It's Halloween, so it was only fitting that we share some scary tattoos to set the mood. Below are 13 of the spookiest tattoos of the season! All the art is extraordinarily well done, so it's possible that just by thinking about the potential backstories will sends chills up your spines. Which one would you want to either get or remove?

Hard to beat a big, bad wolf... If it's even a wolf. Regardless, this is some scary stuff.

11. Bloody Mouth Neck Tattoo

Eyes in the back of your head, literally.
8. Skulls Head Tattoo
When you're not worried about skeletons in your closet because they're all in your head.

1. Halloween Forever Tattoo
What this tattoo might lack in the creepy factor, it makes up for in spirit. Our Halloween list wouldn't be complete without an evil Jack O' Lantern, obviously!
We compiled this list in good fun, but remember that each tattoo tells a story about its owner, often snapshotting a certain time period or mindset during his or her life. As people age and undergo different experiences, however, some tattoos no longer reflect who their owners have become. Tattoo regret can be a scary idea, but just know there are always options of removal or replacement!
