Captain Spaulding Tattoos - Paying tribute to Sid Haig | Laky Set from Radiant Tattoo Ink


Horror fans everywhere will no doubt be deeply saddened by the unfortunate passing of Sid Haig who died at the age of 80 years old on the 21st September.  Actor Haig is best known for his role as Captain Spaulding - one of the most terrifying clowns in horror movie history, created by infamous movie maker Rob Zombie
.  Haig starred in 3 of Zombie's hit horror films - House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, and most recently, 3 From Hell, which has just been released.
