Since I seem to capture more sugar skulls than any other design, why not reserve a day just for these decorative symbols which, at their roots, have deep religious significance?
Two weeks ago, I met Ryan, who has ten tattoos.
Of that lot, he offered up this design on his left bicep, which Charlie Foos created for him at FlyRite Studios in Brooklyn.
Charlie Foos is now at Read Street Tattoo Parlour in Baltimore.
Aside from the traditional nature of the sugar skull tattoo, Ryan also loves Mexico and this design recalls that beautiful and diverse culture south of the border.
Thanks to Ryan for sharing this decorative tattoo with us on Tattoosday!
Work from Charlie Foos has appeared previously on Tattoosday here.
