Pics are cool but still think the tattoed parts of bodies destroy the overall aestetics and mood. Still even in kitch good taste should be present

I’m agreeing totally with Nelly – To be honest, this looks like a photoshoot for SuicideGirls :/

Except for #4, #5, #6 and #8

#5 is really good, because it could have been in a 50s commercial for tennis rackets.

#6 is pretty good aswell, because she looks like a broad, that could have been painted on a B-17 Flying Fortress

I don’t get that vibe at all and didn’t notice it until I read the comments about the tattoos. I guess I looked at it as playing on old colors/arrangements and poses with updated models, with the intent to indicate the personal attempts at expression on the model, i.e. the larger motif that makes suicide girls so popular: these are girls acting as your spectacle (pinup models in sexually appealing poses to a consumer) but notice they are enfranchised and expressing themselves (tattoos on their bodies)

Tattooed girls are the new pinups…but this photographer is not the best in this thematic… sorry, i don’t really like this work.
He has got many other better works on his portefolio.

To be honest I think the tattoos are a wonderful twist and by no means think they are in ‘bad taste’ like Nelly says.

The tattoos are what draws me to these images. The woman on the phone is especially beautiful.

I think the tattoos take away from the 50′s image a tad, but remembering that the 50′s were a time of sexual discrimination to some extent, I like it, in that the tattoos seem a bit like a statement of independent women. All in all, too, it’s very capturing of hair styles and clothing of 50′s. good work.

I prefer #3-4, the tattoos are nice, but maybe I just prefer independent ladies who don’t conform to rigid male stereotypes about sophistication.

Didn’t want to stigmatize models or artist work. Just an opinion. But was great to read all those comment, it gives another point of view on artworks. Thanks for sharing )

don’t think you get the idea folks – it would be simply more of the same old vintage stuff without the tattoos! Looks great like that in my opinion – makes you look twice (or even more often)…

from a technical point of view, it is a disaster. Plus the tattoos really spoil the pin-up idea.

To really take these photos to the next level try shooting on location, its easy to photograph in the studio and than place them on plain backgrounds. Challenge yourself.
