Trashy or Classy.

Ive been considering getting one on the inside of my left thigh. Thoughts? 🙂 any pin-up girl tattoos people want to share? I like the old 50’s style with a modern twist…I love Katy Perry.

Im new here so take my advice for what you think it worth.

It all depends on the artist. Ive seen really classy pinup girl tats, and Ive seen really trashy pinup girl tats. Its all about finding that right artist. Or atleast it is in my opinion.

nothing is trashy when done right. check out gil elvgren portraits for reference and depending where youre from shane oneil and/or mike devries will do a great job.

They are cool, especially if they are in color.

All depends on the artist. I think pinup busts are awesome…like Sailor Jerry style. Full body pinups can either be nice or stupid tho. Cartoon looking ones are pretty lame…while realistic or old school ones are pretty cool.

I love pinup tattoos. I’m getting one soon on my right leg. I think they are really classy if they are done right, and have meaning behind them for you. I say go for it. What kind theme are you wanting for your pinup?

I have what I think is a pretty nice pinup from Shane O’Neill in my album but I noticed this thread was started last June so I decided not to repost it.
