25 Deliciously Bloody Tattoos (Part 1)

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

As a horror fan and an occasional gore fan at that, tattoos that involve either excite me.

If it won't freak my mum out too much, I'd probably get some psycho tattoo myself. Anyway, these tattoos aren't all necessarily related to everything gore and horror and whatnot. Sometimes, blood is really just blood.

Can't have blood tattoos without the vampire theme now, can we?

I almost didn't notice that this piece is located on the ‘tramp stamp’ spot. Wouldn't even call it that! Good lower back tattoos are very rare.
