If the van’s a-rockin’…

I love this zebra girl pinup tattoo by Jay at Lotus Tattoo in Sayville, NY… It’s so 1982! If I ever get a van, this is high on my list of what’s getting airbrushed on the side.

    Why is it okay to make fun of some tattooes but not others?

    Who’s making fun?

    I’m not making fun of this tattoo, I honestly love it!!! I also love Trans Ams, punk rock, early metal, and lots of other things from that era. There’s no subtle teasing or mocking in this entry. I sincerely like it!!!!

    i feel like it is slightly wrong that the zebra woman is riding an actual zebra. that’s just me.

    Yeah, but that bit of flash has been around for fucking ages!

    It’s great to see someone put thier own little spin on it finally!

    Is it just me or does it look like her right arm is growing out of her throat?

    Yeah. Maybe she’s gasping for air because that arm in her throat is restricting her breathing.

  2. man I remember seeing this picture in an old penthouse I swiped from my dads collection, a woman was the artist I just dont remember her name….and i dont think the tattoo does the original artwork the proper justice.
    the original piece was seared into my pubescent mind…

  3. It’s a reproduction of an airbrushed painting from Playboy… the artist’s name is “Olivia De Berardinis” or just “Olivia”. In fact I’ve seen a lot of her work in these pages… She inspires a lot of tattoos
