Some of the old school tattoo designs that you see around are more like an homage to the original design, reminiscent of the first designs. But other tattoos are very faithful to the original design, exactly what you might have seen on someone leaving a tattoo shop in the 1940s.
One of the most common old school tattoo designs showing up is that of a pinup girl. The tattoo image was commonly seen in posters that were sent to soldiers and sailors during WWII. They were supposed to remind the soldiers who they were fighting for. Betty Grable was probably the most famous of the pinup girls. The posters weren’t what we would consider sexy now, but they were pretty hot back in the day. In the early to mid 1900s, most of the people who were getting tattoos were in the military, so it wasn’t a big surprise that there were a lot of tattoos of pinup girls.
One surprise that people might get about who is getting old school tattoo pinup girl designs is that more and more women are getting them. Some women are getting tattoos of themselves as a pin up girl. The women who choose to do this say that they are empowering themselves, and to take back their sexuality. Others do get the pinup girl ink just because they like the design. Of course, there are also men who get pinup girl tattoos.
There are a multitude of reasons that they get their ink. Some men get their girlfriend’s or wife’s pictures done as a pinup girl, because they love that person and want to have her with them always. Others, because they like a design.

Those who have decided to seek the Hawaiian flower instead of a rose or another common flower are making a great decision. It encompasses all the feminine beauty of any other flower with a unique twist. This flower tattoo is typically found in tribal form. Instead of the bright flowy colours we tend to see in flower tattoos it is usually made with big bold black lines, in a more tribal form. It can be added to beautiful other Hawaiian tribal designs such as the sea turtle, mountains and other well known Hawaiian symbols.
These flowers stand for friendship and hospitality just like the Hawaiian people. Another popular Hawaiian flower choice is the lei. These beautiful flowers are found in bright colourful presentations all over the bodies of both men and women. There are also those who have permanently inked these beautiful flowers in lei's around their necks, to symbolize the hospitality and friendship that is presented by Hawaiian natives to visitors to their island. For those who choose the exotic form of the Hawaiian flower tattoo you can ensure it is one to be proud of and to wear happily.
