During WWII, posters of pinup girls were often seen hanging in the lockers of army soldiers as physical reminders of femininity and sexiness while they were fighting overseas. Today, the pinup has evolved greatly, but it still represents the beauty of women. Whether you’re a fan of a traditional pinup girl like this one or an off-the-wall rendition, such as a zombie or a biker chick, you’ll always have a sexy woman with you if you go with this type of tattoo.
Not only does a simple armband tattoo highlight your arm muscles if you’re someone who hits the gym regularly, it is also a great choice for someone who wants a fun design without a deep, profound meaning.

There’s nothing that looks more intriguing to the eye than a ripped skin tattoo. Don’t panic; designs like this don’t require any more damage to the skin than a traditional tattoo does. The unique “ripped” appeal is created by a blend of shadows and colors, creating the effect that a layer of skin has been peeled or torn away to reveal another design underneath. If you opt for a design of this nature, just make sure you are working with a seasoned professional; it takes a lot of practice and expertise to perfect a tattoo as difficult as this one.
Whether it’s a child, a spouse, or perhaps even a grandparent, we all have one special person in our lives that has made a lasting impact on who we are.

A superhero tattoo may seem childish, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that!
