The Lakers star’s love of the Nightmare on Elm Street film series goes way beyond a Halloween costume.

The bottom portion of the tattoo depicts Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th series. On the top left half, LeBron has a Freddy Krueger tattoo.

He also has an image of Michael Myers from the Halloween film series.

James called them “the big 3” on his Instagram.

LeBron is a huge lover of horror films in general

LeBron is a well-known lover of horror films.

He has spoken about his affinity for scary films in the past.

In 2017 he spoke to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin about playing on Friday 13th: “But I’m a huge horror fan. I love horror movies. Obviously Friday the 13th being Jason Vorhees day, I think it’s cool.

“I remember as a kid on Friday the 13th right when I got home from school, my mother and I we would just watch horror movie after horror movie after horror movie.

“It’s crazy because now my kids love horror movies too. My two boys love them. When I come home they be wanting to watch horror movies. But no superstitions besides just having a great respect for some of the great slashers of all time, some of the greatest ones of all time. And Freddy (Krueger), Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees and Chucky and a couple more.”
