NYC Skateboard company 5boro has collaborated with Smith Street Tattoo Parlor to produce a set of custom skate decks entitled the 'Pin Up Series.' These decks feature artwork by some of Smith Street Tattoo's most talented tattoo artists including Bert Krak, Steve Boltz, Eli Quinters and Daniel Santoro.

The designs feature pin-up artwork of models, representing NYC's 5 boroughs: Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island (and 'Join or Die'). Each of the models are wearing bikini swimwear (in a variety of funky fresh colors) to represent Hurricane Sandy and the damage that it caused at Rockaway Beach Skatepark. Subsequently, a portion of the proceeds are being donated to rebuilding the park.
