Pin Up Girl Tattoos

Pin up girl tattoos are tattoo designs of strikingly beautiful women often positioned in sexy poses. They are partially or fully nude, similar to those featured in calendars, on posters and in magazines. These tattoo designs portray the women as “picture perfect” with flowing hair, flawless makeup, long legs and amazing curves generally wear lacy lingerie or perhaps nothing. Many times the designs are sexually suggestive by including props that are situated in strategic spots. Popular among both men and women, men often choose pin up girl tattoos for their sexual attractiveness and beauty while women often choose them as declarations of female empowerment.

World War II helped create a thirsty market for the pin up girl. Their popularity is due in part by servicemen being surrounded by other men for months at a time. In their chaotic world of war, these soldiers found relief and pleasure in the images of pin up girls from back home. They would often carry pictures of these beauties in their wallets or hang them in their rooms. In these early years, pin up girls were almost always dressed in a classy manner; however, there were those that were willing to go further. Bettie Page was one of the hottest pin up girls of her time. She was among the first to come out with snapshots wearing next to nothing or appearing topless through the use of props. Page was also pictured with whips, in bondage and with other women. Betty Grable was also a famous pin up girl, though she was more of a wholesome beauty than Page. Her most famous photo pictured her in a one-piece bathing suit and high heels, smiling over her shoulder. Images such as these eventually became popular pin up girl tattoo designs. Although pin up girls were made popular in the classic or old school tattoo era, they have not changed much since that time other than becoming more scantly clad. The pin up style can be featured in a magnitude of ways: girls dressed as angels, devils, or nurses; wearing lacy lingerie or tight black leather; or, featured with props such as guns or whips. Often, the women stare out at their audience in a confident, flirtatious manner. They may also be drawn in everyday situations, but doing their everyday activities in provocative manners.
