Jeremy 'Dreamy McMug' Meeks

Model Prisoner

Could Make $30K a Month

6/23/2014 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jeremy Meeks -- aka Dreamy McMug -- stands to make tens of thousands of dollars just for looking like a hot gangster.

Blaze Modelz tells TMZ ... "gangster models" are hot right now.  The agency claims they can book Meeks with high-end fashion houses -- like Versace and Armani -- and he could rake in $15 - $30K a month. 

Blaze also says they actually like Meeks' face tattoos ... even the gang-revealing teardrop.  They thinks it's edgy and sexy.  They didn't mention the Crip tattoo on his neck, but that can be covered.

Another modeling agency -- that did not want to be named -- tells us ... once Meeks is a free man they'd like to work with him as well.

Here's the problem.  Meeks is currently being held on $900,000 bail with no prospect of getting out soon.  He's a convicted criminal facing serious weapons charges and could be a little long in the tooth before he gets sprung.

Never too late to change. Look at Danny Trejo, Tim Allen, Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Wahlberg, Martha Stewart etc., etc. First thing to do is Meeks needs to remove those god*amn gang tattoos or his past will ALWAYS be there.

It no longer pays to be a hard working, honest citizen in America. You either have to be a rapper or a gangster with a low life direction to make it rich in this society. Now I understand why other countries look down at American people.

Teardrop tat... someone's 'girlfriend' in prison ... That helps sell products now? Who wants to hire him? The kardashians?

From an ex-gang member I spoke with, the 'teardrop' represents a killing / murder that the gang member has made. Any modeling company that hires this piece of sh*t will be boycotted. And you women that Luke thus "bad boy" type, get some professional mental help.

Well the modeling agency should post his bail in exchange for modeling. Sounds fair. And as annoying as thus story may be, id much rather see this than Miley's dirty crotch or Farrahs sex tape leaking for the millionth time.

Bad habits dont die young. His bail is certainly high for gun charges, and of course his family will make up anything to have him look like a model citizen. And the donation fund? Donate to a real thing, cancer research, feeding the hungry and so on. Hes obviously guilty of something more that they have yet to disclose.
