    Top 7 ‘Candyman’ Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Upon the release of Candyman in 1992, the lore of the Candyman became entwined with that of Bloody Mary. Growing up in the ’90s it was his name – and not Bloody Mary’s – we would stand in front of a mirror and say. Was this the same for you? It was through this silly (and scary) school toilet activity that we were first made aware of Candyman, well before we knew the films existed. Based on Clive Barker’s short story The Forbidden, Candyman was written and directed by Bernard Rose and released in cinemas in October 1992. The setting was changed from Liverpool, England to Chicago in the US,…

    Top 10 Bedsheet Ghost Tattoos by Anthony Elliott (@aelliott2) – Littered With Garbage

    To round out our ghostly posts for Halloween Month, we’ve selected our favourite bedsheet ghost tattoos from Anthony Elliott aka @aelliott2 on Instagram. That budget-busting costume of a ghost made from an old bedsheet with eye holes cut out has a supernatural twist in these tattoos as these spirits have adopted the same disguise. These ghosts aren’t just chilling out, they’re trick-or-treating, practicing archery and haunting graveyards. The illustrative neo trad style of Anthony’s work really adds personality to each tattoo. Click here for details on how to book an appointment with Anthony for your very own ghost (or any other kind of) tattoo. If you’d like to learn more…

    ‘Mean Girls’ x Halloween Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Is three posts featuring the tattoos inspired by Mean Girls two too many? We say no. If you’re a frequent visitor to LWG then you’ve probably seen our list of the Top 70 Mean Girls Tattoos and Mean Girls x Christmas Tattoos that we published late last year. We’re missing the spooky season so we thought we’d put together a collection of all the Mean Girls x Halloween tattoos we’ve found. There’s nine tattoos in total, with Karen and her mouse costume a clear favourite, and a couple of Hocus Pocus mashups included. We’d love to see a tattoo of Kady in her actually scary Halloween costume, or one of…

    Top 13 ‘Casper the Friendly Ghost’ Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Casper’s origins begin several decades before the live-action Casper film. Created by Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo, Casper turned 90 last year; the children’s book The Friendly Ghost was published in 1939. The rights to Casper were sold and in 1945 the Noveltoon titled The Friendly Ghost was produced by Paramount Pictures’ Famous Studios. Casper the Friendly Ghost began in 1950, with the comics published a year prior. In 1963 The New Casper Cartoon Show aired. If you grew up in the 90s, kids were a little bit in love with Casper (in his human form), played by Devon Sawa. Did you wish you could have traded places with Christina…

    Top 25 Tombstone Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    If there’s one thing spookier than a haunted house, it’s a graveyard. It’s ingrained in us to fear death, so even the thought of visiting a graveyard is enough to send a chill down your spine. A graveyard/cemetery is a place where our deceased loved ones, both good and evil people are buried. There’s got to be spirits roaming the grounds – we like to imagine that it’s a similar supernatural social scene to that in The Sims. If you love all things morbid, then this style and theme of tattoos is right down your alley. We have  selected a mix of tombstone-only tattoos and full-on graveyard pieces with multiple…

    Top 20 Spoopy Jack-O’-Lantern Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    Halloween ’tis the season to be both spooky and spoopy! While we’ll be sharing a majority of spooky tattoos this Halloween Month, some of the 100 posts we have planned will have their own spoopy twist. You already know how a traditional jack-o’-lantern should look; a spoopy jack-o’-lantern tattoo has lots of colours, is sometimes sparkly, and you’ll find a sweet, smiling face carved into the pumpkin. If you love the merge of cute and creepy imagery, then a spoopy tattoo could be just the thing you need. For more creepier and unusual jack-o’-lantern tattoos click here.

    Top 10 Admiral Ackbar Tattoos – Littered With Garbage

    This is not a trap, nor a meme – these are the top 10 Admiral Ackbar tattoos. In this list there are the usual colour realism and neo trad renderings, but some of the tattoos featured, like those in this Yoda post, are a little silly (yet still quite tame) given Admiral Ackbar’s unusual appearance – think about it. Get your minds out of the gutter and show some respect to the commander of the Rebel Alliance by admiring these Admiral Ackbar tattoos… Neo trad Admiral Ackbar tattoo by @deankalcoff Colour realism Admiral Ackbar tattoo by @benjaminlaukis Traditional Admiral Ackbar tattoo by @wonkytiger Neo trad Admiral Ackbar tattoo by @joshdelaney Colour…
