Stranger Things has been a runaway success and, since the premiere of season one in July 2016, people have had no reservations about getting inked to proclaim their love for the show.
We must say, we are impressed with the tattoos we have seen and selected for this post. Unlike certain movies and particular characters, not all of these Stranger Things tattoos are just generic portraits created from the same stock image – people have been getting creative and it has resulted in some outstanding tattoos. Unlike the vast majority of Breaking Bad that are Walter White portraits, these Stranger Things tattoos include Demogorgons, lights, waffles, various characters, the Upside Down, and Eleven, of course.
There’s so much to love about this show, and so much to influence tattoo concepts.
At the time of posting, there are over 5000 posts tagged with #strangerthingstattoo on Instagram – an increase of 3800 in the last year. This is quite a feat for a show with only two seasons and 17 episodes; so many more long-running shows don’t have nearly as many (if any) tattoos dedicated to them.
You might be sick of us writing this but we implore you (as always) to not copy these tattoos and only be inspired by them. If these 65 people have managed to think of unique ideas, then you can too! Pick the perfect tattoo artist and give them the creative freedom that they desire.
People have Stranger Things fever and it seems that a tattoo is the only cure…
