Movie Tattoos – Characters and Scenes Movie Tattoo Designs

Posted on 23 September 2012 by Karen L. Hudson

People who don’t “get” tattoos really don’t understand why anyone would get a tattoo of a movie character, movie celebrity, or some other token tattoo from a favorite movie. But sometimes movies speak to us in ways nothing else can, and sometimes we relate to a character better than the people around us. Movie tattoos are at the heart of most avid collectors, and here are some of the best movie-related tattoos from various artists.
