Halloween Tattoo - Although it might seem like a stretch to have a holiday themed tattoo, don't bet on it, especially when it comes to Halloween. Call it our fascination for the spooky or our delight in the devlish but Halloween images have definitely made their way under our skins. Scenes with Jack O’Lanterns, a scary house at night with bats, witches, and ghouls against a full moon are all part of the celebration of a night which used to be known as All Hallows’ Eve. Begun in ancient Britain, it served as the recognized end of summer. It was a time of renewal but also looking backward, as the souls of the dead were believed to pay a visit on this evening. Eventually all manner of ghosts, goblins, black cats, fairies, and demons were thought to be roaming about making trouble for the living.
