John Carpenter's

 

THE THING TATTOOS
The Ultimate Tribute to the Ultimate Film

      Yes, some fans out there have chosen to permanently ink their bodies in honor of their favorite film. Are you thinking of getting a tattoo in anyway related to the film THE THING? Do you know of anyone who has a Thing-related tattoo? Let us know! We'd love to have it for our THE THING Fan Tattoos page!!

TERRY CHARTIER
Terry tells us: 'I'd like to share my tattoo pic with you. I'm a chick who loves terrific horror story telling. I love the images Carpenter and others created. Drew Struzan poster is an inspiration for my tattoo. My terrific horror ink master Eddie tweaked it because my favorite part in the Thing is the detached head walks off. Palmer says, "You've got to be..."'

About Eddie, she tells us: 'Eddie Bonacore, Owner of EB Tattoo in East Stroudsburg, PA. Eddie is the one who did this fantastic skin art. The Struzan poster was his inspiration. Originally I wanted the (Norris) spider done in black. Eddie showed me the drawing I was absolutely stunned by the interpretation of the poster combo. It's priceless. Side note: I got this piece on Kurt Russell's birthday. I really didn't think anything of it. I'm a writer and even made one of my characters go see THE THING. I absolutely think it is one of the most amazing movies and holds up today.'

ALEX (THE BUTTERMAN) WHEILL - Quebec, Canada

     Butterman's tattoo is a direct translation of "The Thing" into Cantonese. He had it inked in August of 2001. Here's Alex's thoughts on his THE THING tattoo and a couple of pictures. 

     "THE THING has made such an impact on my life that no amount of collecting would do it justice, since after I die, the collectibles just become other people's property. Having a tattoo means that I am willing to make a life-long commitment to wearing it proudly, and when I die, THE THING will still be with me...!!"
