Evil Pumpkin Tattoos
Tattoos of Evil Pumpkins
For those who love a good horror picture and scare, there's nothing much better than an evil pumpkin or Jack-O-Lantern, whether fixed on the head of an evil creature, or possibly on a scarecrow, or other creative uses to create that tense atmosphere conducive to a film or TV show that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
So it's no surprise that fans of the horror genre, Halloween, or evil-looking pumpkins decide to have them inked on their skin in a permanent fashion.
While there are at times some secondary characters and scenarios included with evil pumpkin tattoos, overall the pumpkin is definitely the star of this art show, and everything in the tattoo design centers around the pumpkin and its evil look.
Sometimes the pumpkin tattoo is obviously related to the Halloween season, and other times seems to stand as its own as just evil, no matter what time of the year it is.
Either way, the evil pumpkin tattoos are for the purpose of offering a disturbing image, although the caricatures of an evil pumpkin can be very funny as well.
Evil Pumpkin Faces
Most, but not all of the faces of the evil pumpkins bear a resemblance to the traditional carving of a pumpkin face on Halloween, although with a definite leaning towards a sinister look in the case of the evil Jack-O-Lantern ink.
As for the pumpkin tattoo designs, they are about half and half as far as color or dark in goes. You have the orange color of actual pumpkins in the cases of pumpkins being tattooed in color, and the rest are the dark greys and blacks. As in all my tattoo designs, I prefer the latter.
Let's look at some of the way artists and those wanting evil pumpkin tattoos imagined and designed them.
- Cemetery, Graveyard Tattoos
Out of curiosity I did some research to see if there was any interest in having a graveyard or cemetery tattooed on a person, and interestingly, there was. In my mind, when the thought of a graveyard comes up, it is differentiated from a cemetery...
- Angel of Death Tattoos
When people think of the angel of death, it usually conjures up thoughts of images of the Grim Reaper we're all so familiar with. While that is still true, there are a variety of ways we imagine the moment of death and the role angels may play in...
Evil Pumpkin Tattoo with Bat Wings
Even though this first look at an evil pumpkin tattoo design isn't exactly troubling, it is actually a much better design than the cartoonish look it has at the first look.
For example, the cavernous eyes are done very well, something a lot of tattoo artist fail to do well in this and other similar genres. But I was most impressed with the way the veins in the wings were portrayed.
What was odd to me it was like the tattoo was done half cartoonish and half seriously, creating this interesting result. It is definitely good for a laugh or two.

- Edgar Allen Poe Tattoo Designs
Edgar Allen Poe has become more of a fascinating individual after his death than he was during his lifetime. In fact, Poe was known in his day more as a literary critic than an author, and grew in popularity as an author after his death at the...
- Chucky the Killer Doll Tattoos
It's hard to believe the first Chucky movie, Child's Play, was released in 1988, and has another project in the mix, which will be similar to the original Child's Play, but reportedly much darker. That has been pushed back for legal reasons until...
Evil Pumpkin Tattoo on Arm
This particular pumpkin tattoo was odd to me, specifically in relationship to the odd way the eye was designed on the left. That appears to be a fail, and not something intentionally done.
It does appear to partially have the shape of a bat though, so maybe it was done on purpose, without the expected results.
What's odd to me is there are times I look at it without too much focus, and it looks decent, but then when I zoom in on it, again, it seems distorted. Interesting.
- Skull Wearing Hat Tattoo Designs
Tattoos of skulls wearing hats are awesome, and include a little bit of everything in the way of hats, including cowboy hats, top hats, jester and baseball hats. But it doesn't end there. While wearing a variety of hats, the skulls, for the most...
- Cow Skull Tattoo Designs
One of the more memorial objects in the minds of people envisioning the old west is that of cow skulls scattered among the plains or desert. Many of these were the result of droughts where cattle had trouble finding water, or of tough cattle...
Evil Pumpkin Tattoo with Bats
For the first time in this tattoo gallery we get a little more of the sense of foreboding when looking at a pumpkin design.
Those eyes and dark interior behind the mouth suggest something is not right with this guy. Also those two friends flying around imply he's hanging out with, or attracting, the wrong type of friends.
Speaking of the bats, I really like the way they were designed. They look awesome to me.
- Zombie Tattoo Designs
There is no doubt one of the more popular themes of the entertainment industry over the last several years has been vampires, werewolves and zombies, among a variety of other roles and characters representing a number of bad creatures. Zombie...
- Fire and Flame Tattoos
Tattoos incorporating fire or flame into the design look fantastic, and with the occasional exception, are part of a combination of tattoo themes, rather than a standalone image of fire. But even on those occasions, the tattoo is designed in such...
Pumpkin Tattoo with Bones Sticking Through it
My favorite part of this evil pumpkin tattoo design is probably the eyes. They were well done and capture that ominous look you like when looking at something that is supposed to be scary in some way.
Also interesting was the decision to have blue for where you break the gourd off of the vine.
- Werewolf Tattoos You Can't Ignore
While werewolf tattoos obviously aren't for everyone, if you like fantasy art, it's definitely a compelling theme, even if you aren't the type to have it inked on you. For those that do enjoy horror, werewolves are among the best in my opinion, as...
- Fabulous Fantasy Tattoos
Fantasy, whether reading or art, is among my favorite subjects, and it always lends itself to some outstanding designs, which the tattoos below will testify to. One unique element in fantasy, is overall, most artists like to not just create one...
Evil Pumpkin Tattoo on Shoulder
With this pumpkin tattoo the design goes up to another level, as you can clearly see from the great results. Along with the great, disturbing eyes, you have that furrowed forehead, that seems to be bursting in anger.
The darker colors underneath the pumpkin set it up to be presented very well without interfering with the design. Nice job.
- Disturbing Mask Tattoos
When you begin to think about mask tattoos, you're almost exclusively going to encounter the dark side of life, as very few tattoo designs including masks are represented by the light. There are some exceptions, and I've included a couple of those...
- Dark Jester Tattoos
A Jester, or Court Jester, was largely a product of European culture, and was employed to provide a variety of entertainment, and also in some cases, to provide advise to political leaders, especially the king or queen. Another role was that of...
Evil Pumpkin Shoulder Tattoo
Now here the artist really captures the essence of evil resident in the pumpkin. That furrows in the brow, all across the eyes and nose, look awesome. That dark holes where the eyes, nose and mouth are really look great against the grey and light background.
- Amazing Bat Tattoos
Depending on the part of the world you live in, bats can be considered bad omens or representative of evil, or in other places a sign of good luck, if you believe in it. Either way, bat tattoos are very interesting, and they can be inked on as...
- Rockin' Raven Tattoos
Anyone interested in having an edgy look with their tattoo will meet those expectations when deciding on a raven as their theme of choice. There is no doubt Ravens are considered a symbol of a dark force in the world, and whether alone or in a...
Evil Pumpkin Tattoo Head on Scarecrow
Now how amazing is this evil pumpkin tattoo? The dark colors are extraordinary, and are blended just right with the light colors to highlight the pumpkin and the scarecrow body in just the right places.
The shadow and detail are amazing. A lot of work had to go into this design, and it shows. This is really an attention grabber.
