Hannibal Lecter's Favorite Insect: Death Moth Tattoos

Everyone loves Death Moth Tattoos, including us...so we pulled some together for your to thoroughly enjoy.

Why is it that death moth tattoos resonate so deeply with everyone? For this collection of pieces we contemplated just that. No matter the style, aesthetic or overall design...whether it's just a detail, or the entire tattoo...we see death moth tattoos in many artists portfolios and we're definitely not mad about it. Primarily found in Europe these insects adorn the skin of many...its body holds the image of the human skull, where it gets its name! Don't believe us? Google it.

Perhaps when you Google death moth you will not only see the body of the insect for reference, but you'll also see many prompted search engine questions such as "What does the Silence of Moth mean?" aha, so now you see our lame joke aka the title of this little feature. Yeah, it may be a total dad joke, but believe it or not that was one of the most seminal visuals of our young lives...we remember passing the VHS tape on the shelves at Blockbuster, forever banned by our parents to ever rent it. Which only added to our curiosity. The skull, the key to the power of death moth tattoos, is one of the most compelling images in the whole collection of symbology. It hits us deep considering it reminds us of our own mortality.
