This man’s Mexican skull tattoo is inked in the traditional Day of the Dead design, featuring a brown hat with a feather in it, orange and yellow flowers for eyes, and large red rose blossoms in the background. The skull tattoo is inked on the upper part of this man’s arm, near his shoulder, and extends down almost to his elbow.

Because the Mexican Day of the Dead is a tradition that calls for the celebration of the lives of loved ones who have passed away, many tattoos inspired by this holiday include skulls and other images of death. Mexican sugar skull tattoos can include any number of other designs that help to make the tat unique to the wearer, including flowers or other designs that perhaps represent a late loved one.
