Tattoo Artists and Art

Why we love spooky Halloween flash

Witches’ hats, black cats, smiling pumpkins, flying bats, dusty brooms, ugly monsters, wandering zombies… the list of possible imagery for a Halloween flash sheet is endless.

That’s why I never get bored of browsing them online and getting inspiration for future Halloween tattoos. There’s something satisfying about seeing so much iconic Halloween symbology on one sheet of paper… all hail the Halloween flash!

I’ll let the severed body parts do the talking: here are 30 of my favourites, from tattoo artists all around the world.
