Stephen King. Do I need to introduce the king of horror literature much more?
I am one of his numerous readers and perhaps are you too. And when talking of fans, you are inevitably leaded to talk about their tattoos... Yes, readers love ink too, and indeed Stephen King inspired tattoos are sometimes as scary as his novels, fed by his incredible imagination and skill for fear and reading pleasure. Fantasy literature is always a great fount of inspiration for tattoos (as you can see with these H.P. Lovecraft tattoos here). King's tribute tattoo designs are of course that dreadful because of his abundant movies adaptations and also graphic novels, tv shows and related art (not always as good as the books but fine material for tattoos).
The spookier tattoos are mostly references to famous horror flicks of The Shining, Pet Sematary and It, with its freaky Pennywise, the nightmare of all kids (and adults too!). But there are also beautiful tattoos inspired by one of King's most popular books serie, the Dark Tower. I have to admit I am not a fan of the serie, but the dedication of the fans is impressive. I'm just a bit disappointed that I couldn't find any Needful Things and Misery good tattoos (my favorite books) and few Green Miles ones. And you, what is your favorite Stephen King book (hard to pick just one, right??) and would you get some ink related to the master of fantasy?
Be brave! Take a quick look to these 40 fantastic Stephen King inspired tattoos... before it is too dark....
