Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) Tattoos Gallery

Posted on 26 September 2012 by Karen L. Hudson

One of my favorite times of year is the fall season, and for three main reasons: colorful leaves, Halloween, and The Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). While I admit that I don’t observe the traditions that go along with the Catholic holiday, I do love the imagery that comes from it! The flowers, the sugar skulls, the beautifully dressed skeletons, and the alters laden with burning candles. It really is a beautiful celebration, and many people, like myself, choose to show their appreciation for it in ink. Here are some of the best Day of the Dead tattoos you’ll find anywhere.
