27-year-old Anastasia McAllister from Lewiston is a single mother of two young children who's thinking outside of the box when it comes to fundraising.

Having undergone surgery for a work-related injury last September, Anastasia has been in recovery mode and out of work all winter. When she came across the competition to become Inked magazine's next Cover Girl, she knew she had to give it a shot.

Along with achieving a dream of hers, sharing her tattoos with the world, and modeling on the cover of a major magazine, winning the contest would impact Anastasia's life financially: the prize is $25,000.

A sum of that amount would help support Anastasia's children and pay off bills that have been piling up since she's been out of work.

The first round of voting has already begun and will extend until June 19th. Every voter gets one vote a day via Facebook login on the Inked magazine website. Just a heads up, some of these photos on Inked may be NSFW.
