Hellboy Tattoos

Updated on January 27, 2016

Tattoos for everything, even Hellboy

If there's an interesting story to tell, there's an interesting tattoo to design, and that's the truth with the cult hero 'Hellboy,' who has been a fixture among fans for those who know him for some time.

His unique reddish skin gives him great opportunity for artists and tattoo designers, as the solid color looks great if it is included in a tattoo, as well as when inked in black and white. The character's image doesn't suffer either way, although I always think black and white work better in most circumstances with any tattoos, as the right touch of limited color included with the black and white can really set the image off good.

As for the Hellboy tattoos, because of the unique solid color associated with him, it allows a lot of color to the ink design, which in many cases makes the tattoo better.

Now I like it either way in the case of Hellboy, because there's not a lot of other colors to add which could interfere and make the tattoo design too busy and not look good.

That big hand is called the "Right Hand of Doom," and is basically invulnerable and a powerful, natural weapon for Hellboy, who was created by Mike Mignola.
