Sinister tattoos are dark, scary, and often some of the most creative tattoos that exist. In order for a tattoo to be sinister, the artist creating the design must take his mind well past the plain of reality, into the deep dark corners of the human psyche. This also includes dark history, occult knowledge, and an understanding of dark imagery. This is a popular tattoo category precisely because it is so creative. These dark masterpieces are eye catchers, and can be meaningful to the wearer, especially if he or she is going through or has gone through traumatic events and dark times in life.
