There’s something incredibly sexy and totally timeless about pinup girl ink. Artists from around the country have achieved pinup girl perfection. If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are a few of the pieces we love most.

This Bettie Page piece from Sophie Lewis pays a fitting tribute to the icon who started it all.
