said everything I had to say on the subject two years ago. It all depends upon one's personal viewpoint, and there is no need to launch a "crusade" on the subject every time someone spots a "tat".
"To tat -- or not to tat" (to paraphrase Shakespeare) -- is much like choosing what color tie to wear to the office.
I have viewed "Casablanca" well over 100 times, and Claude Rains' portrayal of Louis is one of the finest performances of a long and distinguished career. Many people overlook his wonderfully nuanced character because he is almost overshadowed by the greatness of Bogart & Bergman. You have an astute eye, sir.
'Dreadnought', I assume, means you're English. Well, Queen Victoria had a tattoo (got it with Prince Albert, the love-birds) & Winston Churchill's mother had one (which I assume Queen Victoria's son Edward Prince of Wales got to inspect when he was banging her (Jenny Jerome Churchill) at one of those 19th century English country house parties). Cleopatra had one, as did Catherine the Great -- tattoos been around for awhile. I don't much care for them, either, tho I have a few myself. But I can over look their presence on someone as beautiful as Mia Sollis, or steamy as Malena Morgan. In terms of careers, they are with us such a short time (unless they are Joan Collins!) and share their sexual identities so generously that I find I can mostly forgive sometimes foolish enhancements. I thought Claude Rains's greatest performance was as "The Invisible Man"? :-)
Hail, Ulysses --
"Dreadnought" does, indeed, come from First Sea Lord Jackie Fisher's imaginative design for the dreadnought battleship. For the first half of the 20th Century they were the symbol of a world Power, and the captain of a dreadnought need..."Dread nought, but fear God!"
But, if we had avatars on this site, mine would be a picture of a California Class battleship. They were, arguablly, the most attractive of the pre-war fast dreadnoughts in the US Navy. I was born not in England, but in an obscure place north of Louisiana and a bit south of Missouri, and I grew up in California. But I DO admire the tenacity of the English and their Empire.
Agreed -- The Ladies are delightful, and they do so kindly allow us to share their beauty, and perhaps even remind us of the beautiful women we have known. Though I may cringe a bit, I would not deny them their "tat". They are, after all, a gift from the Gods, and only a fool would deny them anything.
I suspect that Claude Rains, like many of the film stars in his era, was under contract to the studio when he did "The Invisible Man". But he was a fine practitioner of his craft. I can imagine him reading the script and saying -- "There are no small parts, only small actors".
Mia is gorgeous, love redheads (and I'm one too!) Hard to imagine her back could be enhanced with a "stunning piece of art" In my opinion, MetArt has a good policy, ink is common as dirt now, and very popular with the trailer trash crowd, so the policy keeps the standards high. Never see a Ferrari with bumper stickers, do you?
I'd be interested to see what she has done, I have not seen Oscula. But the pity is no matter how much she likes it, some day her skin will change & it will look awful, and there's no undoing it.
But no matter... Mia is a treat to see, especially undressed!
Mia is amazing! Loved the moment in this set where she let her hair loose, she looks more sexy like that. 10+
Well to the best of my knowledge THE Tat was never a secret except to the viewers. Mia has across the family had over 5000 photo and several movies posted. In less than 1% of these pics is and evidence of THE Tat visible and only 1 that the whole thing can be seen. I have no verification if this story is true or not but what I have been told is that Mia started with a casting site. At that time no mention of any tat was made only her belly button piercing. When she showed up for her actual Met family shoot there was The Tat. OPPS. The "rule" about Tats was already in place, and strictly enforced. So from day one here all of the artist have "struggled" to "hid" it. It was not until Luca did the movie of her and Edwige that "we" first viewed most of it. One artist did some casuals by a gas pump with her in jeans and a tank top where the fact it was there was obvious but just what it was was a mystery. As opposed to a lot of her fellow countryman models Mia has not spread herself around as much as others. A couple of sites have shown it in its entirety but not a lot. The "flash" for it was a plate from the published Kama Sutra Book. To the best of my knowledge Mia is totally comfortable with it, if not pround of just how good of work it is. It seems that as the trend is away from any photo shopping and more reality is allowed that K finally decided that while still not featuring it, it would not be totally hiddden. This is not just with Mia. Mango's "clover" has appeared, a little arched back cat on another model, and even a vicious scar on another. When Bo was doing SexArt the tats were never a no no. Andrej & APF and Most still artist now on Sex do avoid them but not bar them. DeltaGamma has a set pending of Mia where while "covered" the Tat is fully visiable, I was expecting it first but todays set broke the barrier. Mia is active on facebook but does not normally comment here. Today I wish both K and her would jump in and put this issue finally to rest. And No I am not advocating for a change in the "rules" but for every rule there should be limited exceptions. I was expecting bitching when Lucy had a cig in her hand, another no no, when in one casual shot she did. And yes there will always be a few who "hate" any thing slightly different be it sand, over tan, too thin, too artistic, you name it somebody will commlain the site is going to hell if not the model. We had similar outrage when Jon allowed a sets on SexArt with Lorena and Mango, in solo sets, played with there anus. But part of the strength of MetArt in general is that the diffent sites have different "limits". Here no touchy the "goods", Errotic Archives you may touch but not penetrate, The Life Erotic and SexArt, stick whatever you want in as long as it is in fronr, well 99% of the time anyway. So the fact that after 5000 pics we finally see the Tat on a model that we all have loved for 4 year now does not seem the extreme. And overall todays set is one of Mia's best, she looks happy, so playful, and the freckles be so out there was even more surprising to me than what 3 that showed the Tat. Hell we are probably more familiar with her, you know what, than her gynecologist. So big whoop about her back. Get real....
