Pin up tattoos used to be something men get to show just how ~macho~ they are by getting buxom women plastered across their biceps. Those days are, of course, long gone and we now see pin ups on just about any given person in the demographic. Manchester-based tattoo artist Lucy Blue redefines pin up tattoos by giving them an edge that screams ‘grl pwr’ without dressing them down in an effort to look less provocative. Her pin up ladies prove that yes, women can look sexy and fierce at the same time without blatantly objectifying them. In addition to that, many of Lucy Blue's works are also body positive and appreciates women (and mermaids!) in all shapes and sizes.
