American Pin Up Artist Gil Elvgren

When I think of pin up art, the first thing that comes to mind (besides the beautiful woman) is Gil Elvgren. His work has been popular from from the late 30s until the early 1970s. The style of Gil Elvgrens pinups have greatly inspired the tattoo world. The majority of pin up tattoos that you see are very similar, if not identical, to Gil Elvgrens artwork.
