20 Striking Vampire Tattoos

21inkedd in Tattoo Ideas

Vampires exist in nightmares, undead mythical beings that exist to feed on the life of living creatures, usually by drinking their blood.

The modern view of vampires has largely been shaped by the story of Dracula written by Bram Stoker and the Hollywood productions that followed. Pale skin, sharp fangs, a true creature of the night, these are the images that come to mind when you think of a vampire...or you think of Robert Pattinson in Twilight. Nevertheless vampires still strike fear into the hearts of the old and young alike, however with fear comes intrigue and interest. Put simply vampires are incredibly fascinating beings, naturally then they make great tattoos!

Vampire tattoos can be some of the most striking and impressive portraits around, or even a bold and colourful traditional piece! What ever form they take the end result is the same- an awesome tattoo! The fangs, blood or flawless complexion, each element of a vampire makes for a great tattoo subject and will never fail to catch the eye or strike fear into the hearts of others!
