Death in Paradise: Skull Sunset Tattoos by Frankie Caraccioli

These stylized skull tattoos are rad!

I love it when a tattooist gets one style or idea, and rolls it out across a series of tattoos. These sunset skulls by Frankie Caraccioli won't disappoint.

Based at Port City Tattoo in Costa Mesa, CA, Frankie creates bold, badass tattoos in a primarily traditional style. I love trad tattoos, but also love it when old school form is mixed with something interesting and inventive. These unusual skull-shaped sunset beach tattoos are crazy, cool and clean. Hands up who wants one?! *waves*

There's so much to read into, in terms of the symbolism of these images. Death waits for us all beyond the horizon...

But it's not just about the skulls. Frankie Caraccioli also creates some of the cleanest script tattoos you've seen, as well as Japanese, black and grey and neo-traditional designs.
