Embodiment of Horror

I have two tattoos.  I'm thinking of getting a third.

Probably not this one.

While searching for an image for a recent episode of TheAvod I unwittingly stumbled into the horror tattoo subculture.  I love looking at pictures of awful tattoos and I thought I just hit pay dirt.  Turns out that a lot of horror tattoos aren't ugly at all.  Rather, they're artful and skillfully done.

But still, you get some real eyebrow-raisers.

And so, without further comment I present D's gallery of horror tats:

very nice. I have a tattoo on my arm that could easily be included on the list, but just because it is a horrifically awful reminder of something stupid I did when I was 18. Hindsight's 20/20 right?

Oh man. The one on my back was supposed to be part one of a three-parter but I think I'd rather grow the one into something else.