I agree, it's far past time to get real. Some members hate tats, but then some members hate pubic hair too, and some models prefer to pose with full bushes. The best advice IMO is "If you don't like pubic hair, don't look a the sets of models who pose with pubic hair. If you don't like tats, don't look at the models who have tats." Especially because unlike pubic hair, once a tat is on, it's not coming off again without disfiguring surgery.
There are all kinds of people and all kinds of looks out there... enjoy the ones that fit your preferences, and do what you can not to allow the ones who don't to disturb your happiness.
To be perfectly honest, the sets shot by Slastyonoff were a little experiment of mine. I love Mia Sollis and Slastyonoff shoots her with a unique perspective. I will say, I am not a fan of the tattoo (or really any tattoos). MetArt has always had a tough stance on the visibility of "alterations" and I have always preferred that policy.
Photographers started shooting Mia and I was thrilled to see a new beautiful red head to spice things up. When I first became aware of the tattoo I had already published her first set and Mia received, as expected, rave reviews. After a few more sets members began to ask why there were never any good shots of her from behind. I thought why not, I'll just give a hint of back and see where that takes us. When I published the set "Oscula" I did receive many complaints, but also many people just happy to see her entire body.
We are not going to be changing the policy, however I also don't want to pretend that these things don't exist either. I hope this helps :)
Thankyou so much for allowing this exception to the usual rule. Mia is a truly beautiful young woman who happens to have a stunning piece of art on her back. Some people hate ink but when done well, as a n this case, it is as much a valid form of art as any other and becomes an essential part of the natural beauty of the person it adorns as a representation of their personality.
Thanks K, I remembered the pics but not that it was Oscula. Your jumping in with your definitive statement helps a lot. You made it clear it was a planned "exception" and not just what that swplf's opinion was as to what occurred. So again thanks.
redheads are always beautiful
First time I've ever been jealous of an apple.
Wonderfully sexy, Mia and Slastyonoff always produce magnificence, absolutely fantastic set!.
Mia,what if you consider allow me to date you and spend the whole day counting your freckles?
Good luck with that, LOL
Freckles rule! Ditto wrinkled areolae, glass cutters, and ribs.
Mia and Slastyonoff appear to have developed a happy working relationship during this shoot.
It looks like eastern Prague is / was home to many differing and pleasing buildings and homes.
You call those glass cutters????
@SouthernMaster - Must be for very soft glass. ;-)
I enjoy her other work but for me her sets with Slastyonoff are unparalleled, he seems to coax out and capture a raw sexual energy in Mia that is a wonderfully decadent pleasure to behold.
I had a hard time getting past her pretty face to notice much of anything else. Maybe on my third pass!
Finally, Mia's guilty secret is revealed. The large and rather disfiguring tattoo on her back can clearly be seen in the final photos of the set. She (and the seven different photographers she has worked with) has been hiding this for the last four years although we have had occasional glimpses when she has been lying prone. Otherwise, photos from the rear have been cut off just above her waistline or else her hair has been artfully arranged to cover that the tattoo. It is interesting to know why she and her these photographers go to such lengths of concealment?
I love it when Mia puts up her hair like she has for the first part of the set. So darn sexy... esp. when she shows us her undies too. Very sexy thong. ( :
Hair up - that's her "Gwyneth-Paltrow-as-Pepper-Potts" look. Nothing wrong with that at all.
I love that she has her hair up, and then when she lets it down, it's one of those OMG moments!
