Meaning of Skull Tattoos

Skull tattoo designs signify that a person accepts his own mortality. Many people resonate with the fact that everyone would die one day, so it is important to live life to the fullest. Skull tattoos are also related to this thought. However, the meaning of skull tattoo mainly depends on how the skull is used in the tattoo art. You might have come across skulls with crossbones which symbolizes living life with own set of rules i.e. depicting the love for pirates or freedom. Another example for a different meaning you can take is that of ‘Mexican skull tattoos’. Mexicans have ‘Day of the Dead’ forming a significant part of their culture when women gather to make sugar skulls or skull candies. Sugar skull tattoos are by far the most popular skull tattoos.

Meaning of Skull and Rose Tattoo

You would often come across a combo of rose and skull tattoo designs. ‘Rose’ symbolizes love, rather ‘deep love’. When ‘rose’, ‘cross’ or ‘name’ combines with a ‘skull’ in the tattoo, it definitely adds a dimension and deeper meaning to it. Skull and rose tattoo stand for the thought that ‘love your life as mortality is a certain thing’.
