Halloween traditionally falls on the 31st of October. It has a long history dating back to the ancient Celtic Samhain festival when people wore costumes and lit bonfires to ward off ghosts. Then, Pope Gregory III designated the first of November as All Saints Day, so the night before became known as All Hallows Eve, later evolving into ‘Halloween’. Dressing up has become a major part of this celebration with people going full-out, putting on fake tattoos and elaborate outfits to mimic their favourite characters.

What sort of designs should you look for? Common Halloween motifs include pumpkins, bones, skulls, skeletons and spider webs which all make for awesome temporary tattoos.

If you’re looking for something fierce, perhaps to complement a fearsome costume, here are a few skull designs ranging from simple to intricately detailed.
