I went to South Africa a few months ago to spend my 30th with my friends and family and had arranged with my younger brother to get matching skull tattoos. It was my bro’s first tattoo and I had already convinced him that skulls would be the best first tattoo to get! We also wanted to get a tattoo which represented our family and thought 3 skulls would be perfect to represent our dad, mom and each other.
We made a few phone calls and managed to book a slot at SA Hardcore Tattoo in Parkhurst. The team of guys there were very helpful and did a sterling job – cheers guys!
I recently bought this Book of Skulls from Amazon and it’s the perfect little book for any skull lovers’ coffee table. The book tells a story of the skull and how, from around the 1970′s, it has enjoyed a renaissance and emerged as one of the most recognisable symbols in today’s contemporary visual landscape. It’s over 150 pages of skull porn – from skull prints to skull sculptures and skull fonts to skull tattoos, this book has it all.
I never wanted to get a Skull Tattoo before but that was before I decided to man-the-fuck-up. Now I want to be covered in Skulls, I just don’t have enough money to do so.
I found a load of cool skull tattoos on the interweb, and in particular on Fuck Yeah Skull Tattoos, and had to share these amazing pieces of art. Also had to stop myself from posting pictures of just hot girls. Maybe next time…
