Cool Betty Boop Tattoo Mixture

These Betty Boop tattoos will show you why it was emerging as one of the 20th century’s biggest sex symbols.

Since hitting TV screens in 1930, this sassy flapper has been raising the eyebrows of many viewers, with her flamboyant dress sense and large, oversized head. Emerging as one of the 20th century’s biggest sex symbols, there has been adapted many times and transformed in to numerous forms of cool Betty Boop tattoo mixtures.
Originally modelled on singer Helen Kane - from whom she gets her signature tagline “Boop-Oop-a-Doop” - as a 1930’s jazz flapper, she evolved very quickly into the first cartoon character to fully embody a sexual woman. Unfortunately, censorship in 1934 transformed Boop from the suggestive persona we know and love, in to a more docile single ‘housewife’ which eventually was her downfall.

From a more traditional red/black dress to the sexy sailor gal and everything in between, Betty has just about everything to form that perfect pin up style. Below we have some examples of how diverse this timeless character can be.
