Horror tattoos are a great way for a person to show their love and appreciation for a genre that has been so successful in both literature and in films. These tattoos represent the stories that have scared us to our very cores and come complete with mythical creatures such as vampires, werewolves, dopplegangers and zombies.
Many horror tattoos like to show a character or a particular scene from a book or horror movie. Many of these feature classic representations of movie characters such as Frankenstein’s monster or the bride of Dracula.
Other horror tattoos feature more generic characters such as zombies, aliens and insect hordes.
Just about any image that shows the macabre and the terrifying can be transformed into a horror tattoo. All it takes is a little imagination on the part of the designer. If it frightens you or repulses you, then it is probably a prime candidate for your tattoo. And if the design is inked by a true artist, then it can also become a real work of art. Just be sure that what you have inked is something that you can live with for a long time to come. Just like any other form of body art, horror tattoos are permanent so be sure you love the design.
