20 Eerie Coffin Tattoos

21inkedd in Tattoo Ideas

What is more potent as a symbol of death than a coffin.

For centuries rich and poor men alike have been buried in coffins, some simple, others rather ornate but the foundations very much the same, a box containing a dead body. Admittedly the subject of coffins is rather a grim one!! They don't exactly scream joy and happiness, but as we all know people love dark and eerie tattoos and to this end coffins make a good choice of ink!

Coffin tattoos can be as bright and bold or realistic and subtle as you like, but either way they make an oddly nice tattoo. Different to other death themed tattoos coffins touch upon the reality of death a little more than say a grim reaper tattoo would! Whether you're a lover of dark and creepy tattoos, or bold little designs with a hint of macabre mystery coffin tattoos could be the tattoo for you...If you're still not sold on them here are 20 coffin tattoos to change your mind, yeah they may be a little creepy but they're pretty cool as well!!
