27 Truly Terrifying Tattoos People Actually Have

It can be difficult to narrow down exactly what you want inked into your skin for life when deciding on a tattoo. Some might go for a favorite literature reference, like an homage to a specific book or author that resonated with them. Maybe they’ll look to their partner in crime for a cute couples tattoo.

These people decided their flesh was best used as a canvas for only creepy and terrifying tattoo art. Could you imagine showing up to a first date and seeing one of these on someone’s arm? Or worse… your kids bringing that person home to meet grandma this Christmas? Yikes.

A valley zombie girl is just as gross as other zombies. Got it.
