40 Wicked Addams Family Tattoos

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

If you're anything like me, you probably grew up watching The Addams Family and wishing you were a part of that enchanting herd of theirs.

For a kid who wasn't very big into Sabrina the Teenage Witch or Lizzie Mguire and such. Wednesday Addams was my paragon. There wasn't a dull moment with the Addams, with Morticia's morbid fascinations and alluring appeal to the antics of Pugsley and Wednesday, trying to kill off each other. It's a total nostalgia fest in here. And I guess the kids who were thrilled by The Addams Family ended up growing up weird and antisocial, wouldn't have it any other way though!

Whether it's the shows, the movies or the musical, there really is more to love with these quirky characters of an even crazier bloodline. We've got a great fan base alright, just by looking at these tattoos! But of course, we all have Charles Addams to thank for.

Let's show some mad love to this most delightfully macabre family to grace the small screens and the silver screen!

Trivia: To make Anjelica Huston's eyes look slanted like the original Morticia, the make-up artists had to attach strings with spirit gum to the outside corners of her eyes and anchor the strings on her head. Ouch!

The Addams Family credo: "Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc." (We gladly feast on those who would subdue us.) Wicked.
