65 Hottest Pin Up Girl Tattoo Designs. Are you ready to see the sexiest pin up girl tattoos the world has ever seen? Of course you are, you naughty bastard 😉 Let’s get started on this visual adventure…
Pin Up Girl Tattoo Designs: Everything You Need to Know
One of the oldest, most recognizable tattoo designs is that of the pin up girl. The pin up is a woman you find so alluring that you just want to pin her picture to the wall so you can see her all the time. Traditional pin up girl tattoo art features a beautiful woman, usually sitting or lying down, with a come hither seductive look upon her face. These tattoos have been around almost as long as tattooing has been an art. The style has changed with the times, but the pin up girl tattoo is still a staple in nearly every shop. She may wear less now, and come in many different styles, but she is a classic timeless beauty nevertheless.
The traditional pin up girl tattoo usually incorporates a military theme, as these tattoos were worn by soldiers and sailors far from home. They wanted to have a pretty lady to accompany them, so they went with the prettiest woman they could find. This beauty is shown in a classic pose, hands behind the head, chest out. She is wearing a marine corp hat and a marine themed body suit. This is a perfect example of a classic pin up girl tattoo.
64. Lovely Latina
This lovely lady is a more modern version of the pin up girl She is looking down, which is not typical in most pin ups. Usually pin up girls are looking directly into the eyes of those looking at her. It increases their appeal. This one, however, is so wonderfully well done, that it doesn’t matter. She is accented with a lovely flower, a buzzing bee and some wonderful red highlights both on her body and behind her. The red really gives this piece some flare.
63. Living Dead Girl
Rob Zombie might have been onto something, huh? This atypical pin up girl tattoo is still incredibly appealing, despite the fact that she appears to be undead. She still has that fifties style charm and look to her, even down to the cute little puppy in her arms. Not all pin up girls are your regular hotties, so it’s okay to get super creative with them.
62. Queen Bettie
Perhaps the most recognizable of all pin up girls in Betty Page. She took the art to a whole other level and was incredibly risque for her time. I’m sure she was pinned the walls of many a young man. As such, she is the perfect subject for a pin up girl tattoo, portrayed here in this red patent leather get up.
61. Big, Blonde, and Beautiful
Pin up girls come in all shapes and sizes just like real women. This big girl is one of the few to show actual “nudity” in the form of fully exposed breasts. Even with her bigger size, she fits all the pin up girl basics with her seductive look and sexy outfit.
60. Snip and Clip
This lovely lady is another traditional piece. I really like the blue background to set it off, and the colors are phenomenal. This is definitely an amazing rib piece. Such amazing detail! For more awesome rib tattoos, click here.
This engaging lass is done in full profile and sans color. She is still incredibly intriguing and the mask gives her an air of mystery. This is a beautifully detailed, incredibly well done tattoo and she does the title of pin up girl proud.
58. Indian Princess
This Native American beauty comes complete with leather moccasins, feather, and tomahawk. Even with all the clothing and the deadly weapon, she still grabs your attention so that you can’t look away!
57. Musical Maiden
This pin up tattoo features an unconventional pose, lying on her back with her lets up in the air. The background work in this one is amazing, with the large flower and music notes. There is very little color to this one, just enough to make it pop. If you like the music bit best, check out these awesome music note tattoos.
56. Snow Queen
What is better than a beautiful lady to get you through the cold winters in North Dakota? A beautiful lady with a cold beer, of course. This traditionally styled piece has it all, even down to the blue tattoos on the figure herself. This is for all you Yuppers.
55. Dead Head
Day of the dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is a Mexican holiday honoring those who have passed. It usually incorporates sugar skulls and decorative face painting or make up. This lovely lady is clearly celebrating this holiday. The skull tattoo on her shoulder is a nice touch, as well as the sugar skull decoration on her face. There is a whole page dedicated to amazing day of the dead tattoos here.
There is a pin up girl tattoo for every season and theme you can imagine. This beauty is clearly a witch, but not the wicked green kind. She is done in lovely dark purples and blacks, riding her broom in the dark, swirling night sky. This is a wonderfully done tattoo with a lot of detail to the shading and background!
