Pumpkinhead is one of those great old revenge horror stories that have been forgotten in recent years as the stable of regurgitated, Freddy-come-lately horror flicks are all getting to makeover treatment. But Pumpkinhead is terrifying. It also carries with it a moral that so many new horror stories have sacrificed for hack and slash, get rich quick movie making. It warns of the damage done to us when we pursue revenge. In a world where horror movie remakes are hit-or-miss, treat yourself and give Pumpkinhead a watch. You'll be glad you did!
This particular piece is part of Nick's horror movie leg sleeve and won a Tattoo of the Day at the Louisville Tattoo Arts Convention a few weeks ago. We have a small session left to finish out the background and add white and more veining in the head, so taking such an award at a show filled with talented artists is something we at Cardinal Tattoo consider a great achievement!
