Cappy Christmas!

Joe Capobianco isn't just one of the most well-known pinup tattoo artists, but my personal favourite. So for Christmas, I thought I'd show a few of his early works, to get that festive spirit into you! Happy Christmas!

Stin City

These wonderful ladies were done by Stina Nyman. Wow!

Everything's Coming Up Roses

And finally for today, a thing of pure beauty from Valerie Vargas.

The Dark Ages

The picture quality isn't up to snuff, but I'm too big a fan of Derek Noble's Old School work to not post these...


Nice mer-nurse from Chad Stone.

Red Devil

A classic Elvgren interpretation, by Jani.

Vamp Collector

Paul Acker's realistic vampires are a touch good, no? Wonderful use of colour, although I suppose I'm straining to call them pin-ups, perhaps.

Beady Ess Em

Such a fantastic tattoo, by Galen McHatton, although its fair to say a touch unconventional too.

Special Ranch

On the farm with some new Jime Litwalk pinups.

Bettie Page RIP

It's a sad day in Pin-up Land, as the queen of them all, Bettie Page, passed away today. Lets celebrate her by reminding ourselves of the times she's already been in the blog, and have one more for the road, by Marc Vienneau.

EDIT: Needled have a great tribute, with a link to Inked's gallery of Bettie tattoos.

Eve Sleeve!

Tempting Stuff! Done by Alison Manners

Girl Next Door

Don't know who did this, but the pinup in question is former carer and fellatrix for Hugh Hefner, 106, Bridgette Marquardt.


But perhaps my favourite Chip Rutz tattoo is this portrait of Christina Aguilera at her best.

Hot Chip!

And id if to prove the below, check out these wicked Gil Elvgren pinups, again from Chip Rutz.

Faster Pussycat Kill Kill!

I love this cheetahprinted pinup from Chip Rutz, someone who I only discovered for the first time today. His portfolio is shit hot!
