Come to the dark side, we've got gloriously beautiful, sinister tattoos here!
If trads or watercolour just ain't doing it for you then we're giving your eyes a little feast—nothing short of blackwork, dark elements, and occult-inspired tattoos. This isn't exactly a style, rather a theme. I found a few artists who do mainly “occult”-themed or sinister-looking stuff like Anrijs Straume and blackworker, Robert Borbas. Kinda like what Paul Acker did with horror colour realism tattoos.
These tattoos are basically just dark stuff, featuring esoteric elements that are often associated with evil and all that. Nonetheless, it's still an interesting theme to play with in tattoos, to deviate from the usual, cheery and generic “bad ass”themes in most tattoos.
All hail the vampire queen.
One of the most devilishly suave serial killers on TV.
I think we can all agree that clowns and puppets are already pretty sinister as they are.
The only doctor you'd like to chill with.
The prince of darkness himself, goth rocker Marilyn Manson.
Glorious in neo traditional style.
Love blackwork and this particular theme on tattoos? Then you have to meet Robert Borbas.
And since the holidays are just around the corner, ho-ho-ho-ho?