53. Through Glass
Betty Page is depicted here, well okay, half depicted here. She is holding a glass, which when looked through appears to show the skeleton underneath. There is a lot of skeletal elements in this tattoo and it has a really cool look. It is a pretty interesting take on the pin up.
52. Hot Out of the Oven

It’s a good thing she is pretty. She is definitely no homemaker. She burnt the cookies, but we still love her anyway. How could we not? The best part about this whole tattoo is the red dress and heels. What an amazing color job.
51. Here Comes Treble
Fifties style and glamour are often found in pin up girl tattoos art. This is because it is such an iconic era, when women were starting to reach out beyond their comfort zones. Some fifties memorabilia makes its way into this one in the shape of the classic microphone swing. I love how it is all worked into the treble clef design.
50. Rockabilly Chic
Rockabilly style is more of a neo-mod fifties throw back look, when the women had baby bangs and the men had greased pompadours. It is an interesting subculture today. Most of these people are also tattoo enthusiasts, which makes this lovely lady doubly fun.
49. Ultra Traditional
It doesn’t get much more traditional than a classically styled pin up girl tattoo with classically styled tattoos of her own.
48. Double Trouble
Can’t decide between a blond and a brunette? Don’t! This piece shows a two headed pin up, with a single peek a boob. She is wonderfully done, and as I said before, there is a little something for everyone where pin up girls are concerned.
47. Pretty in Peacocks
Throughout the years, the pin ups have gotten less and less modest. Here is another exposed breast, in fact, this lady is entirely nude. She is left with only a couple of brightly colored birds to protect her from prying eyes. If peacocks aren’t really your style, you can check out some other fine feathered friends here.
46. For the Gear Heads
Car guys will love this classic lady sitting upon a piston. Women and cars are two things most men really enjoy, so why not incorporate both into a memorable tattoo?
45. Snake Charmer
Okay, maybe I misspoke about the amount of exposed breasts in the art of pin up girl tattoo. It is, however, irrelevant on an insane piece like this. Why is she being swallowed by a snake? I feel as though there is some sort of innuendo I am missing here. Either way, this piece is done in amazing colors that really pop. I love the style and that magnificent red underbelly of the snake. What a wonderful tattoo.
44. Sleepy Beauty
This girl in striped pajamas is another wonderful example of the pin up. She is sultry and stunning without being overly sexual. There is something altogether coy and fun about this one, including the cute little cushion she is kneeling on.
43. Strong and Beautiful
Rosie the Riveter is a classic icon from the WWII era, and women have been striking her pose since her ads were put up. This lady strikes the same Rosie pose with all the gusto and conviction Rosie did in her day. I love the addition of the polka dotted head scarf and the big blue eyes!
42. Classic Hollywood
This is so reminiscent of the classic Hollywood era! I love the black and white, and the seductive pose. I am sure this actually is one of the classic Hollywood actresses that made films great at the time, I just don’t know her name. She is incredibly lovely, down to the lacy negligee and garters. This is a very realistic take on the pin up girl tattoo and I love it.
41. Hello Nurse
The image of the sexy nurse is another that we seem to be obsessed with. This nurse has it all; from her red heels and hose, clear up to the tip top of her little nurses hat. I don’t know what it is that makes the idea of the sexy nurse so appealing, but whatever it is, she has it in spades.
40. Sock Hop
To me, the best part about this one isn’t even the girl, although she is wonderfully portrayed in a full action dancing shot. What stands out for me is the color and detail on the jukebox. From neon to wood grain, this one just pops. It almost looks like a Norman Rockwell painting. It is fun and high energy, not your typical pin up, but still sexy enough to make the cut.
Waiting for her Navy man to return, this beauty stands tall, saving her hat from the wind at her back. The muted colors on her skin and dress are wonderfully done. The see through effect of her skirt is a nice touch, as are the little accents of the tiny stars around her.
38. Howdy Pardner
Country girls have always had a strong appeal. There is just something about jean shorts and boots, right? This one has absolutely no color and is done completely in grey scale, but she still comes across brilliantly. The look on her face is more forlorn than seductive, and the detail and shading in her clothes is just wonderful. You don’t always need bright, vibrant colors to make a tattoo stand out.
37. Ring Queen
The idea of a tough woman is always a good one. This lady takes her licks and keeps on ticking, if we can judge by the nice shiner she is sporting. The banner behind her proclaiming that “life hits hard I hit harder” is a nice background to this bad ass babe.
