Do Skull Tattoos have a Meaning of any real Substance?

Skull tattoos have been growing in popularity of late and there's little wonder why, they look really cool and there's a huge range of styles you can choose. Sugar skulls are more popular for girls, with men adopting the more traditional looking skull designs.

 

Skull tattoos can symbolise life and death, and more specifically, a coming to terms with death philosophy. A reminder to celebrate life whilst it is there. Skulls can also represent a rebellion, evil and a side to a person that knows no fear.

 

We've done our best to find some examples of some designs which work, and some that don't so you can make sure your new skull tattoo totally rocks by the time you've chosen a style that you like!

Takeaway Tips

Anchor tattoos are a super cute style for girls.

 

Thin linework looks fab! Thick not so much (for me personally).

 

Behind your ear, wrist and ankle seem to be some of the most popular placements.
