Centipede Tattoos:

Centipedes make great tattoos because of the versatility in their shape. They can be long and straight or wrap around other existing tattoos.

Centipedes are creepy enough on their own but they can be made even more terrifying by using skulls or heads to make up the body.

People get centipedes tattooed on them in a number of styles; mainly old school, black work, Japanese, or neo-traditional.

Many people choose centipedes as a gap filler due to their shape, and they can also be done quite small or as a huge statement piece.