36. Hot For Teacher
Everyone harbors a fantasy for that super nerdy, well put together lady. There has to be some kind of crazy under all that polished chic. That, more than anything, is what makes this one so intriguing. She is dressed like your average librarian, but that look in her eyes tells a different story. This one is wonderfully done by the artist, it is realistic and highly detailed. It almost looks like an actual painting!
35. Bio Hazard Babe
War is hell. However, it can always be spruced up with something like this. The first red head featured on this list appears seated on a “big nuke” being dropped from the sky. Her shirt is just short enough to reveal a little under boob, and her skirt slit just enough to give your imagination room to take over.
34. Death Becomes Her
The theory of duality seems to be portrayed here. She is beautiful on the outside, but the other half of her is grotesque. I’m not sure what the relevance is but I really like this style and how it is all done in darker hues. The deep blues of the flowers make her lips really pop against the rest of the shading.
Mrs. Page does feature prominently here because, lets face it, this is her domain. There will never be a better subject for a pin up girl tattoo than the devilish Betty page.
This tattoo is a highly stylized version of the Australian comic book character Tank Girl and I couldn’t resist putting her in here. She is, after all, my favorite. This piece portrays her as more cutesy than she usually looks but it has all the classic Tank Girl elements, and that really makes it stand out. This is a fun piece because, how could it be Tank Girl and not be fun?
31. Hang onto Your Hats
Not all pin up girl tattoo work needs to be large pieces. There is something appealing about this little hideaway piece high on the thigh. It is cute, and the blue really stands out. I like the fact that she won’t be seen unless the wearer really wants her to be. That in itself is a bit seductive. If you are considering a thigh piece, check out some of these ideas by clicking this link.
30. I Like Big Bows
This seductive over the shoulder look is a nice touch to the pin up girl tattoo. I like the idea of the large bow and her big flirty eyes begging us to follow along.
The term “legs that go all the way up” is portrayed in it’s finest here. It’s almost as if two-thirds of her is leg. She could vault without poles. We know what this guy likes, am I right?
28. Maid to Order
This is the kind of pose pin up girl tattoo art is made for. This is a stunning piece of work. The roulette wheel background really sets her off and the sweeping up under the skin is a really nice touch. You don’t see many like this, with the thick outlines and detailed shading. This is a masterpiece in ink.
27. Hot Cross Buns
“I should be in the kitchen” proclaims this colorful little nugget. With her seductive wink and minimal wardrobe I think she may belong in another room. If this is typical cooking attire, it must get pretty hot in that kitchen. I love these colors the most, the bright pink is an amazing contrast to the teal behind her. And the writing done in red rather than black is a really good idea. Who can resist that sly wink.
26. Green with Envy
Seductive stage dancers and performers are perfect for high color pieces. Her purple corset and gloves are wonderfully matched with the green feathers of her giant fan. At least I think it’s a giant fan. Whatever it is, the color is amazingly well done.
25. Damaged Beauty
This girl looks like she has seen it all. This is a woman with a lot going on, but no matter what she has been through she is a fighter. You can see it in her eyes. This is another unusual pin up girl tattoo, but there is something incredibly wondrous about it.
24. Aye Matey
In a twist on the nautical theme, here we have a pirate pin up complete with a hook for a hand. The use of color in this one is what really makes it pop, it is just an incredible piece with a lot going one. Everything about it is so perfectly rendered that it all just seems to belong, and that makes is a really engaging tattoo.
23. Call Me Maybe
This is a super fun take on the pin up girl tattoo. She is lying down, talking on the phone with a huge grin on her face. Most pin up girls are too serious or trying to be incredibly seductive and usually don’t have such a smile. Maybe this was a take on a more innocent vibe. She is wonderfully done and is just fun to look at. I can’t help but smile when I see her.
The yellow background and amazing blue bubble are honestly the first things that caught my eye here. The woman is also wonderfully done, with great details like the lines of light on her shiny skin. That is a great addition. Also, seeing her in her boudoir routine, curlers in her hair, putting on make-up is a nice change from the full on sex kitten look of a lot of pin ups.
