Everything about skulls – skull designs, art, tattoos, fashion, jewelry, makeup and much much more…
The skull is one of man’s oldest and most powerful symbols. It has a long and varied history of use with multiple overlapping interpretations. Most commonly it is seen as a representation of death and mortality, but it has many other uses including: to celebrate the memory of the dead and life, as a symbol of vanity, life after death and change. The skull sometimes mean obtaining good luck or avoiding bad luck, is used as a symbol of toughness, machismo, courage, bravery or indifference to death and danger, nonconformity, free-thinking, and rebelliousness. Nowadays the skull is often used in fashion and as a pure decoration. The unique combination of “cute but bad” has been increasingly popular in recent years. It probably shares some common roots with pop surrealism. We are now seeing it used in everything from toys and dresses to wallpaper and watches.
Part of the visual appeal of a skull comes from the fact that it is so easily recognizable. The skull has no shortage of symbolic interpretations. The skull reminds us that not only do none of us live forever, but conversely that each of our lives is that much more important because of it.
The skull is no longer symbolic of anything dark or evil, but instead becomes a positive symbol that encourages us to live life to its fullest.
