Welcome to the seventh round of Tattoo Tuesday. This week it's on Thursday though. I apologize for that, but Tuesday I was so tired and blogging wasn't happening. Enjoy!
FYI: These are awful pictures. I'll have Hubs take better ones when I get home with a nice camera, not my crap iPhone one.
Regular picture.I don't have a picture of the original pin-up. But we found her picture in a huge book full of pin-up magazine covers.
I absolutely adore pin-up models. They're gorgeous, sexy and full of confidence. Something I've always wished I've had. I thought about trying out for Suicide Girls (WARNING: link not safe for work. Sorry Kate!) to be a more present day pin-up. I actually submitted an application and got accepted. The next step was to send them a set, but I just couldn't get up the nerve to do it.
I'm not 100% happy with Charlie, there are a few things I wish I could change, but I still love her.
I plan on getting another pin-up model eventually. Not sure when, but I know I either want to get it on the side of my calf or thigh. For the next one I plan on doing more research and finding one that can represent me in a pin-up form.
How did Charlie get her name? It's a variation of my best friend [at the times] name. Her name is Charlene and a bunch of her family called her Charlie. And my tattoo has similar features of hers, so we just decided to call her Charlie. It's stuck ever since. [Sadly, Charlene and I aren't friends anymore. Shortly after I started dating Hubs, Charlene stopped speaking to me. I've tried to contact her, but I get no response. Anyways, that's another story.]
