Does anyone actually find clowns funny? To some, they work better as nightmarish figures in a Stephen King novel than modern day jesters. Today’s comedic sensibilities have mostly surpassed the era of clowns, leaving them only really fit for small children’s parties and circuses – because for some unexplained reason circuses are just supposed to have clowns.
Once we grow up though, and are back in the land of the familiar, clowns are best utilized as fiendish villains. You’re sure to see many menacing clowns like the ones featured in the tattoo gallery below as we draw closer to Halloween.
