40 Enticing Pin-up Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Inspired by the vintage creations of pin-up masters such as Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas, pin-up girls are not reserved for G.Is anymore.

Pin-up are glamour and sometimes very cheeky, but they are also very talented : they are very few jobs they can't do, from fire fighter to nurse (who else can do both ?) ... Whatever their costume (or absence of costume !), they are a symbol of absolute feminity with their exagerated female shapes and enticing positions. They have evolved a lot from their beginnings with Sailor Jerry, and now, many New School artists are coveting their enormous and cartoonish lips and hips. But they are not that easy to tattoo, and it takes skills to make a great sexy pin-up, so make sure your artists have got already some in his portfolio. Feminists hate them ? Many women have pin-up tattoos to show off their feminity ... They are definitely more positive than Femmes Fatales and always cheer you up !
Anyhow, they are a solid part of tattoo art history and it is always pleasing to look at their smiling faces and their impressive gams. So, if you are looking for some gorgeous pin-up girls tattoos here are 40 that would surely catch your heart ...
