Colorful skull tattoo with dagger and cherry blossom

This man’s skull tattoo on his upper arm is very colorful and features a number of different designs, including a dagger, cherry blossom flowers and petals floating around the skull, and a banner tat reads “You Can’t Save Me.” This particular skull tattoo appears to have a negative meaning, particularly because of the phrase written on the banner.

The cherry blossom is highly regarded in Asian cultures and typically represents beauty. However, because cherry blossom trees are vulnerable and die quickly, tattoos with cherry blossoms often symbolize mortality. Taking that meaning along with the skull, the dagger and the “You Can’t Save Me” message, it’s easy to assume that this skull tattoo represents the wearer’s recognition of the fact that you can’t leave this world alive.
