No matter what anybody says or believes the fact is evil is fascinating. Sometimes the fascination manifests itself in many art forms; history will vouch for that. There are some fascinating works of art that are dedicated to “the evil one”. He come with many names – Satan, Beelzebub, Prince of darkness, the devil to name just a few.
Many may shudder at the thought of getting any of these fascinatingly endless designs dedicated to evil tattooed on their body, but the fact is that this trend is catching on. This does not mean that people are necessarily leaning towards the darker side, it just means that they love the visual impact and the attention they get on getting a tattoo that has a design dedicated to the dark side.
Some love the attention, some like to project that they are indeed into the dark and mysterious arts, some like to use these symbols as a means of warding off evil (contradictory though it may sound) and a very rare few get these designs because they are actually experimenting or trying to experiment with these arts.
When it comes to choice of evil tattoo designs, we all have to agree that the Devil tops the list. Though many may shudder at the thought of getting this design on any part of themselves, the fact is that the devil can make a great visual impact. Known to have several forms ranging from the heart breakingly handsome to having animalistic characteristics, the number of design possibilities is undoubtedly immense when it comes to tattooing.
Apart from the big evil man himself there are many designs to go with. The thing is evil also has its own sets of symbols, lesser demons and many motifs that simply have a lot of importance to those who believe in this stuff. Rendered aptly in black, gray and darker brown shades, these designs are powerful. They are sure to get some attention and a lot of questions. Isn’t that the whole point of tattooing? Putting what you believe in and like in an art form that is both personal and publicly visible?
On the other hand another way to go about getting a tattoo dedicated to the evil side is showing the contrast of good on the one hand and the evil on the other. This sort of design can be rendered by picking one side for evil and the other for good. This means you are telling people that there are always two sides to a thing – good and evil and that one would not work without the other. We can also use the tattoo design to denote that we believe in the great and delicate balance of good and bad that makes this world go around.
Yet another way of going for a tattoo design is to make something that looks innocent and sweet on the surface to have evil undertones. A goblin or leprechaun is a very good example of this type of motifs. We always believe that these creatures are divine and have a lot of mystical and magical powers. But their underlying need to create some confusion and mischief and misleading people lends them an undertone of evil. There are also many angels who though original heavenly, have fallen off their pedestal and gotten into the evil ways. These sort of designs make for fascinating body art.
To get the one evil tattoo design that you like, you can do some research and decide on whether you want to go the whole hog on an evil subject or would like to go for something more subtle but equally effective!
