Pinterest prohibits its members from posting copyrighted material without the owner's permission. However, a ridiculous amount of Pinterest's images are being pinned by those who did not create the content. ... Images on the platform are being exploited for commercial gain, and the personal work of artists is being stolen.

Except in unusual cases, Pinterest is not the copyright holder in the images that users pin on the site. Where necessary, you should get permission to use an image from its copyright owner.
