Pin up girl tattoo designs are very popular with both men and women, and are a great way to personalize your ink as you can choose from a wide variety of poses, outfits and themes. The pin up girl became popular during the Second World War as a way to keep up the morale of men in the armed forces, and it was a natural progression to move from pinned up pictures of women to have them actually tattooed onto the body. Depending on the position your pin up girl is in, your tattoo will look awesome on larger parts of the body such as your arm, leg or back, and including a pin up girl in a half-sleeve tattoo looks amazing.
Classic 1950s Pin Up Girl Tattoo Designs
The traditional pin up girl tattoo design is inspired by 1950s pin up girl art, whether that be from photos or paintings, and your 1950s pin up girl should have the classic elements of 1950s hair and fashion. This includes 1950s hairstyles, archetypal circle skirt dresses and stockings and suspenders.
Horror Pin Up Girl Tattoo Designs
A great twist on a classic pin up tattoo design is to have a horror theme, by making your pin up girl a vampire, zombie, Frankenstein’s monster or any other scary character you can think of! Zombie pin up girls are a fun and fantastic idea, and you can choose a traditional theme such as waitress or soldier girl, and give them green, rotting skin, evil eyes and blood dripping from their mouths to make the perfect zombie.
