10 Haunting Yurei Tattoos

Yurei tattoos are inspired by the eerie spirits of Japanese folklore and mythology, will you be brave enough to get a Yurei tattoo?!?
Yurei are the Japanese equivalent of what in the western world are called ghosts. Figures in classic Japanese beliefs and folklore Yurei are spirits kept on earth, away from a peaceful afterlife. Yurei are created when a person dies suddenly, usually by murder or suicide, and is buried without the proper rituals being carried out or with the person dying with unresolved issues fueled by emotions such as 'revenge, love, jealousy, hatred or sorrow'. The Yurei then exists on earth until the proper rituals have been carried out or the conflict which keeps it from rest is resolved.
