Sugar skull dog tattoo

Death is seen in different ways around the world. While some people dread it because they often associate it with the emergence of all things evil, others consider it as a celebration for the life of their deceased ancestors and loved ones. And when it comes to death celebrations, one of the most unique and colorful ones can be found in Mexico. Dia de los Muertos, which means “Day of the Dead”, celebrated in conjunction with All Saints Day and All Souls Day (November 1 and 2), it’s completely different from other celebrations for the deceased as it’s a very positive and colorful one. Instead of dwelling on the death of family, they’re dwelling on the life the deceased person lived. In memory of a loved one lost, some people have themselves tattooed with a sugar skull, complete with all the colors and motifs associated with the person. This sugar skull tattoo was done by Keenan Bouchard in memory of a dog that died.
