Sugar skull tattoo with roses and cross

This sugar skull tattoo is rather large and is intricately designed, which makes it especially interesting. The skull is inked in blue and green hues, with a bright yellow around the eyes, nose and mouth. The skull has a red cross in the middle of its forehead and red roses inside of its eyes and around the outside of the skull. Below the skull are the letters “RCL.”

Skull tattoos are very common tattoo designs, but sugar skulls are meant to represent something very specific. In Mexican culture, the Day of the Dead is a holiday used to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed away, and the sugar skull is a very common symbol of that particular holiday. For this reason, sugar skull tattoos for men and girls have become very popular tattoo designs.
