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!

These wonderful ladies were done by Stina Nyman. Wow!

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.

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.

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.
