Sugar skulls, most commonly seen during Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), are decorative candies made of sugar, chocolate and various other sweets. Traditionally they are given as gifts to the living or the dead to celebrate and memorialize loved ones that have passed on.
Sugar skulls also happen to make a damn cool tattoo. The sugar skull tattoo meaning is typically the same as the candy and represents a past loved one. However, as the sugar skull has grown in popularity more people have gotten sugar skull tattoos simply because they look cool.
