16 Haunting Cthulhu Tattoos

Readers of fantasy writer H.P. Lovecraft and role games players will perfectly understand these Cthulhu tattoos.
This alien god, created by the American author, is one of his most popular characters. Banned by other ancient gods, Cthulhu is supposed to sleep in an unknown Pacific island, waiting for his return and domination over the world. Inspired by the mythological figure of the Kraken, this octopus head monster is the subject of a fictional cult, and his minions are working to awake him with horrific ceremonies. Cthulhu tattoos are indeed inspired of fan art, based on the short stories of Lovecraft. Now the creature is an icon of metal music, video games and pop culture, with kawaii versions and plushies. But if you prefer the scary, badass version, we have your back with these epic Cthulhu tattoos...
