MI Tattoo of the Week: Moto Girl Pin Up from Blue Monkey Tattoo

Elissa with her 2003 Suzuki GSXR-600

Elissa is no stranger to tattoos. She has quite a few, including an amazing ‘Rosie the Riveter’ rendition of a female marine mechanic which Elissa herself used to be.

Elissa’s rib tattoo, which is a representation of herself in the US Marine Corps.

She also has a hummingbird on her shoulder that represents her Dad and flowers on her back that represent her immediate family.

John Soto from Blue Monkey Tattoo works on Elissa Everett’s Moto Girl Pin Up, meticulously filling in the shading and paying attention to every detail.

So when I mentioned we were having a tattoo party at Blue Monkey Tattoo in Rialto, CA, she was down for some ink time. John Soto was the tattoo artist who sketched her pin up and positioned the pin up kneeling over a helmet, which is actually based on the Bell Star helmet.

Elissa has been riding for a couple of years now and has a 2003 Suzuki GSXR600 with a clean, all white paint job. She occasionally rides in the canyons and does track days. Formerly a marine, Elissa is using her GI Bill to become a nurse.
