Photographer Katerina Katonik Heats Up Cold Weather & Christmas Mornings

Christmas Pin Ups by Katerina Katonik (8)by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by Katerina Katonik, Model, Polli Smile

A lot has happened since we first published this post last year. Both the photographer and the model have gotten married, so bad luck for us, but Christmas magic for them.

We were very excited when we made contact with photographer Katerina Katonik from Voronezh, Russia. We absolutely love her style and this set was just perfect to start the holiday season.

With hints of Gil Elvgren in the background and her own edgy style carrying the vintage theme forward into the 21st century, Katerina takes us on a journey with Pin Up girl Polli Smile, who is drop dead gorgeous to say the least. And our new photographer friend seems to pretty hot herself. But that’s another story.

Katerina says she was born in “… Syktyvkar, Russia, were it is always a cold Russian winter with bears.” We are glad she survived those winters and bears, because she really heats things up now. It is pretty amazing that our new friend only just picked up a camera three years ago. We can’t even take a proper picture of our dog!

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of Belgian Band, Smooth and the bully boys, with their version of Elvis Presley’s “Baby let’s play house.” Although we prefer to play Christmas morning with the girls ;)

Rockabilly Girl by Photographer Jarek Kozlowski

Rockabilly Girl, Pin Up Girl by  Jarek Kozlowski  (10)by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by Jarek Kozlowski of Kozjar’s Photography Model Monika Gruchala, Make Up & Hair Dominika Rostankowska,  Shot at the  Casino Diner, Camera: T-Max400 B&W negative film with 85 i 50mm lenses.

Taking you into the weekend is this very special first part of a two part set by photographer Jarek Kozlowski based out of Gdansk, Poland. Simply titled “Rockabilly Girl,” we find it to be simply delightful.

While Jarek’s bio says he specializes in street photography, architecture, and portraits this photo set with the beautiful Monika Gruchala shows that Jarek can also capture a moment in time and take us back to another.

We have adored this set ever since we first came across it and think Jarek has truly captured the look and spirit of a Rockabilly Girl through his wonderful photography. We have a friend living in Gdansk, but now we really have a reason to go and visit.

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of Freddie & the Filos out of Siville, Spain with “Rockabilly Boogie.”

Who Knows About Ink, French Photographer Nilakantha Knows It And Owns It

12124_599820676759503_876633093_nby Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by Nilakantha Univers of Nilakantha Photographies

For almost a decade our friend, Nilakantha of Paris, France has been creating a universe for us. A universe where color, shapes, and focus paint the sky for our enjoyment.

The characters in this universe are edgy and beautiful Inked and Alternative models in which Nilakantha adds his own colorful sunsets to their allready covered and colorful skin.

As we said in our first feature on his work, “Inked Girls Gallery 142 – The Nilakantha Photographies Edition,”

“…..he does not dabble in photography of alternative models and inked girls. Cruising through his portfolio we saw no wedding pictures, no pictures of landscapes, no baby and graduation pictures, and no close up of bugs. Instead what we saw was a photographer who seems committed to specialize in Alt models shoots and a lot of ink, and to say he does it well is an understatement.”

Nilakantha was also just recently featured in “IMAGINARIUM magazine n°6,” with a small spread and interview on pages 44-55, which is a pretty big deal.

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of Black Leather Jackets out of Oakland, California with “The Vainest Knife.”

Rockabilly Girls, Pin Up Girls, of Hellbomb Photography  (3)by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by Brandy Wood Wilson of Hellbomb Photography

Comin’ at ya from Saltillo, Mississippi where Elvis’ mother lived nearby and where Kathryn Kelly, wife of Machine Gun Kelly was born and raised, is photographer Brandy Wood Wilson of Hellbomb Photography.

She’s s keeping it real, keeping down to earth, and keeping it southern fried hot. With Southern hotties such as Mindy Anderson, Ariana Flowers, and Tenille Hubbard, how could you go wrong.

I am sure if you paid them a visit you would get some great southern hospitality along with a great photo shoot to boot.

So enjoy today’s gallery to the kick ass rockabilly and  garage influenced sound of Loonapark, out of St. Petersburg, Russia with “Poor Man’s Son.”

Legs Gallery 158 – The Robert Lazzaro Edition

Legs, Stokings, and Nylons by Robert Lazarro (5)by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photography by Roberto Lazzaro

Photographer Roberto Lazzaro of Milan, Italy goes on to say;

Amateurs worry about equipment, Professionals worry about money, Masters worry about light,
I just make pictures…

And he certainly does. Robert’s photos may be subtle but the feeling they give is that of a lazy morning with the natural light of the sun creeping through the blinds to ever so genly caress the skin of his subjects with their rays.

Robert does not say much about himself in his bios but his photos clearly do the talking. Enjoy today’s gallery to SECRET ABILITIES out of Salt Lake City, Utah with “Blame Game.”

This Cinnamon Girl Has Heart Full Of Poetry And A Soul Full Of Prose

Inked Girl, Alternative Model, Pin Up Girl Leanna Banana by Dasterdlly Dave (1)by Sad man’s Tongue, Photos by Dastardly Dave Photography, Model Leanna Banana

Usually when we write a bit about someone we go to their bio or about page. More often than not individuals write almost nothing about themselves. But when we started this feature on Leanna Banana we were stunned.

