Skull Tattoo Art

Death head images have been a motif used in a lot of classic art, denoting the fact that time passes and we all die. Think of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations – complete with decorative sugar skeletons and skull cookies!

Skulls are a reminder to many about their own mortality. A skull tattoo can be a reminder to live life to its fullest because it will ultimately end.

For others, the skull represents their spiritual belief in a life after death. Many religious works of art use skulls to do just that, and tattoo art can do the same.

Skull designs come in all shapes and sizes and some are surprisingly attractive. After all, another reason why the skull image is so popular is that its dramatic lines lend themselves well to art.

Custom skull tattoos have become so popular that the art behind them has evolved significantly. Extremely elaborate scenes involving many skulls are possible, as are painstaking details that bring the skull to life. For women, a popular skull design is a pink skull with a bow perched on top.
