SKULL TATTOOS

Skull tattoos may very well be one of the most common imagery in tattooing. A symbol of mortality, the skull is an extremely versatile tattoo option. Skull tattoos are often combined with other design elements whether it be a snake, rose or sunglasses. The skull is also a very popular choice as part of a large scale piece such as sleeves and backpieces.

We are forever tied to life, death and mortality, and so the imagery of the skull can be seen in every culture as well as every tattoo style from Traditional American to Japanese. We put together 21 examples of skull tattoos rendered by the artists at Kings Avenue Tattoo. You can follow this link for examples of the water skull tattoo.
