In case you hadn’t noticed, a lot of people get zombie tattoos. Which isn’t at all surprising since zombies have permeated pop culture in a major way.

While the concept of zombies originated in Haitian folklore, their popularity in mainstream culture can likely be traced back to George A. Romero’s seminal film and cult classic Night of the Living Dead. More recently, the TV show The Walking Dead (based on the comic series of the same name) achieved widespread success as one of the most viewed shows on cable. In short: zombie’s are everywhere, including tattoos!
