    17 Tim Burton Inspired Tattoos That Are Just Incredible

    These tattoos were simply meant to be.

    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to show us their Tim Burton inspired tattoos, and here are some of their submissions.

    1. This wonderful and wintry Edward Scissorhands tattoo.

    "These photos were taken minutes after it was done. Edward Scissorhands is one of my all-time favourite movies."

    Submitted by heresanother.

    2. This adorable outline of Zero.

    3. This The Nightmare Before Christmas tattoo that symbolises some important relationships.

    "At first it was just Jack and Zero because a relationship with a dog is one that will withstand all. Later (after I met my wife) I wanted a way to show that our love will be forever and always. So there is Jack and Sally dancing in the moonlight. More characters will come but this right here means the most to me. My wife and my pups represented by my most favourite movie."

    4. This unique Frankenweenie ink.

    "This was my first big tattoo that I got about seven years ago. I love Tim Burton and I knew I wanted to get something that not a lot of people had, so I hunted and eventually came across the original artwork for Frankenweenie that was released back in 1984."

    5. This bold and beautiful sleeve tattoo.

    6. This fantastic depiction of Beetlejuice as a woman.

    7. This absolutely astounding Edward Scissorhands portrait.

    "I was a Guinea pig for a girl at my go-to shop who wanted to get into colour portraits. She did an incredible job. I love him, and can’t wait to add the hands later on."

    8. This tattoo that adds some Tim Burton aesthetics to The Little Mermaid.

    "It merged my two favourite movies and pays a little bit of personal tribute to my father."

    Submitted by tayalexandrea.

    9. This subtle nod to the poem Voodoo Girl.

    "It has always hit a little close to home for me and still does."

    Submitted by meganm46f6e8fd8.

    10. This impressive Jack and Zero tattoo.

    11. This little cat from the short film Vincent.

    "Like the little boy Vincent I too am very fond of Edgar Allan Poe, thus also bringing in inspiration from the short stories The Black Cat and The Oval Portrait. 3-in-1 gothic beauty!"
