Many people associate October with Halloween, general spookiness, and the official start of autumn. Being in Salem, we get a good dose of spooky year round, but somehow as soon as the calendar folds over to October 1st, the number of witch hats, weird masks, and pumpkin goodies vastly increases. And we also do a fair amount of Halloween-related tattoos year round, but it’s no secret that this number also increases during this chilly month. We are always more than happy to give a Salem visitor a permanent souvenir from their trip! In fact, many visitors book their October appointments with us in advance, to make sure that they get some time with one of our artists that they’ve been admiring from afar.
We do still have spots open, but they’re filling up fast! If you’re a traveler or a local that wants to get some work done this month, be sure to give us a call soon! 978.744.9393
Of course, we’re not going to make this a text-only post — your eyes deserve more than that! In honor of our favorite month of ghouls, here are some amazingly creepy tattoos from years past by our artists.
I bet you can guess who this one’s from. Bold backpiece? Black and grey? Fantastically shiver-inducing? Definitely Natan’s work.
Steve created this death dealer piece. You would not want this guy and his horse coming after you.
The flowers don’t make this skull piece by PJ any less tough.
Jack-o-lanterns are a popular choice when it comes to Salem tattoo souvenirs. Not as popular as witches, of course. Molly executed this one so wonderfully, that two future clients from North Carolina scheduled time with her for their visit this year.
Molly also did this next tattoo, which we wouldn’t call SPOOKY, but it’s still darn good and reminds us of fall in Salem.
We’ve also done more than one Halloween sleeve. This is a great example, thanks to Natan. The piece flows with that arm perfectly.
Well there’s your pre-Halloween teaser. We’ll definitely be sharing more with you as the month rolls on!
