Cool tattoos can be divided into several sub niches. These include fantasy, sci-fi and horror. Popular examples of cool tattoos of the fantasy genre include fairies, wizards, unicorns and other mythological creatures. Sci-Fi tattoos include the familiar elements of aliens, space craft, and planets. Cool tattoos that contain horror elements include demons, devils, Hollywood monster and sometime serial killers. The tattoo in the picture is a classic example of a cool tattoo with a horror element to it. It depicts a scare crow that has been reanimated to life. This is a creature that in some mythologies are associated with the grim reaper. It is representative of the creature harvesting the human soul and taking them to the land of the dead. Now, you may think that the birds in this tattoo are crows, since this is a scare crow, but they are actually ravens. Ravens are representative of death. This has the impact of furthering the dramatic nature of the tattoo and thus, making it even cooler. The dark monotone color of the ink also makes this cool tattoo stand out even more. And it impresses on the beholder the dark and ominous nature of this design.
Some people that set out to get cool tattoos end up getting stuff like this. Who in the world wants the alien monster bursting through their chest imprinted on them forever? Well, if you do then find the artist that did this one because it is done very, very well. This guy must be a blast at parties.
