Bloody Disgusting reader Efrain Franco tipped me off to this Facebook page i which a tattoo artist has created some of the greatest works of art ever to hit the skin of a human being.

Paul Acker is the main artist and owner of Deep Six Tattoo in Philadelphia, PA, where he creates some astounding works of horror art from Freddy Krueger to Snake Plissken.

Check out some of his work below and get more at the above links.

    Those are simply amazing. That is some mad skills…though it makes you wonder wtf happened with the Snake tattoo lol

  • The_Righteous_Dan

    Bet this dude has a hefty waiting list. Amazing work.

  • Chrissie-Watkins

    Oh, wow, I am in love with the werewolf. That you can tell it is from AWIL and not just some random werewolf movie is truly amazing.

  • J Jett

    WOW! this man’s work is incredibly beautiful!! i’m completely blown away. amazing work.

  • part6productions

    Amazing, except I’m gonna have to say boo for the Evil Dead Remake one. A horror fan that gets an Evil Dead remake tattoo is no horror fan at all.

    I’ve never seen a better Freddy tattoo when it comes to his face. That’s amazing. They all are.

  • WalkingDeadGuy
