10 insane tattoo sleeves dedicated to horror films

September 28 2017, 2:55 PM EDT By Taylor Markarian


A world of color for the one and only Captain Spaulding! This list wouldn’t be complete without one of Rob Zombie’s famously fucked-up characters from The Devil’s Rejects and House Of 1000 Corpses. Of course, there also are appearances on this sleeve from Predator, Freddy, Jason and more.

Hellraiser, Michael Myers, Norman Bates, Damien, Jack Torrance, Jigsaw — this sleeve is brimming with the baddest villains of all time. And those are just a few! This person knows horror from every decade and represents like a true fan.

Every zombie-phile out there knows the importance of Night Of The Living Dead to the genre. This punked-out sleeve takes a more cartoonish approach, which stands out amongst the portraiture that tends to overwhelm horror movie tattoos.

The Silent Hill movies are based on the video game of the same name, including iconic figures such as Pyramid Head and the disfigured nurses, both of whom appear here. The color on this sleeve is incredibly vivid, and the artistry is essentially flawless.

While familiar faces from The Silence Of The LambsScream and Dead Snow all appear on this impeccable black-and-grey sleeve, perhaps the most important face is not fictional. That would be, of course, that of one of the most influential directors of all time, Alfred Hitchcock. His horror movies, including Psycho and The Birds, continue to influence artists and producers to this day. His legacy is immeasurable.