21. Scene Girl
You can never go wrong with a scene/punk princess. The vibrant colors from her hair to her stockings really make this a knock out piece. Even the stars have a unique look to them. Every thing about this tattoo is vibrant and fun, even down to the heart in her hands.
Not really to much to talk about with this realistic looking naughty school girl. This is a classic sex fantasy and translates so well in to tattoo art. This is a truly beautiful piece.
19. Gypsy Appeal
This lovely Gypsy lady is incredibly seductive, with her scarf and sidelong glance!
Country lass on a fence. Every cowboys dream girl.
17. Magic Lady
This one appears to be a magicians apprentice seated in front of a raging flame. I really like the color and the implied naughtiness of the cane she is wielding. With her hat cocked at such a jaunty angle, she gives the impression of being a girl you don’t want to mess with.
It is hard to resist an Anime girl in a barely there bikini. It is especially hard if she is packing serious heat.
15. Help Wanted
Another recurring aspect of the pin up girl tattoo is the idea of the damsel in distress. Here she is trying to change her tire, with a nonplussed look on her face, her skirt riding up immodestly. This is the kind of tattoo that needs no color, it is perfect in every respect just the way it is.
14. Total Domination
The dominatrix is a nice twist on the pin up girl tattoo. Framed here by the violent fuchsia background, she is incredibly intimidating with all that black leather and the riding crop.
13. Laid Out
This one has an intriguing pose to it, with her all scrunched up. To me it looks incredibly uncomfortable, but what do I know about being a pin up girl?
12. Anchors Away
In homage to the nautical origins of tattoos, this pin up girl is posed with a large anchor. The anchor has many meanings when it comes to tattoos, and if you want to learn more, or just check out more awesome anchor tattoos, check out this page.
11. Beach Bunny
Bathing suits are the best way to portray a pin up girl. This is partly because the bathing suit is a way to show a lot of skin without being overly risque.
10. Flawed Princess
This princess in purple seems to have had a bite taken out of her.
9. Keep on Trucking Pin Up Girl Tattoo
This must be a truckers lady. She appears to be wearing Leroy’s shirt, and is, presumably, seated in from of his truck. The absolute best thing about this piece is the colors, hands down. I love every inch of color in this one. Here is a place to buy pin up girl tattoo clothing.
8. Green Eyed Girl
There is just something incredibly sexy about a green eyed girl in nothing but an apron. This particular tattoo is amazingly done in light, pale colors, which is something you don’t see often. I love that it’s not overly bright, but it is still colorful.
7. My Kind of Crazy
We all know Harley Quinn is a little nuts, but we all love her anyway, right? Of course we do. This cute little rendition of Harley is so well done, right down to the smoke coming from her happy little bomb.
6. Are You Calling Me Fett?
No pin up collection would be complete without at least one Star Wars pin up for the ultra space nerd in all of us. You would expect an nearly naked version of Leia or Queen Amidalla, but this fella went with the most bad ass of all bounty hunters in the galaxy. Let’s all hope this female rendition of Boba Fett can live up to the name of her male counterpart. For more out of this galaxy Star Wars themed tats, check out this gallery.
5. Pit Crew
The idea of a woman who knows her way around a car is incredibly appealing. This woman has it all. The Nascar logo on her thigh completes this whole themed piece nicely.
4. Mad Bomber
Women in heroic roles seems to be a theme with pin up girl tattoos. This lovely Red Baron is riding a war plane into battle, surrounded by the smoke of the war raging around her. The old timey look of the plane is incredibly fun, and it makes for an interesting piece.
3. Dead Sea
This green goddess seems to have been lost at sea. She was clearly part of a pirate ship, but now she is green with death, has had a good sized chunk taken out of her side, and is surrounded by blood. Clearly she has seen better days.
2. Chesty LaRue
Most pin up girl tattoos make an appearance on the arms or legs, but this lovely little number found herself right over the heart. It’s a good thing she is so loved, because she clearly won’t make it far as a maid. She seems to be making more of a mess than she is cleaning. Judging by the look on her face, however, I think cleaning may be the last thing on her mind.
1. Poker Anyone
I wouldn’t bet it all against this lady, she is clearly holding all the cards. With her sassy wink and topless demure pose, this girl takes the cake for sensual pin up girl. She is wonderfully well done with no color and is simply too cute for words.
