23 Totally Cool & Creepy Halloween Tattoos (Photos)

Halloween is a holiday predominantly celebrated by children. It’s a day of dress up, school parades, trick or treating and lots and lots of candy. But even though many adults may be too old to ring bells for sweets, Halloween still has a soft spot in their hearts, and apparently also on their skin.

While tattoos celebrating Arbor Day or Ground Hog Day may be rare, getting a tattoo in honor of Halloween is pretty darn popular. Halloween’s iconic images are a good match for tattoo art with bats, skulls, zombie and, of course, pumpkins.

Check out these 23 examples of tattooed homages to Halloween right here.
