If your love for Halloween extends well beyond one day, it may be worth considering something a little more… permanent ;) To help inspire your next bit of ink, we found some of the cutest spooky Halloween tattoos on Instagram. These zombies, vampires and other spooky creatures of the night have been given an unexpectedly cute twist. But hey, no one’s complaining. Scroll down for 15 super cute and spooky Halloween tattoos you’ll definitely choose over candy.
1. Jack-o’-Lantern: Celebrate your favorite holiday with a classic jack-o’-lantern. Frame it with a couple of bats and an oozing slime-covered heart and you will have done Halloween justice.
2. Vampire Fangs: They may be blood-suckers, but you can’t deny vampires are the classiest creepy characters in the realm of monsters. Get this stylish set of ombre chompers if you agree.
3. Hocus Pocus Spell Book: Your childhood would not be the same without having watched Hocus Pocus every Halloween. Rep some pride for the Sanderson sisters with a tattoo of their most beloved spell book.
4. Haunted House: You really *can’t* go wrong with a haunted house tattoo. A timeless motif in scary books and films, the classic haunted house motif is one that’ll continue to endure, even as a tattoo.
5. Skeleton Hand: Regardless of whether you want to symbolize good luck or peace, a hand gesture is 10 times cooler in skeletal form. Add splotches of bright color to channel this bold look with added dimension.
6. Alice in Wonderland x Haunted Mansion: Put a spooky spin on a Disney classic like Alice in Wonderland to a striking effect. Just imagine — the Disney x Tim Burton mashup you’ve always wished for could come true with your tat!
7. Poison Apple: Snow White may have been the creepiest Disney Princess film yet, TBH. It’s amazing we turned out okay after watching a movie about an evil queen, a haunted forest *and* poison apples.

14. Marceline Cupcake: If you didn’t think Adventure Time characters could get any cuter, think again. Here’s what Marceline the Vampire Queen would look like if she became a baked dessert. Seriously, SO cute!
