At some point in our lives, we all have thought about the prospect of getting a tattoo.

Well, not only have these people overcome the hesitations of “does getting a tattoo hurt?” or “is it really the right time?”, they did so marvellously by choosing Goosebumps, the stepping stone of kids into the genre of horror novels. Inspired by R.L Stein’s monsters, they have chosen some fantastic tattoos.

A total of 235 books have been published as part of the Goosebumps series. They are filled with tales of all kinds of monsters. As a child, we would often sit with a Goosebumps book at night and my mind would start turning the black and white writing into the most horrifying monsters ever, probably scarier than the images on the covers. Read on ahead to find out the types of monsters that got selected as tattoos, and believe me when we say it really is some of the most inspired inkwork we have seen.

Here is a list of some Goosebumps tattoos that we are sure will blow your mind.

Welcome To HorrorLand

@tattooprodigies

Remember what we said about forming a mental image of the monsters as a kid? Well, this tattoo will surely make you rethink that. With the colours so vivid, it’s almost as if you’re standing in front of HorrorLand. Not only does the runny red writing on the entry board have a bloody feel to it, but the oozing green monster is also terrifying and the tree and crows in the background add an ominous tone. Rest assured if you’re planning on getting this to scare your friends, we would say mission successful.

Black And White Haunted Mask

One of the most terrifying characters in probably the haunted mask.

This depiction of Carly Beth putting on the mask while drooling brings out the blood-thirsty nature of the character. Even though the tattoo is done in black and white, it is nothing short of terrifying with those sharp fangs for teeth and glaring eyes.

Haunted Mask In The Mirror Mirror

In this one, the green ink used by the artist has impeccably been put into the depiction of the already terrifying haunted mask to make its image even more terrifying. Also, they have managed to perfectly replicate the haunted mask as seen in the book cover, with its wrinkly green skin and hollow yellow eyes.

Now, anyone who’s read the haunted mask story knows how it goes. No spoilers here though. This tattoo is a perfect combination of horror and cuteness. While the bloody knife, green haunted skin of the mask, and the fangs yell out murder and monster, you can’t deny that Carly looks super cute in those pigtails and those black anime eyes.

Monster Mask And Carly At HorrorLand

Monster Mask And Carly At HorrorLand
@shay.perry

A much-awaited cross-over. A terrifying monster at an even more terrifying place, this tattoo depicts Monster Mask Carly and the entry to HorrorLand. The artist has used different colours to ink this tattoo which leaves only the part of being scared to our imagination.

Slappy Tattoo With His Icy Stare

@fallensparrowtattoos

Probably the most terrifying character in the goosebumps universe is Slappy the living dummy. This will probably spook even most grownups.

This beautifully drawn tattoo really brings out the devil in Slappy, with a green light casting a foreboding shadow on his face. The best part of the tattoo is how the artist has been able to portray Slappy’s icy evil stare, which paired with the smile and the glowing goosebumps writing makes it a sight to behold.

Slappy With His Iconic Grin

@mistercoletattoo

This tattoo is devoid of the demonic glow, but it still looks pretty terrifying. The artist has managed to perfectly capture Slappy’s iconic grin. It’s almost as if anyone who looks at this will get possessed in real life. Even the slightly dull colouration of the tattoo goes perfectly with the theme.

Humans Possessed By The Monster Blood

@darciekaportattoo

One of the fan-favourites. Monster blood.

This tattoo portrays two humans being enveloped by the monster who is slowly eating them. you can see the Monster blood latched onto the face of the person in front, slowly melting their skin, while the person at the back has already been devoured, with worms coming out of their skull. The mixture of colours used by the artist brings out their pain, noticeable by the detailing of the eyes. The tattoo also comes with the trademark catchphrase of every Goosebumps novel: readers beware.

The Venus Fly Trap Monster From Stay Out Of The Basement

@ryangraytattoos

An underrated character, the venus flytrap monster has been mentioned in a few books, making its debut in the book titled “Stay out of the basement”.

This tattoo has been painted with different shaded of green, with a patch of skin in the middle for the hand. This is commendable for the level of detailing alone: the monster hand and the venus flytrap heads. The artist hasn’t even left out the vines of the monster plant, coiled around the wrist of the hand.

@neczilla

Aah! The OG. This is probably the most universal tattoo for a fan who doesn’t like to play favourites. The green oozing letters bring this tattoo to life, with an apt resemblance to every goosebumps book cover ever. Also, besides the main tattoo, we have fan-favourite Slappy. Although not as well-drawn as other tattoos focused solely on Slappy, it does not draw away any attention from the main attraction.

We hope this was a trip down memory lane when the novels of Stephen King were out of our grasp. When we would buy up all the Goosebumps and try to complete our collections. As for choosing a tattoo, you get to choose any tattoo you please. If you want a spooky tattoo, Goosebumps is a superb choice.

But these are not the only ones out there. Here are some other goosebumps tattoo designs you can try:

  • The letter “G” from Goosebumps
  • Werewolf os fever swamp goosebumps tattoo
  • Body Snatchers tattoo
  • The monsters from Scary Summer
