Evil Tattoos & Evil Tattoo Designs
For hardcore body art enthusiasts, evil tattoos are an absolute must! Whereas some people may prefer to adorn their body with various religious symbols, others opt for a piece that is more reminiscent of the darker side.
Evil tattoo designs allow you to express your true imaginative potential and there is no limit to the supernatural entities that you could choose to have as the central feature of your tattoo.
Your first thoughts on evil tattoo designs are undoubtedly going to focus on death and all of the symbols that are usually associated with this.
The ‘Grim Weaper’ puts in regular appearances with evil tattoo designs, as for many, he is synonymous with many childhood nightmares and epitomizes an angel of death delivering the evil souls to the gates of hell. Just one other character could ever conjure up more fear than we hold towards this spirit and we’ll discuss him a little later on.
Evil tattoo designs provide plenty of scope to cover as large an area on the body as you’d like. People who are interested in accumulating larger pieces (e.g. full sleeves and back pieces), will use a collection of evil tattoo designs and bring them all together to make for some amazing final body work.
Without a shadow of doubt, skulls would have to be the most common feature in evil tattoo designs. Whether on their own, or a collection of skulls together, they allow for some clever and breathtaking additional design features to be crafted around them. One good and popular example now is where tribal work can weave in and out of the crevices of the skull itself. The finished effect here is a serious piece of eye-catching and thought-provoking work.
Evil tattoos do not necessarily have to emphasize on the supernatural. Instead, they can also incorporate actual known organic creatures when they are displaying the worst traits of their characters. A fierce big cat would provide a good example here, as would bats, which can be made to look downright rabid. To be honest, having seriously evil tattoo designs etched onto your body is not for everyone.
There seems to be a definite desire to have the finished tattoo look as overtly evil as possible and it seems that this can be quite a bold and brave statement to make. It’s almost as though there appears to be an element of competition between enthusiasts of this style of tattooing.
If you do believe that evil spirits and everything associated with it is all just ‘hocus pocus’, you may want to think about evil tattoo designs that include the most heinous of all characters; namely the Devil himself. Across most religions and cultures, this character has featured as the ultimate representation of all that is bad in this World.
This style of tattoo would usually be crafted as a caricature, based on childish portrayals of the demon, but some can go further than this and actually appear more as a realistic portrait. The finished design is more than enough to send a shiver down most people’s spine.
Whatever central feature you would prefer to use in your evil tattoo designs, one issue will nearly always remain the same: black and grey shading looks best with this type of tattooing. Perhaps a slight injection of red color; depicting drops of blood, will work well, but on the whole black and grey is certainly the most effective. This genre of tattooing is definitely more geared towards males as no other style could ever be any more masculine. If women are contemplating such a design, they may prefer to opt for a smaller piece.
