What I love about this kind of Michael Myers tattoo is that there are so many options to go with here. If you want, your tattoo can feature Michael Myers holding the knife in his hand, stalking his victims.

This kind of Michael Myers tattoo can actually hold a great deal of meaning. This is because Myers is so deeply entwined in murder and mayhem that you can't separate him from his crimes, they are one and the same.

This kind of Michael Myers tattoo also speaks to the fact that Myers is considered to be truly and completely evil with absolutely no redeeming qualities.

If this concept intrigues you, here are the Michael Myers tattoos that you need to see:

Michael Myers Ghost Costume Tattoos

As you know, Michael Myers wears his signature Shatner mask in all the movies. In fact, it is this that makes him so distinguishable.

However, for one scene, he wore a bedsheet over his face, with two holes cut out for the eyes. This made him look like a ghost and he wore the glasses of his victim over this costume.

Now, for the most part, ghost costumes such as this can come off looking rather silly. The way in which Michael Myers wore his, stalking people as he did, sends shivers down your spine.

Not to mention, it also makes for a rather spooky Michael Myers tattoo too.

One element that you can ask your tattoo artist to include in your Michael Myers is fall leaves. Now, what I love about this idea is that it can seem so innocent.

However, when you think about the way that Michael Myers stalks and brutalizes his victims, the concept becomes a lot more scary. Not to mention, this kind of tattoo is also a reminder that everyone who has ever heard of Michael Myers fears fall time due to his continued presence.

Michael Myers and Laurie Strode Tattoos

Now, there have been many Halloween movies. However, there is no denying that the best movies are the ones with Laurie Strode in it.

She is the soul of the movie and the perfect foil for Michael. Laurie adds depth and excitement to the movies in a way that no other character or plotline can. She is a survivor and often a role model for many, especially young women.

So, a good tattoo idea would involve both Michael Myers as well as Laurie.

Once again, you have plenty of options with your Michael Myers tattoo here. You can take a specific scene from the movies, you can have Laurie running away from Michael Myers. Or, you can have her standing and fighting.

Now, you are going to need a talented tattoo artist for this kind of design. This is because unlike with Michael Myers, there is a lot more detail involved with Laurie. If you want a realistic effect, then you should make sure to go with someone who is experienced with detailed portraits.

Lil Michael Myers Tattoos

As far as Michael Myers tattoos go, this can seem like a rather odd concept. However, it is definitely a category of tattoos that you may want to consider if you are looking for a different kind of Michael Myers tattoo.

As the name suggests, this kind of Michael Myers tattoo involves a miniature version of the notorious killer. In some instances, you can also get the younger version of Michael Myers as a tattoo.

So, what is the deal behind this kind of tattoo?

Well, there are a few meanings behind this design. One way to consider such a tattoo is to show the origins of Michael Myers. As you are aware, the first time he killed, he was just a child.

If you go deeper into the movies, though, you will learn that Myers was cursed when he was just a baby, doomed to kill his family as a tribute to a cult. So, in this sense, he has been a killer since he was a baby and this tattoo is one way to depict this.

Another reason to get this zany Michael Myers tattoo can be to take away from the fear that is associated with the character. After all, it is a lot more difficult to be frightened of a child or a baby.

In this case, it is a matter of reducing your fears so that it has less control over you.

Creative Michael Myers Tattoos

Tired of the typical tattoos and want to do something different for your Michael Myers tattoo? Well, there are a few different ideas for these kinds of tattoos too.

For instance, you can get a Michael Myers portrait inside of a heart. This is great for someone with a bit of a dark sense of humor. Clearly, Myers is no one's version of a perfect man, so getting a tattoo of his face in relation to a heart will definitely get you a chuckle.

Speaking of a dark sense of humor, this is a Michael Myers tattoo that you may want to consider for yourself. Of course, this is all about Myers stabbing people but it has just enough of a double innuendo to keep things funny.

I found that this tattoo was a really cool design. One of the things to consider here is that some moths are related to darkness, gothic horror, and even death. If you think back, though, you will also remember that there is a connection to Hannibal Lecter. So, if you want a darker twist to your tattoo, then this is certainly a good idea.

What Does Michael Myers Tattoo Mean?

As you may be aware, Michael Myers does have a tattoo of his own. It is a thorn rune. Now, the tattoo is never explicitly discussed but in Halloween: Curse of Michael Myers, it is revealed that Myers was cursed by the Cult of Thorns when he was a baby. The tattoo is a symbol of this curse.

In case you are wondering about Michael Myers tattoo meaning of the one that you want to get instead, don't worry there is nothing sinister to it. Instead, it is a declaration for your love of the Halloween franchise and wanting to keep this horror classic close to your heart.

After all, it can be argued that creator John Carpenter brought some of the greatest horror masterpieces to life with the Halloween movies. In fact, many people argue that Halloween, Michael Myers, and Laurie Strode set the stage for future horror flicks.

In case you need a refresher, in the original Halloween movies, Michael Myers was just a young boy when he murdered his teenage sister Judith Myers. He was then sent to a sanitarium for the rest of his life.

However, he breaks out and begins stalking a teenage babysitter Laurie Strode. Along the way, he kills many teenagers, plunging the town into terror and darkness. And, despite everyone's best efforts to kill him, he keeps coming back again and again, causing carnage and destruction each time.

Of course, your Michael Myers tattoo can also be a nod to your love of the horror genre or horror movies in general.

Well, there you go - all the Michael Myers tattoos that you could possibly hope for! There is no denying that this is a bit of an odd tattoo concept but luckily there are 100+ ideas for you to choose from.
