25 Sick And Spectacular Skull Tattoos

Xavier in Tattoo Ideas

No tattoo list won't be complete without the skull tattoo. It's back to basics with the good ol' skull and tasteful modern spins!

Skulls are part of the very staple design in tattoos. It's been around for years. At least a decade ago, you couldn't say the word tattoo without thinking about crossbones and skulls you thought were the definition of badass back then. Flaming skulls, pirate skulls, trad skulls, semi-realistic skulls... Skulls are everything in tattoos the same way tattoos can't lose roses. As overused and common skulls are, we like to think of them as timeless and classic. The artists we have here continue to prove that you can never go wrong with good skulls and fresh spins.

A rather tech-inspired skull design that will have you thinking of binary codes and anything IT-related.
