(Los Angeles, CA) — On May 28, 2021, Alt Star Magazine held its annual Alt Porn Awards, with this year being of the virtual kind due to the pandemic restrictions. Alt Erotic Network wanted to share the company’s 12 Award nominations with its own red carpet streamed live for the world to see.
Misha Montana, who has been named as the company’s Chief Brand Officer, was under the impression that she was going to get a tattoo lesson from fellow Alt Erotic Brand Ambassador and “Tattooing Pornstar” Evilyn Ink. The plan was simple: Misha Montana was coming off a massive stroke a little over a month prior, and now due to her medication could not get any more tattoos. Ivan was stepping up for the couple to start his Alt Modeling transformation.
“For weeks Misha was asking what she will be tattooing on me. I kept telling her whatever she draws would be great, so she drew a cute stick figure cat,” said Ivan. “I had other ideas in mind. Good friend Samantha Mack suggested a butt proposal tattoo, and the plan was hatched.
“Five days before the awards show, our Brand Ambassador and tattoo artist Joshua Gray did the honors of tattooing my butt proposal. Then the handful of us who knew about this had to keep this secret and I had to keep Misha from seeing my ass cheek. This was the highlight of my life, and seeing Misha’s reaction sealed it for me. She is truly my soulmate.”
The two have been shooting their nerdy adventures and silly proposals for seven months, surprising each other with theatre rentals, UFO crash sites in the living room and numerous practical jokes – all recorded for their spin-off YouTube channel “2 Russians 1 America” from Alt Erotic’s project “Twisted Crowd”.
“The proposal was by far the most unique and emotional any red carpet can bring, in any form of entertainment,” said Ivan, who documented the proposal teaser for fans in a YouTube video.
“I was so overwhelmed with love by what Ivan surprised me with at the awards,” added Misha. “I have been through a lot the past few months, and this was such a beautiful gesture. I’m so happy and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
