Like with the people who cosplay as Elvira, you’d think it’d be the same tattoo over and over – but it’s not. Some people have gone far outside the box to make sure their ink take on the Mistress of the Dark is unique to their skin and their skin only. So to celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of the best and most well-loved cult classics, here are 13 people who decided Elvira was the perfect tattoo subject.
13. (Small) Leg Up On the Competition
You can kind of see that this one’s done nicely.

If Elvira herself approves of herself as a Jem character, guess we do too.

We like the sketch book look to this one, you?
