You have to have the right stats and look but yeah sure why not?  Amelia Nightmare is one of the best pin up/glamour/alternative models out there and she's asian.

DEFINITELY!

There's no race that CAN'T do pinup~! If you want to do it, go for it. If you haven't seen it, what's to stop you from doing it? You can be the first smile

But I have seen it, so never fear.

NOOOO!!!  Gross.

Can an Asian guy play Romeo?  NOOOOO, it is disgusting   
Can a white dude play Bruce Lee in the movie?  Nooooo
Can an Asian play the Santa Cross?  No, it will give young children nightmares
Can David Carradine play the leading role in the Kung Fu series?  No, it is an ultimate insult to the Chinese.
Can an Asian born be the president of United States?  N0...

Sure. Why not?

That said, pinup is largely about cultural traditions so doing it with Asian looks or features turns it into something different, maybe a different kind of comment on the culture. Sort of like a Nordic model doing anime or manga looks - it stretches the genre. Sometimes in a good way, sometimes not.

At 17 yrs old, you may find some photographers willing to shoot pinup with you.

Many will not.

I think she has already gotten the correct answer which is:  "Yes, Asians can do pin-up."  Why don't we use this thread to show her some good examples so she can get some ideas of her own?  For those of you that posted examples, thank you!
