The Magic of PinUp Girls
A lot of people nowadays are very much attracted to the fashion in the past and they are likely to be interested in pin up hairstyles and the 50′s pin-up girls. As such, no one will be able to deny the fact that that for the time that those girls have lived in and advertised for, they were really amazing and of course, just like nowadays, they were important names in the world of show business and music. There are a plethora of posters that were created back then due to this fervor over beautiful women that are not afraid of their sexuality. As such, many posters were sold back then with such girls.
But in the days that we are living in, it is not likely sure that you will find such posters from back then any longer. So that is why there are many people that would love to have a tattoo made which would remind them of the wonderful period they might possibly have lived some years ago in. These tattoos are quite famous and they are so well known because these women from the 50s celebrate femininity and bring an ode to it.
The military was the first to have these tattoos employed and you would most of the times see them stamped on their jet fighters. This was also valid for solidus and sailors that would be a long time away from their homes and they would have them made in order to be reminded what they have left back home. The inspiration for such tattoos often targeted the time’s most famous stars like Marilyn Monroe.
Nowadays though, you will not see Marilyn Monroe any longer and she has been successfully replaced by Megan Fox, the one responsible to make every man on the planet gazing at her, happy. The themes that were used back then have not also been changed and they are still the same, numbering Cowgirl, Angel and Devil.
Many men find that heidi van horne tattoos are a very good way for most men to express how much they appreciate the opposite sex and how much attracted they feel for it. Any woman who is not afraid of her sexuality will certainly be the top attraction of a man.
If you want thus to be sure that you will get a frankie sin tattoo which will be made with style, dedication and the right appreciation, you will need to go to a skin art shop and get one there.
A History of Pin-up Art & Glamour Photography
Pinup, glamour, and ‘cheesecake’ began to gain popularity in the 1930s. It was a time when the image of a pretty girl flourished. Glamour photography has changed over time as the female form, portrayed in art and photography, became more provocative.
During World War II pin-up pictures of scantily clad movie stars were extremely popular among US servicemen. Whether it was a painted calendar, advertisement, or the photo pinups that the G.I.s pinned on their locker doors,and which later adorned the noses of their bomber planes in WW2.
Famous illustrators like Petty, Rolf Armstrong, and Gil Evgren began creating some of the most memorable, technically exquisite ´Americana` ever produced! Calendars, magazine covers and matchbooks became a personal view into the life of the girl next door.
However, until the 1950s, the use of glamour photography in advertising or men’s magazines was highly controversial or sometimes even illegal. Magazines featuring glamour photography were sometimes marketed as “art magazines” or “health magazines”.
Pinup art continued to grow in popularity, and sophistication through the 1950s. Movies were made about Pinup Artists and models, and most actresses of the time were considered pinups first then actresses. Marilyn Monroe was Earl Morans’ favorite model before and after she became a movie star! Numerous celebrities posed for pinup and glamour artists.
Playboy was instrumental in changing the world of glamour photography as the first magazine that focused on nude models and was targeted at the mainstream consumer. In December 1953, Hugh Hefner published the first edition of Playboy with Marilyn Monroe on the cover and nude photos of Monroe inside.
Monroe’s star status and charming personality helped to diminish the public outcry. When asked what she had on during the photoshoot, she replied “the radio”. After Playboy broke through, many magazines followed and this was instrumental in opening the market for the introduction of glamour photography into modern society.
