Over 55 Spookily Good Ghostbusters Tattoos

0

When you’re looking for a tattoo design inspired by one of the most iconic 1980s films of all time, who you gonna call? Well, one of the artists featured below would be a good place to start. That’s right, we’ve put together a collection of super(natural) Ghostbusters tattoos.

Released back in 1984, Ghostbusters follows Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) as they help to rid New York of supernatural nasties. It was an instant hit and was followed 5 years later with a sequel, featuring the original cast.

Since then, there has been an animated series, as well as a 2016 reboot with an all-female cast. Stranger Things also paid homage (quite fittingly) to the Ghostbuster movies in the second series, with the boys donning the tan boilersuits, complete with proton packs, for Halloween.

Who You Gonna Call?

In the film, the Ghostbusters are a group of parapsychologists who operate out of disused fire station. Equipped with high-tech ghost-busting equipment, including flamethrower-inspired proton packs and their vehicle of choice, the Ecto-1, the trio turn to fighting supernatural beings after Columbia University terminates the grant for their research.

These entity-fighting misfits have built up quite the cult following and, as a result, there have been some fantastic Ghostbusters inspired tattoos, some of which you can see below.

Dr. Peter Venkman

Peter Venkman is a member of the ghostbusters team and holds a degree in parapsychology. Peter would be considered the sarcastic frontman of the team

Ray Stantz

Ray Stantz is an enthusiastic member of the Ghostbusters team. He is responsible for engineering all of the ghostbusters teams tools and electronics along with paranormal theories.

Egon Spengler

Egon is the brains of the ghostbusters team. He is responsible for the theories on their paranormal quantum sides studies along with being socially awkward with a superior intellect.

Winston Zeddemore

Winston Zeddemore is the skeptical outsider of the Ghostbusters team. He originally joined after responding to a help wanted ad.

Ecto-1 / Ectomobile

The Ghostbusters’ trusty ride is the Ectomobile, Ecto-1. Made from a 1959 Cadilac Miller-Meteor Futura Duplex, this car is fitted with a whole host of technology that the team can use to fight ghosts and ghouls.

Slimer

Arguably the most recognisable character from the Ghostbusters franchise, Slimer is a green ghost with an otherwordly appetite. In the first movie, he’s the resident ghost on the 20th floor of the Sedgewick Hotel. Loved by viewers of the film, he went on to feature in the subsequent animated series and movies – and even ended up having his own animated series; ‘Slimer! and The Real Ghostbusters‘.

Although never actually referred to as Slimer in the original film, audiences widely referred to him with this name. So, as a result, when the animated series came out in 1986, he was officially named Slimer.

Marshmallow Man

While a smiley, soft marshmallow man may not seem like something to fear, when he’s the size of a building, it’s a slightly different situation. Inspired by real-life brand mascots such as the Pillsbury Doughboy and the Michelin Man, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man appears during the climax of the first Ghostbusters movie.

Below are some more Ghostbusters fan tattoos which capture the spirit of the film:
