Dead Meat’s ‘Kill Count’ Series: Tattoo Edition (Part 2)

It’s been a fortnight and we’re back with Part 2 of our tattoo companion to Dead Meat’s Kill Count series.

We took a week off to work on the 200-plus articles we have in our drafts – you’ll see them published over the next couple of months before the spooky season kicks off in September.

We also began a similar series for Impractical Jokers Brian Quinn’s online radio show. We took all the songs he’s played over the first five episodes and attempted to match a tattoo to each of them. Click here to check it out.

When we haven’t been collecting tattoo images, listening to music, or re-watching more Kill Counts, we’ve been spending a small fortune trying to track down particular CDs and DVDs to fill out our collection.

Anyway, enough about us – you’re here to see some horror movie themed tattoos, so let’s get to them!
