Best Movie Tattoos

Flavorpill has posted an interesting list of the best cinematic tattoos. Think Jack Straw in Pirates, the knuckle tattoos of Harry Powell’s Love and Hate, Night of the Hunter and the fantastic Dragon tattoo from the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Here is the intro. Click on the link above for them all.

When presenting a character in a film, directors and costume designers think very carefully about every last detail: what color shirt, what brand of shoes, how mussed the hair. Maybe this is why some of the coolest and most apt tattoos we’ve ever seen have popped up in movies, from the original knuckle tattoos to this year’s hottest movie sensation (hint: dragons). From the silly to the terrifying, the ominous to the controversial, click through to see our ten favorite tattoos on film, and since we know there are hundreds of great ones out there, be sure to let us know if we’ve missed any of your own favorites in the comments.

I am in my schools production of Pirates of Penzance, and I am a daughter in the courus.
However, I am having a trouble finding a costume. Besides
ebay and amazon, does anyone know a website that would have costumes that would fit this era (late 1800s)
that don't cost too much money (up to $50). My mom said she would pay $60 actually (it would be my holloween costume too).
