Who is Monami Frost? Wiki Bio
Monami Frost was born Irena – surname unknown – in Latvia on 5 January 1994, so her zodiac sign is Sagittarius and she holds Latvian nationality. She is a YouTuber, model, and an entrepreneur who gained recognition thanks to numerous tattoos she has inked onto her skin.
Childhood and education
Monami was raised as a single child in Latvia by her father who was the owner of a small grocery store, and her mother who was working as a cleaning lady.
She became interested in singing while attending elementary school, and her parents enrolled her at a music school where she learnt how to play the guitar and the piano.
Monami entered many singing competitions but didn’t win any, and started creating problems for her family around the time she enrolled at a public high school. She started skipping classes, and met her first boyfriend whose name is not known, and to whom she became pregnant at the age of 14. Although her peers told her to have an abortion, Monami decided to keep the baby and gave birth to her daughter Gabriella in 2009.
It is widely believed that Monami didn’t matriculate from high school, but rather focused on raising her child.
Career as a model and a YouTuber
Monami had her first surgery at the age of three to fix an appendix problem, and when she was 10, she underwent another surgery to remove a lump close to her right eyebrow.
It was around this time that she realized she could use surgery to change her appearance, and soon had her first piercing. She has done all of her piercings by herself, and at the age of 14 got her first tattoo.
Because tattoos and piercings were and still are a bit taboo in Europe, Monami launched her YouTube channel on 2 December 2012 onto which she uploads videos related to tattoos including tips, question and ask videos, make-up tutorials, and cooking recipes. She is a raw vegan, and is using her channel to promote this way of life and to share her tips and advice with her fans. The channel is currently subscribed to by over 700,000 people while all of her videos combined have been viewed more than 76 million times.
Two of Monami’s most popular videos are “WHAT MY VEGAN DAUGHTER EATS IN A DAY”, which has been seen over 3.55 million times since it was uploaded on 25 October 2017, and “BLACK ARM TATTOO – Q&A – MONAMI FROST”, viewed more than 2.6 million times since 26 May 2015. Monami is also an Instagram star, as her account is followed by more than 1.6 million people, interested in the over 4,200 pictures which Monami has uploaded onto it.
She is also an entrepreneur, having launched her own clothing line – “Frost Streetwear” – which is produced in the United Kingdom, and which represents Monami’s own style. She is in charge of designing the clothes, packaging them and promoting them on the social media networks.
Together with her husband, she has opened the vegan restaurant Frost Burgers in Liverpool UK, which has 4.8/5 stars on Google after nearly 500 people reviewed the restaurant. She is also a writer, having published her cookbook “Vegan Home Cooking With Monami Frost” which consists of 100 recipes, 72 of which are gluten-free.
Personal matters, love life, and relationships
Monami was in a relationship with her daughter Gabriella’s father for many years before the two decided to split sometime in the early 2010s. Shortly before the breakup, Monami was in London meeting up with some of her close friends, and it was then that she met Anrijs Straumer, a somewhat popular tattoo artist. It is widely believed that Monami broke up with Gabriella’s father so that she could date Anrijs, and in the next five years, he was responsible for nearly all the tattoos which can be seen inked onto Monami’s skin today.
They married sometime in 2018 in a private ceremony with only their closest friends and family attending, and in 2019 Monami gave birth to their child. One of the first gifts Monami received from Anrijs when they started dating was a mixtape which had the song “Mark Frost (MonAmi)” by Solaris on it and Monami was inspired by the song to choose ‘Monami Frost’ as her professional name.
Hobbies and other interests
Two of Monami’s favorite tattoos are her black sleeve and the snowflake which Anrijs tattooed onto her forehead – it represents her name and her uniqueness as each snowflake can never be the same as another. She likes to look beautiful when she goes out, but prefers wearing her boyfriend’s clothes around the house which are usually too big for her. She is physically active, and plays a variety of sports including tennis and soccer while she also goes to the gym two times a week.
Monami enjoys being outdoors and prefers nature over big cities, and as she is keen on travelling, she has been to many national parks around Europe, and to mountains including the Alps which she has visited in Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
Monami likes to watch movies and TV series in her spare time, and some of her favorite actors and actresses are Keanu Reeves, Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston, while some of her favorite movies are the trilogy “The Matrix”, “The Pursuit of Happyness”, and “Seven Pounds”, while her favorite TV series’ are “Friends” and “Breaking Bad”.
Appearance and net worth
Monami is 26 years old. She has long black hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 5ins (1.65m) tall, and weighs around 120lbs (55kgs). As of May 2020, her net worth is estimated at just over $1 million.
Who is Anrijs Straume, Monami’s husband? Wiki Bio
Anrijs Straume was born in Riga, Latvia in the late ‘80s – his zodiac sign is said to be Taurus and he holds Latvian nationality. He was raised an only child by his father who was a taxi driver, and his mother who was working as a nurse at a local hospital.
He grew up drawing, and during his teenage years started listening to metal music which led to him wanting to have tattoos just as the singers he admired. He began drawing the tattoos he wanted inked onto his skin, and after having his first inked at the age of 17, he fell in love with tattoos even more, and started saving money for new ones. In 2008, he decided he could as well tattoo himself and other people, and was accepted into an apprenticeship in Derby UK at Studio One Tattoo.
It was there that he learned the basics of the trade, including a variety of styles, then created his own which he calls ‘Dark Trash Realism’. Anrijs and his style have since become somewhat popular, and collectors from all around the world are coming to the UK to get one of his original tattoos.
During an interview, Anrijs explained that his biggest inspiration is Monami, as she is always there for him and is working as hard as he is or even harder, while some of his other inspirations are nature, animals, and movies. He is a vegan just as Monami, and has stated that it makes him sick how the people in the 21st century are breeding animals only to kill them and make them suffer.
Anrijs is currently working at the private studio Bold in Liverpool UK.
