Netflix’s newest show, Stranger Things, has inspired lots of dudes to get show-inspired tattoos. From Eleven’s “011” ink, to the Will-powered Christmas lights that spell words, there are endless elements from the series to choose from.
Not all fan tattoos are uncool to get, as the series pays throwback homage to a ton of iconic moments from the 1980s.
The show, itself, pays tribute to the surge of horror movies during the era and but steers clear of regurgitating the nostalgia. It seamlessly reinvents the feeling while introducing new relics for you to add to your arsenal and designing your tattoo will be a breeze since the show dips and dives into many places. It will inspire you to employ the art of storytelling via ink — an art the show handles beautifully through the myriad of pop culture touchstones.
Rather than overusing those critical hallmarks and making the series too niche (i.e.; your tattoo is an obvious tribute), a Stranger tattoo, too, like the series, can be effortlessly adopted into any existing body art. Because any style or design will work, it’s easy to see why so many guys are flocking to get this “geek” ink!
Like any true fan of the culture, you’re encouraged to proclaim your love for show whichever way you want, but a tattoo will allow you to do so with flair. A great tribute tattoo will also be one you will wear like a badge of honor.
