We have all seen enough Zombie movies that feature reanimated corpses lumbering towards farmhouses, army bases or pubs where normal humans have sheltered themselves. Zombies are depicted as creatures oblivious to pain that do not stop even after losing limbs. It is believed that anyone who dies at the hands of a zombie returns as a zombie to kill others and turn them into zombies. Zombies find their origin in folklore, however, according to a few researches; real zombies have been spotted in Haiti. Most zombies are similar to each other in terms of their traits, however few variations exist. This essentially means that there are more than one type of zombies. Here are five basic types of zombies that have found acceptance among common folk, either through legends or through real events. Here are different types of zombies to consider for your zombie tattoos.
Haitian Vodun or Voodoo Zombie:
This is the most basic form of zombie that is basically a corpse brought back to life through supernatural means such as witchcraft.
This type of zombie is believed to be a result of humankind’s curiosity with chemicals resulting in prolonged life or hurried deaths. Rumours of experiments on reanimated dead with chemicals are believed to be the source of chemical zombies.
This type of zombie springs to life when the host organism i.e either a human or an animal gets infected by a parasitic organism such as Toxoplasma gondii or Naegleria Fowleri. Such zombies are dangerously frightening but least efficient at killing.
Type 1 Viral Zombie:
Viruses are most ancient and most potent of all micro organisms. They have the capability to survive in extreme conditions and adapt rapidly to such conditions. It is believed that a strain of Polydnavirus which is carried by some wasps has the power to create or sustain a zombie.
Type 2 Viral Zombie:
The very fact that viruses are indestructible to a very large extent and that they multiply faster than any other micro organism guides many malicious brains to nasty experiments with it. While a few may accidentally do the unwanted during experiments with viruses of plague or rabies, there are others who do so intentionally to rise the walking dead.
