40+ Cool Skull Tattoos

The skull is arguably the most prominent image in the world of tattoos. They are also the subject of many paintings and illustrations. There are many symbolic meanings behind skulls, despite the popular misconception that skulls only represent death. The skull has been known to be a vessel of the soul as well as a containment center for ancestral wisdom. It also represents a rebirth into eternity that can only emerge from death.

Skull tattoos are popular among men and women alike. They are admired because of their cool, classic look as well as their otherworldly, sometimes morbid symbolism. Skulls are often used solely because they look good. This reason explains the amount of skull imagery present in all of society, not just with tattoos.

Skulls can be joined by other objects for dual meanings. For example, a skull and rose combination could symbolize a beautiful death or love reborn.
