Skull Tattoo Design Ideas

Are you looking for a tattoo idea that screams “badass” and “deep thinker” at the same time? How about a tattoo design which shows that you live by your own rules? If so, a skull tattoo is definitely the way to go!

Whether modern or traditional, skull designs are one of the most outstanding, versatile, and iconic themes for a tattoo. We have compiled this post as a guide to help you in finding the best skull tattoo designs.

But what is the meaning of a skull tattoo? Contrary to popular opinion, skull tattoo designs do not necessarily symbolize destruction and death. Sure, it might sound morbid to some people, but skull tattoos might also be cool or even funny to others. Skull tattoos can mean different things depending on the image portrayed, styling, and placement. For example, the iconic pirate skull symbolizes protection, strength, and power. On the other hand, sugar skull tattoos are often a reference to the afterlife and loss of a loved one – as per Día de Muertos (Mexican Day of the Dead). You can even blend a gnarly skull with crimson rose petals to showcase the balance of life through the contrasting images.

At Tattoo Lovers, we believe that tattoos bring out your personality, and the same goes for skull tattoo designs. Although skulls have been a popular tattoo design long before Bon Jovi or AC/DC hit the stage, they are still credible today – talk about withstanding the test of time. The best part about a skull tattoo is that you can tinker or experiment with the design to make it personal and distinctive. Feel free to splash some colors, incorporate other symbols, or use abstract designs – let it define you.

So, where do you want to place your tattoo? Or better yet, what do you wish to portray through your skull tattoo? Whatever tickles your fancy, below are some of the best skull tattoo designs for men and women to kickstart your creative engine.
