Despite swearing off getting any more tattoos, Avril Lavigne seems to have had a memory lapse during a recent girl’s night out.

The 26-year-old Canadian singer appears to have impulsively decided to get inked during an outing with her girlfriends on Saturday.

“Girls day!!!!!! Listening to my new record with my girls and catching up,” she tweeted. “Uh-oh girls day turning into girls night … Should I get a tattoo???? Haha.”

Lavigne kept her more than 720,000 Twitter followers updated on her miniadventure and provided a clue to the design she chose to get permanently inked with.

“It’s comes in handy all the time, it can hurt you, but at the same time keep you together, safety first!” teased the singer, who asked fans to guess what design she chose while posting pictures of the inking process.

“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.
