Skulls are the basic souls of life. They are ancestral wisdom. Symbolizing death, they also show a lot of gratitude to the dead. Today skulls are a mainstay of fashion and trendy attributions. Skulls are used symbolically for many things. The most common thing is mortality and death. Other skull symbols are strength, protection, power, overcoming a tough time, death, and a past life. With a growing fascination to stick to past traditions, such tattoos are becoming increasingly popular. They not only imbibe a lot of belief but also a faith in the existence of a power.
Skull tattoos today are a fad and they resemble something negative, Gothic and might not always mean what they depict. The meaning that a skull image shows is as strong as the text behind it. Every person can choose to have any kind of skull tattooed on the body. A tattoo of this nature might not really be meaningful but can be just had for the sake of it. With the fad for tattoos catching up in leaps and bounds, it is not surprising that skull tattoos have a lot of value and meaning. They depict an attachment to the past and to spirited presence of the unknown. Let us see some of such tattoos and what they represent.
