History of Pin-Up Tattoos
When the pin-up tattoo comes to mind, everyone thinks of sailors and the 1950s. These became a classic in tattoo history. Typically, the woman has a large chest and posed in an erotic gesture. For desperate sailors at sea for months at a time without the company of a woman, the idea of this tattoo formed in order to bring one with him in the form of a tattoo. The name of the pin-up tattoo came of course from pin-up magazines.
Pin-up girls often have a theme and represent someone such as a nurse, an actress, the statue of liberty, a firewoman, a racecar girl, a singer, Amelia Earhart, or a sailor. The clothing the pin-up girl wears is typically a low-cut shirt or dress, or simply a bra or some sort of lingerie. On the bottom half, she usually wears knee-highs, lingerie tights with thin straps, or fishnets (if anything at all).
There are many modern styles of pin-up girl tattoos today. Modern variations take place and people play around with the original style of the traditional pin-up tattoo. Regardless of which style you prefer, Shamrock Tattoo Co. can create the Pin-up girl of your dreams.
