    Model Bar Refaeli Bares Inked Up Bod
    The 2009 Sports Illustrated swimsuit covergirl said she isn't scared to bare all -- even if it means using her curvaceous body as a canvas.

    This is one sexy story.

    Model Bar Refaeli sizzles on the cover of July's Esquire magazine, appearing nude with the opening of Stephen King's latest short story "Mortality" inked onto her naked body.

    The 2009 Sports Illustrated swimsuit covergirl and girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio said she wasn't scared to bare all in such a unique way  -- even if it means using her curvaceous body as a canvas. 

    "I haven't seen anything like that ever," the blonde bombshell said of the body art. "So I wanted to be the girl who did it. " 

    Graphic designer James Victor said he used red and black body paint to scribble the first 48 of the story's 6,657 words on her flesh -- and said she was a model example.

    "She's a perfect canvas because her skin is so flawless," artist James Victore told Esquire. "It's going ot be amazing."

    The Israeli model said the secret to taking sexy photos is all in the pose -- aspiring models should learn to accentuate their collarbones, she said.

    "Pop it up, pop it out. It's all in the definition of the bones," instructed Refaeli.

    The stunner also said she aspired to emulate model Heidi Klum.

    "I really like what she's doing," she said. "It's what I picture myself as."

    Not all the attention on Refaeli has been positive.

    Retired Israeli Major-General Elazar Stern earlier this week ripped into the Israeli model for getting an exemption from serving in the nation's mandatory armed forces and said he boycotted companies that employ the model, E! Online reported.

    "I called the companies and the managers of those companies and they told me, 'That's what the youths like.' I told them our job is to stress what the youths should like, not what they like now," he said.
