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."

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."

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!"
