Nineteen years ago today, on Sept. 4, 1993, a TV icon died.

Herve Villechaize played other roles, but as Tattoo on Fantasy Island, he made his mark. Indeed, for many viewers, Villechaize was Fantasy Island, more so than his top-billed costar, Ricardo Montalban. That's why we're watching a few of our favorite Tattoo scenes in celebration of his life.
