Out for Blood is the debut solo album from guitarist/vocalist Lita Ford, formerly of the band The Runaways.

The original cover art for this album featured Lita standing in front of a spiderweb holding a broken blood-spurting guitar. It was later replaced with a cover of Lita standing in front of a purple background with her guitar.

The album's artwork saw Ford adopting a very heavy metal-inspired image, an image she would maintain for much of the next decade.

The track "Die for Me Only (Black Widow)" is not to be confused for the track "Black Widow" from Ford's 1991 album Dangerous Curves.
