The local radio station printed a pinup calendar. Christina is July. Pictures were taken in December at 30 degrees. I can't post them because of copyright but if you go to wrat.com and search you will find.
Don't understand the necessity for tattoos. Spent 25 years in the navy, circumnavigated the globe several times and still do not have a tattoo.
Ironically my oldest son looks like a walking advertisement for a tattoo parlor.
John - I agree. However, maybe we're not really looking at it quite right. Maybe "necessity" isn't quite the right word. If you stop and think about it, there's really no "necessity" for most jewelry either! But for those that absolutely must "decorate" themselves with ear rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc, etc,.... that makes no sense either, when you consider, that such jewelry has to be deliberately put on and taken off, must be stored someplace, is susceptible to loss and/or theft, probably should be insured, is hazardous to wear around power tools and machinery, also can (and does) tend to scratch fine finishes on such things as automobiles, furniture, firearms, etc. But none of that nonsense with tattoos,......
I don't know John, if you look at it that way, I never heard of anybody loosing, having stolen, or having to add an insurance rider to their homeowners policy for a tattoo,........???
Again, if you absolutely must "decorate" you body, maybe tattoos do make a little sense, huh? But then again, who really "NEEDS" either tattoos or jewelry, right? Let's face it, for me to decorate MY body,.....that'd be like hanging Christmas tree ornaments on an elephant or a bus, right? Oh,....wait a minute,.....they actually do that in India don't they! Ahhh,....forget it,.....harold
A few years later it's a lot easier to take out the nose pierce (ugh) than it is to get rid of a tattoo. Personally, I'm good with a wedding ring and nothing else but your body, your choice.
I wonder why young women have that tattoo across their lower back. The modern name for that tattoo is "tramp Stamp". With the low belt lines and crop tops when they bend there is that stamp. Not pretty not attractive, but never the less there they are.
I'm thinking in years to come the tramp stamp, will slide down with gravity, who knows, maybe around their ankles? Then we won't have to look at them.
Yeah Walt,......I have a feeling that someday, there are going to be quite a few "grandmas" that will find it somewhat difficult to explain those "guns & roses" and such in the small of her back to a grand daughter, huh?
Oops! We were both typing at the same time "BCG", and, both thinking pretty much alike!
Jewelry and decorations are easily removed. Tattoos are, for most, permanent. Big difference.
I too was in the US Navy and managed to get old with no visible tattoos, although I do have 3. My tattoos are 3 little dots, one on each hip and one on my lower abdomen. They were used to aim radiation treatments, which in my opinion is the only sensible use of tattoos.
Today's popularity of tattoos and body piercings is nothing more than a mass hysteria aimed at self mutilation. I do not understand it at all.
I don't know who she is or how she is related to the Model T, however she is pretty except for the tatoos. At least from what we can see in the picture, they are not extensive and can be easily covered.
I don't understand why people will go to a lot of pain and expense to remove natural blemishes from their skin and others will purposely have tatoos put on, which in my eyes are blemishes.
When I was younger, people would cut their hair certain ways, or die the hair, maybe braid or set the hair in different styles. They would wear certain clothes. When the styles change, people don't want to look like their parents. Older people want to look younger and lose weight, dye hair, have botox or cosmetic surgery to look younger. Those people with the tatoos will have to go through pain and suffering to have them removed, sometimes leaving scars. They will be sorry later for what they did today.
Well I would say alot but I will just say this. I do not like tattoos. But at the same time, most women don't like a big belly on a man either. So if she could stand my belly,then I could learn to live with the tattoos. Unless they were her ex husbands name!.
If I paid shipping, could you get me a calendar and mail it to me?I can't seem to save the pics to my computer to print although they would give me a calendar? I think it would go well with her picture beside the shop stove!.
Yeah, if I can find one local, I'll get it and let you know.
Now based on personal observations at several WalMart Supercenters I have determined that tattoos lead to MASSIVE weight gain....
William, I love it when Christina makes an appearance on the Forum - even if it's through a link to another site! Thanks for the update and congratulations to her!
Norman, Christina became a cult favorite with many MTFCA members years ago when someone posted a picture of her at a car show, in a bikini, cranking a Model T. See picture below.
For those interested, "Christina" (Skorochod) is a professional model living in New Jersey. You can find all the modeling pictures you want of her by searching the following: "Christina Skorochod", "Christina Skorochod, Facebook", "Christina Noel" and "UR Addiction". She also posed for a calendar in 2008 for a trucker's website. She posed with "Brian's Peterbilt 389". I believe you can find the website and the pictures with a little searching effort.
I am the one who took the picture, for what it's worth
I've seen the picture of her cranking the T but didn't know she was the same one in the calendar.
