STOCKTON, Calif., June 24 (UPI) -- Jeremy Meeks, the felon who had his "sexy" mugshot go viral last week, may be able to enter the world of modeling upon his release.

Blaze Modelz reportedly told TMZ that "gangster models" are currently in vogue and they could get him $15,000 to $30,000 a month contracts with top fashion houses like Versace and Armani.

Another unnamed modeling agency said they are also interested in working with Meeks when he gets out of prison.

The numerous tattoos don't seem to be a problem for either agency. Blaze said it even likes the teardrop tattoo below his right eye -- a symbol associated with gangs.

Meeks is being held on $900,000 bail under serious weapons charges.
