Combining the skull tattoo with the clown motif can produce a startling and visually appealing piece of body art. While the clown can embody a self deprecation and an appreciation for humor the skull is by contrast exactly the opposite. One look at a skull and we can see death staring at us from those big empty sockets. It’s not surprising then that the skull is known all over the world as a symbol of death. In many cultures, it is held up as a reminder of our own mortality. In Christian art and culture, the skull has been seen as a symbol of eternity, repentance, and human vanity. In Buddhism and Hinduism, skulls can be seen in their religious art. The Buddhist Lord of the Dead, Yama, has five skulls around his head, signifying the conquest of anger, greed, pride, envy and ignorance. Kali, the Hindu Goddess of Death wears a necklace of skulls. Thus, is can be interpreted that the skull tattoo depicted in the picture can be seen as laughing in the face of death or sneering at human faults and sins. It can also be a representation of the duality of mankind in general.
This is a very cool skull tattoo. Two skulls representing the faces of drama and comedy in life is rather creative. These two faces are often used in connection with Mardi Gras and I like the idea of making them skulls. Whoever had this idea for a skull tattoo was really thinking and should keep up the good work.
