So park your car at “ lookout point", grab some blood covered popcorn, and enjoy our list of the 10 Best Horror Icons tattoos….

#10: Jaws Tattoo

Our first tattoo makes you think twice anytime you go ocean... Jaws has always been our favorite monster of the deep, and although the movie may look a bit dated, this Jaws tattoo looks as fresh as a sunny day at the beach. But don't get too comfortable...

#9: Art The Clown Tattoo

The newest horror clown to haunt our dreams and make children's parties even scarier is Art The Clown. And although he is the new "clown" on the block, he is by far the most brutal and scary. This tattoo shows him with is trademark smile.

#6: Jack Skellington Tattoo

The pumpkin king himself is #5 on our list, and if his horror level was on par with his icon level, he would been much higher. Either way there is no denying the impact of Jack Skellington on the silver screen and the tattoo industry.

#4: Ghost Face Tattoo

Our next tattoo will really make you "Scream"... Ghost Face is a great tattoo idea, and the best part is, it's just a mask! So depending on your mood it can be a tattoo of any of the characters who have been behind the Ghost Face mask. But or favorite will always be the OGs (original ghostface's), Billy and Stu.

#3: Michael Myers Tattoo

The killer that hides away all year only to come back each Halloween to kill the same person, leaving a bloody trail on his way. Dedication to a single person like that is kin of romantic... I mean sure he want's to kill her... but it's only like 1 day year... I'm sure there are people you want dead from time to time....

#2: Pinhead Tattoo

Pinhead has put a confusing horror movie franchise, Hellraiser (I mean seriously, what is the movie about?),  on his back, and single handedly (but with many pins) made himself one of the most iconic movie monsters.  Pinhead also looks awesome tattooed, as you can see from the tattoo below.

#1: Freddy Krueger Tattoo

The undisputed king of horror icons is Freddy Krueger. A burnt face has never been so beautiful, that combined with nails that would make a teenage girl blush, a catchy nursery rhyme, and the ability to attack you in your dreams. makes Freddy the ultimate Horror tattoo.
