Volume and space, heavily inked in black to give three-dimensionality to the shapes. A focus on all that is left of man: the skull.
In tattoo, this effigy is associated above all with reminders of life and death, but also time, the futility of female beauty, how all things fade. The skull is a kind of threshold beyond which we can glimpse something which goes beyond life. One of the most popular subjects in tattoo, it comes in all manner of different styles.
