Default Pin up Tattoos - Help please

Hi all, i've not been around on the forums for very long and was hoping for some names to check out. I particular Artists who have their own recognizeable style of Pin up up tattoo...

I know Rachael's Work at Rampant ink in Nottingham and Dawnii's stuff in Birmingham is Awesome too... but are there any other names I should look into in the UK? I don't mind travelling

Would love something original and designed by the artist who tattoos it... Espically around twisting Alice in Wonderland characters

Thanks in Advance

s'not "pinup" persay, but Charlotte at Venus Flytrap in Edinburgh has a sort of trademark style of drawing womenm, you see a lot of her ladies around these parts. Bit like this, although this is a pretty ancient example:

Depend on what type of pin up you want I guess?
I have two by Phil Kyle and two by Louis both differ quite a bit.

I think my boss Hazel would do a good job with a twisted Alice in Wonderland Pin up.
The bizarre & surreal is just up her alley. I'm sure she'd have great fun doing it.
Check out our website. Its at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thanks All *grabs a pen to start scribbling around* As for what sort of pin up... something dark and sexy... but with a hint of Humour Maybe slightly 'cartoony' Like The Alice I already have from Rachael

Not an easy pair to get work by, but Joe Capobianco and Jime Litwalk do some quirky, cartoony stuff. If you like that sort of stuff, there's also Tony Ciavarro. They all work UK conventions, too.

+1 for Matt Diffa, He was sketching a couple of pin ups while I was getting tattooed at Liverpool, he has a natural talent for it, really nice stuff.
