There are many reasons to get Sleepy Hollow tattoos. You can first be a fan of Tim Burton and his movie, including Johnny Depp.
You can also be addicted to the TV serie, with the handsome Tom Mison, or a buff of spooky legends, directly getting inspiration from the historical story. But, simply, you could just love tales associated with Halloween. The legend of Sleepy Hollow was developped by American writer Washington Irving. He tells the story of a young man, Ichabod Crane, wishing to marry a rich heiress, Katrina Van Tassel. Going to her parents' house for his proposal, the lover encountered a ghost, a beheaded horse rider, who was a former Hessian soldier of the American Revolutionary War. Ichabod disappeared, and the only thing left of him was a pumpkin. The rider became a popular character of horror culture, used in fiction and video games, and indeed, in tattoo art. Sleepy Hollow ink focus on the terrible rider, with a pumpkin, cemetery background and other scary details. From traditional to badass, Halloween lovers want their Sleepy Hollow tattoos to look cool... And you?
