Tattooed pinup women are a special type of sexy.

There’s just something about the mix of vintage style, playful nudity, red-lipped beauty, and gorgeous ink that make tattooed pinups undeniably alluring.


What is Pinup?

Many people may have heard the term “pin-up,” but they may not know where it comes from.

The definition of pin-up itself tends to be misunderstood, so before we show off our favorite tattooed pinup girls, here is a quick rundown on the sultry subculture.

The term pin-up was introduced in English in 1941, but the practice is documented back to the 1890s (as of now).

“Pin-ups” referred to simpler times when scantily-clad or nude photos would be “pinned-up” on walls, desks, calendars, etc.

This style of cheeky photo became popular culture in America when these types of images were mass-produced into posters in the 1950s. That is why so many popular pinups of today sport a retro style reminiscent of the ‘50s.

Pin-up style has a level of cosplay to it which is probably why we love it so much!
