Art the Clown from ‘Terrifier’ Tattoo Inspiration

Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers have proven that horror movie villains need not talk in order to appear absolutely terrifying – Art the Clown now joins that list.

Clowns are scary enough to people, let alone one with such violent tendencies

Art the Clown’s first appearance was in 2013’s All Hallows’ Eve, but it was 2016’s Terrifer – written and directed by Damien Leone – that Art got a starring role and made an impact in the horror genre.

Terrifier had a limited theatrical run and was released to DVD and Blu-ray in 2018. We were made aware of Terrifier thanks to Dead Meat’s ‘Kill Count’ series.

A sequel was written and filming began in 2019, however the pandemic impacted its shooting schedule. Terrifier 2 is set for release sometime this year with a third film already in the planning stages.

You have to wait a little longer for the Terrifier sequel, but what you can do until then is to get a tattoo inspired by the film.

Victims and Final Girls are uncommon in tattoos as people prefer the villains with which to decorate their bodies. Art the Clown’s victims would certainly make for some terrifying and gory tattoos.

Who do you find scariest: Pennywise or Art the Clown?
