Skull tattoo designs are as varied as the people who get them. Some are elaborate, featuring realistic shading in the bones, teeth, and hollows, and others are more whimsical, like Day of the Dead sugar skull tattoo designs or cartoonish skeleton tattoos. This variety means every tattoo is as unique as the wearer and no two skull tattoos are exactly alike. Whether you're looking for something big and bold or a little more understated, check out this list of some popular skull tattoo designs to help you decide!
