    The idea I'm going in with is a pin-up girl lying on an pin or standing up playing a pin. If she's standing up I want the side or rear view. One of the things I'm trying to work through is the art on the pin. I really don't want the art to be a specific machine. TAF for instance. It's a great pin but I don't want to be stuck with that one pin forever. I'm thinking the BBB. I dont own it and never will but it's like the holly grail of pinball and it incorporates different themes. If not BBB then in going to make it genirec. The pinup girl MUST be a long haired brunett or my wife will kill me. If I can incorporate the pinside logo somehow, subtly, I would like to just for kicks. I'm open to ideas or suggestions. It you have an image I might like please post it. I try to get a tattoo in most of the countries I go to, if there not too 3rd world. Trinidad has some good tattoo artist it seems.

    Cool! Working on my sleeves with WAY of INk.

    I would have went with a pin focusing on the backglass and to incorporate her in to its art. Big fan of a made up pin theme. Zombie : )

    I would think a design with a nod towards the classic EM's would be much cooler than the over rated bbb

    completely agree. Im looking at EM's now. Any suggestions? What EM would look nice under her? Need to find a pic from the propre angle to show the artist. So far i havent found one local that's even heard of a pinball machine.

    I always liked this idea for a tat:

    shoot, can't get the link to look right.

    Anyways...

    Centaur PF, look at the girl btw the flippers holding up the orb. Orb can be painted blue...Girl has a beautiful backside.

    Include flippers in and a bit of the surrounding artwork.

    Pin theme - Check
    Hot woman - Check
    Great Game - Check!

    I also love this machine. Its the first one i thought of...but...its going to be the cabinet showing. The cabinet is pink and yellow.

    Centaur

    I like this. Ive never really taken note of the girl.......Are you ever going to get it? If not I might put it on my list of future possibilities

    Well, at 45, my Tattoo days might be over...I don't have any! back in the day, you were truly a bad-ass if you had tattoos...now it seems like everyone has em.

    I dunno, if I ever did get it, and you got it, we would have to meet up...that would be a hoot!

    I would love to see what the artist could do with that design. There is some much cool artwork on that pin, it is crazy.

    While playing pinball in Vegas, I met a guy fron the Netherlands that said BOP was his "first love". He Then pulled up his shirt to show us his back, completely covered by a tat of the BRIDE! In FULL COLOR!!! Until that moment, I thought no-one was a bigger pinhead than me! I was bad wrong!

    Just left the artist. He drew up my piece fast and it's perfect. Can't get it till Saturday night though. I can't get I the salt water for two weeks after its done. I'm going to Tobago fri night and coming back sat night then flying home Sunday morning. Dosent leave much time for a tattoo. I may have to stay out of the water in Tobago. That's not going to make the wife happy. Decisions, decisions.

    Much of the cabinet artwork on the sides of e-m pins from 60's & early/mid 70's is not very impressive.
    How about considering main cabinet artwork of Bally's 1978 Playboy,
    but put something different for backbox side art.
    For backglass art work (if it will be visible on the tatoo),
    then what about Arkon Automaten's 1980 Sexy Girl. See pics on IPDB.

    The Mata Hari side art would make nice tat-art I think...

    There's always Paragon to consider...

    Almost got a tat once.

    Walked into Sailor Eddie's parlor in Philly. I must have been 19 or 20. I spent about an hour carefully picking out the one I wanted and thought looked classy-a Black Rose in full bloom.

    the artist asked what name I want in the ribbon. I said none, leave it blank. He replied, "No, I won't do that anymore. The last three people he but that on with a blank ribbon all died or were killed 30 days from getting the tat."

    It was a memorial rose.

    I thanked him and left remaining tatless as I do to this day.

    That's a cool idea... you could put a tennis ball in the hollow of her back and see how far you can shoot it up her spine!!

    Yea, I don't think I would have gotten one either. But you should have picked something else. But there not for everyone.

    Its wayyyy bigger than I thought also but im 6ft 3in and 230lbs so it had to be big to look right. Thats what the guy had drawn up when I got there so I went with it. Im happy i did now. Its still swollen and red. When it heals it's going to look great. It took 6 full hours. I have lots of tats but ive never sat for 6 hours before. The last hour was painful. Very, very painful. But its done and done forever. I love it. Its def my favorite.

    For the price I couldn't resist.2200 tt in US dollars is $366. I get 6 to 1 on the dollar if I go to the embassy cashier. It's a $800-$1000 tat in the states all day. Now I have something to remember trinidad. I've wanted a pinup girl and a pin tattoo for a while. Since I killed two birds with one stone I need an idea for the other shoulder

    I just wanted to put out a warning if your traveling and want to get a tat. Most of these 3rd world countries don't have any laws on tattoos. Many of these places are not as sanitary as shops in the states. One of the shops I went into used a wooden table as a work bench.BIG no,no. The work must be done on stainless steel. Some of these places boil and reuse needles. I know enough about tats to spot a dirty or unsanitary shop. If you've never gotten a tat or don't know all the ins and outs don't get one while traveling. I looked and looked for a tattoo shop that was run properly. I finally found a guy that was trained in the states and followed the rules we use in the states even though he didn't have to. If I got a tat in the first place I walked into it could have been bad.And ALWAYS, ALWAYS make them open the needle in front of you. I even ask to inspect to package for damage before its opened. NO TATTOO IS WORTH YOUR LIFE!!!
