Nightmare Before Christmas Tattoo Gallery

By far the most popular movie tattoo theme, by a significant margin I’d say, is The Nightmare Before Christmas (search BME for terms like “nightmare christmas” or “skellington” to see lots more). Given that Jack’s journey into this holiday starts today, let me share some of the Nightmare Before Christmas tattoos that I’ve received over the past few years.

You can click on any of the pictures below to zoom in. The last one is not the Pumpkin King, but the Drunken King — the day Jack Skellington decided to go Irish and take over St. Paddy’s Day instead. Anyway, if you have a Nightmare tattoo (or any tattoo), email me a high res copy to submissions@bmezine.com (and get yourself a free BME membership in the process).

I’ll try and post more Christmas and seasonal themed tattoos over the next few days.
