Day of the Dead Skull Tattoos History:


The symbol of the skull has been an integral part of the Day of the Dead, since it originated during the Aztec period. The Aztecs kept their enemies skulls as a sign of victory. The skull of a friend or loved one was preserved, and used during the festival, to symbolize their presence, for it was believed that the dead would visit the living on that day. The practice of keeping actual human skulls, died out with the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadors. But the skull plays a major role in the festival, albeit through representation.

Sleeve Tattoos for Girls:

Commonly known as arm tattoos, sleeve tattoos are a rage among youth today. Specially girls, mainly because these tattoos can be flaunted when you wish to and easily hidden when you have grabbed enough attention! But what are these tattoos? Well, these are tattoos that are done on the arm or the leg. There are three types of sleeve tattoos; full, half, and quarter. These names signify the area each of these tattoos cover. E.g. full sleeve tattoos are made from shoulder to the wrists or thigh to ankle. Half sleeves cover the half hand, i.e. from shoulder to elbow or from the elbow to the wrist. If done on the leg, it covers the half portion of the leg i.e. from thigh to the knee, knee to ankle. Quarter sleeve tattoos are done from shoulder to bicep.

Tribal Maori Half Sleeve Tattoos:

 

Tribal tattoos are by far the most popular choice and understandably so. Their geometric nature means that they look great when wrapped around curved surfaces such as your shoulder. Imagine doing that with a photo realistic tattoo - it would just look warped!
Maori and Polynesian style tattoos are the most popular in the tribal genre for this location.
