Dia de los Muertos may be months away but in the tattoo scene, sugar skull tattoos are here all year long. Sugar skull tattoos could have originated in Mexico but these days, you'll be able to find these ornaments (often in the form of tattoos) almost anywhere. Sugar skull tattoo designs are still one of the most popular tattoos after all this time, only trailing behind all-time favorites such as the rose and the feather. I've seen some awful sugar skull tattoos that bring shame to its roots but luckily, I found a bunch of them that brings justice to sugar skulls!
