Ghouls, Ghosts and Demonic Pumpkins Unite for Halloween Tattoo Fright!

Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

Today we celebrate this ancient festival of Samhain with a few glorious Halloween Tattoos we're sure will inspire!

On this day of days, what immediately comes to mind? Is it...carved pumpkins and candy corn? Fake blood, horror films, and black cats? How about Tim Burton creations, reapers, and sounds that go bump in the night? Maybe this is all a little...corny...but it's very true to say that everyone has their own idea about what makes All Hallows Eve that awesome celebration that is. Believe it or not, this day is the third most celebrated holiday in the US, right after New Years Eve and Super Bowl Sunday. So, whether it's your childhood explorations ridding neighborhoods of all their candy, or if it's getting wasted in a cheap costume in some dive bar, this collection of Halloween tattoos has got you covered.

Just in case you don't know we figured you'd be interested to hear all of those ancient facts about the origins of this spooky holiday. Halloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, pronounced sow-in. The Celts were actually celebrating their New Year on November 1st, however, the night before was a time when the land of the living and the dead merged. Wearing costumes to ward off evil spirits and ghosts, the holiday may have begun as a pagan festival, but as the Halloween tattoos show...the holiday means much more than that now!

While 93% of children in the US will be donning costumes on this night of nights to gather candy door to door, most adults will take this night to overly decorate their house in a Halloween frenzy, whilst handing out goodies to kiddos until the wee hours. And others, like ourselves, will be getting another Halloween tattoo, and then proceed to get lit...while also snacking on mini Snickers bars and Kit Kats. Whatever you end doing, remember that one quarter of all candy sold during the year, is sold don't forget to get your fix!
