Inside: The Nightmare Before Christmas tattoos including my favorites of Jack, Sally and Zero. From small simple movie designs to the most amazing full on double leg sleeve of Tim Burton’s Halloween hit!

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a hit by Tim Burton. It’s a 1993 animated musical starring Jack Skellington, Zero, and Sally, among others, and is one of my favorites of all time. The stop-motion film tells the story of Jack Skellington, who, bored with his job as king of Halloween Town, decides to try his hand at Christmas instead.

I love the movie and, just like many other people, love the idea of a tattoo to honor it. Luckily, I was able to find several other Nightmare Before Christmas tattoos online.
