Pin-up girl

“Pin up girl. A girl whose pshysical charms, attractive personality, or other glamorous qualitys make her suitable subject of a photograph pinned up on an admirers wall.”

Modern pin-up’s theese days often have tattoos.


The term pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos . The term was first attested to in English in 1941 however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s.

The pin-up images could be cut out of magazines or newspapers, or be from postcard or chrono-litographs, and so on. Such photos often appear on calendars, which are meant to be pinned up anyway. Later, posters of pin-up girls were mass-produced. They became an instant hit.

Many pin-ups were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. One of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable. Her poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of G.I.’s during World War II. Other pin-ups were artwork, often depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson Girl, drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. The genre also gave rise to several well-known artists specializing in the field, including Alberto Vargas, Gil Elvgren, and George Petty, and numerous notable artists, such as Art Frahm.

Not sure about the name of the other two.



On her right inner forearm there is a beautiful tattoo of Marilyn Monroe. Her feelings for Maryilyn Monroe is well known and she probably knows more about her idol than anybody else, especially after having read Barbara Leaming’s 464 page long Marilyn Monroe biography. Emotions and feelings are definitely involved here as Megan Foxis very empathetic towards her idol. This bond began when Megan Fox was a little child and recalls crying every time she heard Marilyn Monroe on TV.

Look closely and enjoy the work of this body art, this is the favorite of all Megan Fox tattoos for many of her fans. It’s really exceptional and not only that, it also has that very cool sixties thing going for kit. I mean when Megan Fox is wearing a Marilyn Monroe-esque dress and the Marilyn tattoo is flashing, it’s just an incredible scene of beauty and fashion.
