Top 7 Death Becomes Her Tattoos

Death Becomes Her is a 1992 black comedy film which starred Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis and Isabella Rossellini.

Streep and Hawn’s characters are rivals who both drink a magic potion which promises eternal youth but, as with anything that sounds too good to be true, it comes with a number of side effects.

After a series of accidents and fights they’re left with very obvious injuries which otherwise would have been lethal. They were desperate for youth and beauty but ended up disfigured and forced to live that way for an eternity.

Tattoo ink is like our very own magic potion – being covered in memories of years past leaves us feeling young.

The main side effect of getting tattooed include wanting to get more; you can avoid anything seriously nasty by carefully researching the right tattoo artist for the vision and style for your piece.

The majority of these Death Becomes Her tattoos are of the potion, with the exception being Stacey Martin’s kewpies and a piece by Kitty Dearest. Don’t let that deter you from getting the potion tattoo that you so desperately want. As you can see, each of these potion tattoos is unique and created as a one-off piece by the tattoo artists, and any reputable tattooer can create a new design just for you.

Take a look at these tattoos and then go and re-watch the film in order to find even more inspiration.
