As we close in on October 31, AiPT! will be reviewing and recommending various pieces of underappreciated scary media-books, comics, movies, and television-to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.

It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain. Now if there’s anything that says Celtic harvest festivals, tradition and All Hallows’ Eve it’s scary tattoos! Right?! Regardless of my poor reasoning, I felt AiPT!’s 31 Days of Halloween celebration was a great excuse to showcase tattoos from across the horror genre. As an avid horror and tattoo enthusiast, I’ve always loved seeing what folks who share my passion come up with. I hope you enjoy this gallery as much as I do.

Arguably the birth of the horror film genre

If only we could lift that mask up

It’s been over 35 years and this film is still terrifying

Welcome to the horror hall of fame my friend

Holy back-piece Batman!

If romance isn’t dead then what is it?

I can’t say I’d feel great about this hand reaching for me

Barbecue is a dish enjoyed by many cultures

Safe to say this was a successful coverup

The father of all us horror fans

Sweet dreams

Look closely and you’ll see the face of countless nightmares

Who says we’re not family friendly?!

One of the films that I first remembering traumatizing me

Absolutely incredible about sums it up
