it can be cute or can be bad. Kinda like HDR.

Fast, I think Hihosteverino put it up.

There was a tutorial here in G&N on how to do this or a way one person did it. Can someone point me to it?

I believe this is the one you are looking for: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=985194

what's "overdone" to us phtoographers who look at many images everyday may still be very fresh to your models, clients, etc. (except caution tape, that's overdone period :)]

I like the dot and the look of that era.

My thoughts exactly. Just because many of photographers spend hours perusing sites and seeing other photographers work doesn't mean it is like that for Joe/Jane Public.

I personally like the DOT and the one time I did it I got a ton of compliments so go figure.

The Dot! Yes, when I first started doing Pinup I used it in almost every image. But I haven't used it in a loooong time. I haven't stopped using it, but I really use it sparingly now. Depends on the image and what I'm going for. But to answer the question, yes, I believe it is overdone.

It also depends on what your client wants.

Absolutely! But I gotta' tell ya', I find all this selective desaturation and the woefully self-serving name "Cross Processing" for incompetent white balance and crapped color treatment to be consistently awful. The pin-up circle isn't even in the same universe as these total blunders! Because a couple of fashion magazines' idiot art directors decide to try something doesn't make even the least bit appealing.

But Trent hit the nail on the head. Some of those circles are truly awful but most are good to excellent and are simply integral to the genre. Note: I have never done any of the above techniques ... I'm simply not competent.

There's good dot and bad dot. What bugs me about it - Simply putting a dot behind the model doesn't make it a 'pin-up'

The Pin-up genre encompasses apparel, make-up, hair style, posing etc.

when it's done sparingly, and done well, then it's good.
