Halloween Tattoos

Updated on July 8, 2016

Tattoo for Your Favorite Holiday: Halloween

You may already have a tattoo, maybe several. Have you thought about getting a tattoo celebrating your favorite holiday of the year? That's right. You know you want a Halloween Tattoo.

There are several ways you can go about this. The first is to be direct and to get something that says Halloween. Make it obvious Like this one by ChibiSweetie. You want people to know you love the Dark Holiday. You could also get something that just says you like whatever the image is. Like bats. Have a group of bats flying up your leg or shoulder. They look great and could just mean you like bats.

Get a tattoo that commemorates your favorite movie, maybe a Tim Burton Classic. There are a lot of choices. You just have to make up your mind.

A Scary Pumpkin on My Shoulder - The shoulder is a great place for a Jack-O-Lantern

This is a great evil looking pumpkin tattooed on the entire canvas of the shoulder. It is apparently there to memorialize someone. There is a date that I can only surmise as being a date of death. What better way to ink a tattoo than to have a Evil pumpkin watching over your grave. I guess it could also be a birthday. The date was 1971. That was 40 something years ago. Perfect.

I love the face on this pumpkin. He has an evil grin that makes me feel like he is up to something. I also like the fact the pumpkin is orange. I think the color might distract from the facial features.

Most people just want their Halloween tattoos to be temporary. They want to be able to enjoy the holiday with skin art that can be removed when the fun is over. This is especially true if the tattoos are on the face. Who wants to have tattoos of spiderwebs or bats on their face forever. That might be something a person would regret later on in life.

Then there are those people who want to commemorate their favorite holiday onto their skin. Some people have a favorite holiday movie, like "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

Jack Skellington - Is a Great Cult Classic Tattoo

Tim Burton's mind is dark, yet wonderful. When he created "The Nightmare Before Christmas" I don't think he realized that he was creating a cult classic. He was creating something that would live on making a life of it's own, and in this case, becoming a part of someone else's life in such a way that it would go to the grave with them.

This is a beautiful tattoo. The artwork is fantastic. The shading is perfect, especially on the ghost dog. I bet the pain of this one was up there on the ouchy index. She had the work done right on her ribs. There are a lot of nerves right there.

How Often Does He Get Smacked - Just seeing this one in the mirror would freak me out

Is This Spider Real?

I am pretty sure this one is just a temporary tattoo. It looks real. They have the shadows down and everything. It looks just like a Black Widow. I think this person would get smacked often when people see this tattoo. It is in a spot that does not scream tattoo. It is right above the shirt collar. It gives me the heeby jeebies just looking at it.

Bats on the Feet - A Perfectly Organic Tattoo

I Love the way this tattoo works. In fact all the bat tattoos I have found all work the same. They have a flow about them that are organic. They can be placed just about anywhere and still look awesome. I am not sure what bats say about a person in general though. When I see bats like this, I think the person must be Gothic, dark, maybe even a little bit evil.
