If you’ve never heard of Sugar Skull Tattoos, you’re missing out! The sugar skull is quite intense and is very popular in Mexican culture with it’s main symbol representing Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. The sugar skulls are painted and decorated with the names of the departed added to the forehead of the skull.

Sugar skull tattoos are generally quite large because they contain a lot of detail and color that is not clear in a smaller moderate sized tattoo. If you have just one sugar skull, you can have whatever size you like, but if you have more than one it generally represents the ages of the people whom you are commemorating. The smaller skulls usually represent those of children while the larger skulls are those of adults.
