Bettie Page and Dirk Vermin

FullSizeRender555                                                                          I’ve loved Bettie Page since I was little. She is my icon and always thought she was so effortlessly beautiful no matter what she looked like. I collected her postcards, books, collectibles, and even have some of her rare vintage black and white photo proofs that weren’t ever for sale when she modeled. I even dressed up like her for Halloween one year in high school.

When I saw this, I had to immediately enter the contest. I knew Dirk from his old t.v show and started talking and chatting with him online not too long ago and he’s a very cool and nice guy. I was definitely determined to be one of the comic contest winners.

My Bettie Page Fetish Comix just came in the mail a few days ago and I absolutely love them! Besides the amazing art work, I love how Dirk combined Bettie with some of my favorite actors, actresses, and musicians such as Tura Satana, Iggy Pop,  Julie Newmar, Groucho Marx, Bela Legosi, and much more. I thought it was a brilliant concept.

The story lines are brilliant and all work well together. Also as an artist myself, I appreciate Dirk’s creativity and vision.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO DIRK VERMIN FOR SENDING ME THESE BOOKS. I’VE BEEN WANTING A BETTIE PAGE TATTOO SINCE I WAS YOUNG BUT NEVER GOT A CHANCE. THESE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE MAKING ME MORE DETERMINED TO GET A BEAUTIFUL BETTIE PIECE NOW AND WOULD LOVE DIRK TO DO ONE FOR ME AT HIS PLACE OF BUSINESS, THE PUSSYKAT TATTOO PARLOR SHOP IN LAS VEGAS!

THANK YOU AGAIN DIRK!!!!
