Two girls from Maine have now advanced into Round Two of the Inked Magazine Cover Girl Contest!

The Grand Prize Winner of this national contest will score $25,000, and join celebrity photographer Christopher Kolk for a cover shoot!

Kylie Bean (to the right in photo) who is 23 years-old and from Enfield, is now one of twenty girls left in her Group.  She currently places 11th in the Group.  We contacted Kylie and asked what she would do if she won the Grand Prize and she told us,  "If I win I want to help people who are less fortunate have a good experience getting their first tattoo that hopefully means something special to them, or something that makes them feel more confident. I love tattoos and have a full sleeve on my left arm, ribs, chest, foot and ankle."

Caprice Stevens (to the left in photo), 25, from Lincoln, is currently #1 in her Group of 20 contestants.  Caprice, a self-proclaimed "small-town Maine girl", says that if she wins the $25,000, "I would be able to buy myself a new camera so I could pursue my dream of traveling and photographing my journey!"   Caprice was asked by the magazine if getting tattoos was addictive; "I haven't stopped since my first tattoo and have accumulated 12 so far!"

Voting for the Second Round ends this Wednesday night, June 26th, at midnight, and then it's on to Round Three, then the Wild Card and eventually the Finals.

All the best to these two Maine girls in this competition! We're voting for you!
