The ultimate design to celebrate death. These skulls are associated with The Day of Death (Dia de Los Muertos) in Mexico. These skulls are used to pay respect to lost loved ones. They are beautifully decorated with patterns and bright colours. My interpretation below I have used floral patterns over the skull.
Though I do not believe in tarot cards I will admit to loving the designs and ideas behind them. The 13th card in a traditional deck the Skull/Skeleton is a symbol of change and transformation. I have been inspired by a few of the tarot cards though one of my favourite cards is The Lovers. This T-shirt below is the Lovers but as skeletons embracing each other.
Skull and crossbones when I think of these, I always think pirates. The symbol is an ancient one from medieval times associated with Danse Macabre (The Dance of Death) I only mention this because that sound metal as hell. It then became associated with piracy. Below this skull and crossbones t-shirt reminded me very much of piracy and the dead souls.
I love floral skulls, something about the idea of death and delicate beauty fascinates me. If I had to pick a subject that I have draw the most over the years, it would have to be this. I have collated a few of my recent favourites!
