When it comes to Skulls, I think the first thing you think of is death. Because most of the legends and stories related to Skulls in traditional culture have a terrible, gloomy and thrilling atmosphere, which makes people stand on end. However, in many tattoo patterns, skull elements are common. I believe many people must be curious. Skull is so terrible, why does it become a popular tattoo theme?
In Buddhist Esoteric Buddhism, most of the statues of King Kong, Ming Wang and Dharma protector have Skull decorations, some wear Skull crowns and some wear Skull necklaces. At first glance, the skull is scary and gloomy. It is a skeleton without flesh and blood. In fact, it shows people that the final result of people is just a white bone, suggesting that we give up our persistence and seek liberation.
Octopus is very popular in tattoos, and the combination of octopus and skull is very common. I collected a lot of Octopus skull tattoos here, hoping to give you inspiration.
