Skull Tattoo Designs

Skull Tattoo Designs are among the most eye catching choice for a tattoo. It's a bold icon that is macabre and morbid. Among different cultures, skulls have different meanings. In Mexican culture, we see the sugar skull quite a lot. This particular icon is associated with Dia de los Muertos, or The Day of the Dead. It's a celebration of passed loved ones, but it is not a sad holiday, but colorful and fun. In most Western cultures, the skull means with death, evil and negativity. No matter what culture, the skull is a part of being human. We all have a skull inside of our heads! The skull can be used in many different styles and incorporated into many different designs. It can be creepy and dark or feminine and light. It can be bold and graphic and modern, or can be created in an old school tattoo similar to something a sailor might have gotten in a different time. Skull tattoo designs are the perfect way to express one's personality onto skin.
