Horror Tats

I love horror tats as it shows the love of the genre and when people sport horror tattoos you know they’re hardcore fans of the genre.

I really enjoyed tattooing Jigsaw’s master instructor as it is my favorite series in horror. It’s both scary and clever, and I love that combination. My favorite kill in the series has to be the ice cube kill. Tattooing Billy was very challenging, so I really took my time to get every little nuance and shading/shadowing possible. Billy is very recognizable so I wanted to do this justice. I was (and still am) very happy with the end result!

As you may know (or not), when I began my horror career I wasn’t a fan of the Friday the 13th franchise. However, it has grown on me as I have learned to appreciate the slasher sub-genre (BillChete may or may not be to blame for that… hehe). This tattoo was very challenging, since it was my first recognizable work and it was also the first time I used a stencil. I am very satisfied with the result.

I have always loved the Phantom of the Opera story. The book, the A.L. Webber musical, and now the fantastic original Lon Chaney movie. So, I just had to tattoo this on myself. I tried an effect around the mask that didn’t go exactly as I wanted, but still, I am very satisfied with the result. I hope you like it too.

Halloween 2 was the first slasher I ever saw, and it fascinated me. I think Michael Myers is an immensely effective, scary character, so I felt a bit of pressure to get him exactly right. I think I can say I did. This tattoo looks just like him; he looks menacing. This is also my favorite mask of his. The shading on his face came out exactly the way I wanted, and it healed beautifully.
