The age-old question; are you a Sith supporter or a Jedi lover? Well, by the looks of this extensive list I might just be in favor of the sith!
Darth Maul was a crime lord during the reign of the Galactic Empire. He was once known as Darth Maul; the apprentice of Darth Insidious. Maul is characterized by his bedazzling appearance of crimson red skin with bulging horns out the top of his head; easily confused with Satan himself!
Darth Maul is a popular Star Wars tattoo choice and can be done in various styles and creative twists.
