Hi, recently I've been getting more people looking for Tattoos with meaning so I decided to put this banner below. The skull has been a favourite amongst tattoo wearers for years, but now the sugar skull has allowed for a new breed of artwork.
For as long as tattoos have been around one of the most common images has to be the Skull Tattoo. Though the skull is commonly used as an age old warning for death and danger, it has a more profound meaning in the world of tattoos.
In the old days skulls would be seen as a morbid or scary tattoo but the sugar skull is much more than that. This stems from our own fascination of stripping away the layers of our own portrait until what you are left with is the hard gritty reality that even though it may be scary it is the foundation on which we build our beliefs and values, just as our own skeleton gives shape and structure to our external looks. The skull can be symbolic of the mental victory over the opponent, his body wasted and decayed after he has been defeated, thus lending courage to the fighter and building up his confidence. Large overbearing skulls used for intimidation or small clusters of them to symbolize the forgotten and wasted, there are a number of ways in which you can use it, meaning the Skull Tattoo is one of the most inter-changeable and diverse tattoos that one could have. Skull tattoo designs are a varied lot that run the entire spectrum of tattoo styles and, these days, are often incorporated into designs where you might not expect them. As time has passed the sugar skull tattoo has adapted several new meanings and is now common with men and women. A model of a skull would be decorated in bright colors and would be lined with chocolate, candy and other sugary treats. From the old hand tapped tattoos in the east to the modern inked streets of the west, the skull tattoo conveys one of the most basic human fears- Death.


While an adverse affect is had on the opponent who sees his own defeat in the deaths head mark. Not only are they in the memory, they are remembered for bringing a beautiful persona to the world.
Yet as we look into what drives people to mark their bodies with this macabre imagery we find that the Skull Tattoo has a deeper symbolism than we originally anticipated. The constant reminder of your own pending death drives one to live each day to the fullest. Yet despite the wide variety of tattoo styles available, almost every style seems to use a skull design in some way, shape, or form.
They took something that is commonly associated with death and decorated it with all these things, thus giving it a new lease on life. The skull, which is associated with death more than anything else, is tattooed with vibrant colours of the wearers choice.
It reminds us that though we are not invincible, we are also not as fragile as we sometimes believe. Or maybe it plays into the desire to be somewhat intimidating, or cooler-than-you, which for some may be a reason for getting tattooed in the first place. This example (by Josh Autrey of Salvation Tattoo Gallery, Richmond, VA) is more of a neo-traditional style, but in terms of a skull tattoo, you couldn’t ask for anything more upfront. Traditional American style tattoos are still around and it’s an easy to recognize aesthetic. Devil’s in the details, huh?A Different Kind of Skull Tattoo DesignThis one stands out as being noticeably different from the others.


I mean, sure, these tattoos are all unique– but this is something that would definitely stand out in a line-up.
A take on the American Traditional style of tattooing, this piece (another Josh Autrey piece– damn, does this guy love his skulls!) A¬†utilizes bright colors and bold lines. We’re inclined to believe that, at least at first glance, this tattoo is giving a nod to the ol’ poison apple (apple + skull = poison apple, right?
How about a teal-ish alien skull tattoo design in colors so bright they’ll make your eyes bleed?
The meaning of skulls in works of art, including tattoos, can depend on context, the wearer, both, or neither. For example, in Western art styles (think Europe and the Americas) the skull has a negative connotation–typically signifying death or evil. It’s a foreboding symbol and one that, in general, repels the viewer while at the same time serving as a source of fascination. In general, Eastern cultures are less repelled by the thought of death and the idea, as well as the imagery of the skull, is more readily embraced.
