11 Tattoos of Eleven from 'Stranger Things'

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

Eleven made such a telekinetic impression on fans that a bunch of them have gotten portraits of her.

Stranger Things — with its charismatic cast, gripping plot, and insane visuals —was one of the best TV series of 2016. There are a number of reasons why it is such an outstanding show, but one character in particular stole the hearts of fans everywhere — Eleven, the scarcely spoken and psychokinetic preteen heroine. She may have (spoiler alert) vanished when she destroyed the Demogorgon at the end of the first season of the show, but she lives on in the world of tattoos.

For those of you who haven't seen the show yet, Eleven is an incredibly compelling character. She has an tragic backstory, having been subject to inhumane experiments by the sinister Hawkins National Laboratory, which sought to weaponize her ability to enter into "The Upside Down," an alternate dimension where supernatural creatures lurk. After she escapes, she befriends the other main characters, and we get to see her come out of her shell, learning about her immense psychic powers and other quirks, like her insatiable affinity for Eggo waffles. 

Eleven, with her sometimes sweet and other times sad or intense demeanor, is a great subject for a tattoo. Her short hair and mismatched outfit give her an unusual and striking appearance. The actress who plays her — Millie Bobby Brown — has incredibly emotive and kind eyes, but fans tend to get portraits of Eleven looking her angriest, bending the laws of physics around her with her mind as blood trickles out of her nose.

To see more celebrity portraiture, make your way to all of these tattooists' Instagrams. If you're a diehard fan of Stranger Things, consider getting a depiction of Eleven or one of the other characters. We suggest Barb. After a grisly death like that, she deserves a little more recognition.