What Leanna wrote was such poetry that anything we could possibly write about her would pale in comparison to her words and could never touch the page we write on now as she just touched our soul.

We can tell you that while you think her photos tell the story of this spirited Alternative model they do not. Perhaps they touch upon her in the entire sum of 10% but there is clearly far more than just the beauty you see here.

We have always been a sucker for red hair and her prose poem “Red” truly speaks of a color in all its nuances,

it is the reflection of the setting sun in her eyes.  it is the hue of the tears that she cries deep into her pillow when she believes that everyone else is asleep.  it is the echo of your heartbeat when you hold her against you.  it is the taste of her kiss.  it is the way that she shushes you with her fingertip against your lips, lingering like an endless sentence though nothing is spoken.  it is the remnant of lust that you leave all over her body in the throes of passion.  it is the sound of her orgasm.  it is the dying ember of your last cigarette.  it is the scent of her perfume on your sheets after you wake alone in an empty bed.  it is the wound that the razor leaves on porcelain skin.  it is the shade of the weeping flowers abandoned in the hallway.  it is the burning ache of your broken heart.  it is the color of love. – Leanna Banana

This Inked wonder from Manchester, New Hampshire has a wonderful website and blog called “All Ghosts Are Women,” wich is an artists palate of photos, prose, and poetry and this is a must for you to check  out.

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of Sam Spades out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with their song “Wolf.”

Shakin’ With Pin Up Girl Heather Valentine

Pin Up Girl Heather Valentine by Doll House Photography (4)by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by DollHouse Photography, Model Heather Valentine

This aspiring Pin Up model from the South West UK makes you wish Valentine’s Day was everyday. After doing a pin up shoot she started to imagine herself as a full time model and dreamt of being a pin up girl.

Well dreams do come true and with the magic of Birmingham, England based DollHouse Photography, who works with some of the biggest names in the Pin Up world, she will be high in the clouds as this photo set shows.

Heather even has a little Youtube page that is a hit with her fans. There’s a nice little video of her making cupcakes there.

This beautiful set by DollHouse Photography combines some classic pin up poses with a few paying tribute to the llegendary  Gil Elvgren.

Enjoy today’s Gallery to Blaire Alise & The Bombshells out of Detroit, Michigan with “Shakin.”

Kicking Off The Christmas Season With Little Skull Photography’s Christmas Pin Ups

Christmas Pin Up Girl Faith by Little Skull Photography (2)by Sad man’s Tongue, Photos by Joslyn Devaney of  Little Skull Photography, Models Jessica Akara, and Faith

Photographer Joslyn Devaney of  Little Skull Photography caught our eye a year ago, but December passed by and we were never able to feature her Christmas Pin Up photography.

Of course we thought we would heat things up in January but decided against it. We wanted to show her wonderful work so bad that we were quite angry with ourselves for missing the opportunity in December of 2013. We even thought a Christmas in July feature would be fine, but again opted not to do it.

Like all the rest of the good little boys and girls out there we waited a year, quite impatiently, so that we could feature her work at the proper time, and what better time than today the first of December.

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of JD McPherson out of Tulsa, Oklahoma with “Twinkle (Little Christmas Lights).”

The Pin Up Style Of Marie Grantham Photography

Genevieve Davis by Marie Grantham Photography (1)by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by Marie Grantham of Marie Grantham Photography, Models Lisa Luxe, Kiera Brady, and Genevieve Davis

When we came across Marie Grantham of Marie Grantham Photography we were not drawn to any of her pin up shots. On the contrary, we did not see any of those at first. What we did see were some of the most adorable photos of babies. So adorable we contemplated starting a whole other blog, but in the end those were not the babes that interested us.

We did eventually find what we were looking for, but we highly recommend checking out her sites to see those incredible, adorable, and feel good baby photos.

Marie is an Argentine born, raised in California, and now living in Las Vegas mother of one and photographer extraordinaire. Now that was a mouthful. The set that caught our eye was a lovely cheesecake and pin up shoot that for us brought some old post cards back to life.

A touch of vintage, a dash of retro cheesecake, and a dab of several hotties had us wanting to take a nostalgic trip along Route 66 and side tripping to Marie’s neck of the woods, or tumbleweed we should day.

Thankfully what happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas so please enjoy her wonderful Pin Up work to the sounds of the The Dyna Jets, out of Cape Town, South Africa with “Oooee Baby.”

Pin Up Girl Ja'Nelle Gunn by Powder Puff Vixen Pinup Photography (1)by Sad man’s Tongue, Model Ja’Nelle Gunn, Photography by Powder Puff Vixen Pinup Photography

Ja’Nelle Gunn is an Italian-Canadian Pin Up Girl out of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada has us feeling a bit hot for nostalgia. Her retro photo shoot with Powder Puff Vixen Pinup Photography is quite the sexy set, and with guns like hers we’re not going to worry about protection.

Ja’Nelle has had a busy year having been featured in Delicious Dolls Magazine, Spicy Issue #3, January 2014, Tease & Cake Magazine (UK), Issue #7, March 2014, Delicious Dolls Magazine, Sheer Special Edition, April 2014, Garters and Grills Magazine, and Hot Dollz and Hot Rodz, 2014 Calendar.

This internationally published pin up girl and hottie may do cheesecake photography proud, but she can be quite modern and sultry as well. We look forward to seeing what she does next.

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of ScotDrakula out of Melbourne, Australia with “O’Clock.”
