Dungeons and Dragons, 80’s hits, and questionable hairstyles; Stranger Things is a blast from the past which perfectly blends childhood antics with impending doom. But what’s it all about?
Stranger Things is a Netflix original series, first released in 2016, which became an instant classic. In homage to iconic 80s movies, the story follows a group of youngsters; Mike, Will, Dustin, Lucas, and Eleven as they take on evil beings from another dimension.
Three seasons on, and with a fourth season in the pipeline, the show has amassed an army of loyal fans.
Whether it’s the fantastic writing, talented actors, the huge nostalgia factor or, most likely, a combination of all of the above, the series has a remained a firm-favourite with viewers since its release a few years ago.
Below, we have put together a collection of some of the very best Stranger Things tattoos on the internet, as well as given a bit more information on some of the most important characters in this series. (Beware: there are some minor spoilers below)
Eleven is the gang’s secret weapon in fighting off the dark forces plaguing the town of Hawkins. When we first meet Eleven, she’s recently escaped from a local laboratory. She has a shaved head, is wearing a hospital gown and has no understanding of normal society.
Throughout Stranger Things, we watch as she gets a grasp on what it means to be a regular kid, as well as begin to understand her hidden but powerful abilities.
The Rest Of The Gang
Much like the countless 80s classics that the show takes inspiration from, Stranger Things is centred around a fearless but lovable group of kids who take it upon themselves to clean up the town’s supernatural mess.
When one of them, a boy named Will Byers, goes missing in ‘the upside-down’, the group set out to save their friend.
Jim Hopper is the Chief of Police in Hawkins. And while his methods aren’t always by-the-book, his heart is often in the right place. With no family of her own after escaping the laboratory, Hopper takes Eleven under his wing and the pair form an unconventional but heart-warming father-daughter relationship.
The demogorgon is the name given to the first type of creature that the kids encounter from the upside down. The name for this monster is taken from the group’s love of Dungeons & Dragons, which often plays a role (excuse the pun) in their perception of what’s going on around them.
