What's This? What's This? 'Nightmare Before Christmas' Tattoos


Nightmare Before Christmas has one of the most devout fanbases in cinematic history. I think only Rocky Horror Picture Show could match it. And why not? It blends the two best holidays - Christmas and Halloween - into one magical film experience.

Naturally, where there is a cult following... there are tattoos. Nightmare Before Christmas has inspired a kajillion tattoos on a bazillion fans. Rather than being content with mere portraits of their favorite characters, many Nightmare fans design incredible tableaus with their favorite characters. In honor of Christmas, and one of our favorite Christmas movies, I have trawled the darkest corners of the interwebz, looking for the most amazing Nightmare tattoos.
