Let’s face it: There is a huge lack of goth emojis that allow us to express ourselves fully through texts and Snapchats. You might be quick to think of the dead flower or the skull emoji, but those just aren’t enough to cut it. Here are 13 goth emojis we wish existed.
This one is easy because the emoji already exists; they just need to add better colors than a basic red shade. Black would definitely be our first choice, and while they’re at it, they might as well add a black kiss print emoji.
Every emoji of couples, but put them in all-black outfits
This is another way to put a goth spin on plain emojis. Every emoji of people holding hands just needs to be fitted in some black skinny jeans and a My Chemical Romance shirt, and they would be perfect.
Yes, there might already be an orange cat featured in the emoji bank, but we’d like a little black furry friend as well. Don’t even try to deny that it wouldn’t be in your “frequently used” section at all times.
Flaming eyes on a face
For when you want to watch the world burn.
A hand with black nail polish
People have made edits of this on the internet so often that it seems like it already exists, but sadly, it does not. That needs to change so we can show off our diva side and our punk side at the same time.
The only thing close to this that already exists is a high-knee light brown boot, which is definitely not goth enough.
The eyeball, but with a lot of eyeliner
Because more is better.
Any of the face emojis with Myspace hair
This request is a bit of a stretch, but they would just be more of our style.
Why spend time typing out a message to your friends asking if they want to speak to ghosts when you could just send an emoji?
A checkered belt
Who knows what context the regular belt emoji is even used for, so there can’t be any harm in adding a goth version.
An emoji with a mohawk
Think old-school Travis Barker in emoji form.
A bouquet of dead flowers
The single dead rose is a step, but we need to take it up a notch.
A dark rain cloud
It’s kind of silly that the regular rain clouds are white anyway.
