10 Cool and Colorful Watercolor Skull Tattoos

These watercolor skull tattoos come to life with bright, vivid colorful effects!

Certain imagery works perfectly with the style of watercolor tattoos - hearts, flowers, animals, and the best tattoos of all... skulls.

Skull tattoos come in many forms - black and grey is popular execution as it reflects dark themes of morbidity and death. For me, the joy of skull tattoos is being able to mix a potentially negative symbol with bright and happy-inducing color effects.

All hail the watercolor skull tattoo!
