Hatchet man tattoos are mostly seen around Insane Clown Posse fans aka the Juggalos.
This tattoo of a running man with dreadlocks holding a hatchet was first used as a logo for Psychopathic Records .
So what does the hatchetman tattoo mean ?
This tattoo mostly represents the juggalo movement and subcultures.
The meaning behind the tattoo is at best symbolic, but it can be seen as having various meanings. It stands for creativity, rebellion against authority figures, personal freedom, and individualism among other things.