Worth plenty William..lol...she can grab my crank handle any day!
Norman. I agree. To me, she is much prettier in the face in the above picture than she is in the pictures online or on the calender. I only knew it was her from the tattoo on her left shoulder.
I wish beautiful women would resist the temptation to get tattoos. They only retract from the natural beauty they were born with. Jim Patrick
PS. Like John, I spent 4 1/2 years in the Marines from '72-'77 and never got a tattoo, when the trend was to do so. It might be because I didn't drink and since I had a car, was always appointed the designated driver to make sure my buddies made it safely back to the barracks when we went out on the town. I'm glad I didn't get a tattoo. Might look different now that I am 62. LOL!
Tattoos are seen by psychologists as a sign of insecurity. Employers see that to and unless you are looking for a job a a Harley Davidson dealership, a radio station or a tattoo parlor, employers will avoid hiring people they see as insecure. Sure that is discrimination but it is a fact f life. I remember seeing a guy working as a waiter at a restaurant with colored hair, tats and piercings everywhere and the piercings through his cheeks and lower lip were a problem because he kept drooling through the holes. It was hilarious when they asked him to blow up balloons for a birthday party and he could not do it without making a real mess.
Piercings and tattoos, breast augmentations, I have never understood. Especially the 1's that interfere with simple eating and drinking.
I would guess in limited amounts a tattoo would be sensible if you had a scar on your arm or face and could hide it with something simple.
I don't want anything on me that I can't get off with lacquer thinner,
I'll make an exception for this dad.
In March 2015, Gabriel was diagnosed with a form of cancer called anaplastic astrocytoma, a rare malignant brain tumor. “He’s been doing good and he’s been off treatment about nine months now,” Marshall said.
However, Marshall said Gabriel admitted he felt like a “monster” because of a large scar he has as a result of his surgery. “This broke my heart,” Marshall said. The doting father’s solution was to get a tattoo that resembled his son’s scar. “I told him if people wanted to stare, they could stare at both of us,” he said.
Ran across a gal I'd not seen in years, had a tattoo of a hummingbird between her shoulder blades, now old and fat like me and the tattoo looks like a turkey buzzard. KGB
As Larry The Cable Guy would say... "Now that's funny right there.... I don't care who ya are!"
It appears that Christina has more 'tats" now, and I think they detract from her natural beauty. I think she looks much more "attractive" in the T photos than in the calendar shots.
But that's just IMHO, and What Do I Know?
A young friend of mine got a tatto of a Bull, and I don't have the heart to tell him that it makes him look like he spent time in prison (he hasn't).
Another exception is for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and have suffered through the trauma of a complete mastectomy resulting in the surgical removal of both breasts. Only a few years ago, this was considered an end to the woman feeling desired by men, but these days, thanks to advances in tattoos and plastic surgical techniques, women who have suffered this fate can get new breast implants with tattoo'd 3D areolas that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.

I wear my "Purple Heart" on my left shoulder.
I wear my "Purple Heart" on my left shoulder and am proud of it and my "T"
I don't put bumper stickers on my vehicles or political signs in my yard and nothing on my body.
Some guy with a needle injecting something into my skin...HELL NO. I know 3 guys who got ink and also got HEPATITIS. Sure the "artist" uses a clean needle and single use ink cartage, risk your life on that. Look at them, have they been to medical school and are doctors or do they work at the carnival? Share a needle in some rental unit like a drug addict and roll the dice for what you might get...HIV / AIDS is possible.
All my scars have a story and I did not do them on purpose. Nobody will stick a needle in me with ink on it to mark me, ask a Jewish person about that.
As a former Marine, I don't want any of my fellow military brothers to think I am judging you if you got a tattoo. I had a lot of friends get tattoos while on liberty, mostly out of pride for the branch of service they were in or commemorating an accomplishment, such as Greg with his purple heart (thank you for your service).
I really couldn't care less about men getting tattoos or unattractive women for that matter. My criticisms were directed toward beautiful women who denigrate their beautiful bodies with tattoos. It could be the most beautiful tattoo in the world, done by the best artist in the world and I would still say, it does not belong on a beautiful woman.
Mack, I went to several locations for a calendar today. Sorry, the supply is dry.
I did speak to Christina today and she has one left, but I'm not going to beg her for it. If she wants to give it to me that's fine, but I suspect that is one she might be saving for her
Well I appreciate your trying sir!
Of course, lot of tats is not attractive. For anyone. But people make tattoos not only to draw attention or feel safe, but for a memory of something good. My sister-in-law for example, has "13" on her forearm. She believes it's her lucky number. There's nothing bad about it, even my Mom thinks so. The tattoo looks pretty and tenderly.
Today there're huuuge amount of tats for girls. They look awesome.
