Skull tattoos continue to grow in popularity, and in response to the demand, tattoo artists have been creating a large number of compelling and unique designs for those who want to go as extreme with them as they want.
For the less adventerous, you could always try out a temporary skull tattoo to see if it's what you thought it would be, and if the placement fits with what you were thinking.
I'm not quite sure what the fascination is with images of skulls as the inspiration for being tattooed, but hey, to each his own.
So, it remains to be seen if this continues to be a growing part of the tattooing culture, but by all counts it looks like it will be.
You have to admit, when you think of a skull tattoo, a flower tattoo just doesn't seem to have much zip to it. Still, I've seen a few pretty good ones, but that's off the topic of this post. I'm starting to ramble on too much.
Anyway, I would try a temporary tattoo in the case of a skull, as it carries something with it you really want to be sure is what you want to be communicated for the rest of your life on your body. You know, buyers' remorse and that type of thing.
