Bev Robinson, best known as Cindy Ray, was one of the first Tattooed pinup girls of Australia. She spent most of her life working as a respected tattoo artist.
In the early 1960s, photographs of a heavily tattooed woman from Australia called Cindy Ray started appearing. She was blonde and beautiful with tattoos on her arms, chest, back and legs and soon became known as "the classy lassie with the tattooed chassis".
She was talked into getting tattooed at 19, and despite having no examples of tattooed people in her family and being a farm worker, she got 4 tattoos on the first night. She still doesn't know how she was convinced that she could make money touring the country as a tattooed model, but she did and that made her what she is today.
This set includes gorgeous photos that capture Cindy Ray from between the 1950s and 1960s.
