Dia de los muertos, aka Day of the Dead, images have recently become very popular in mainstream culture and tattooing. As much of tattoo art has to do with memorial/tribute/remembrance, dia de los muertos falls right into that category as it has much about celebrating the dead as it is to continue living.
[Day of the Dead style are portrayed as skeletons; this is a way to accept that they are no longer among the living in the flesh. As a reminder that they are still alive in spirit…]
[the oni tattoo is very popular japanese image…]
[oni is a fearsome supernatural creature. They have been described variously as guardians of Buddhist hell, demons who act as torturers there, pranksters, devourers of human victims, hunters of sinners, and bringers of disease and epidemics.]
some cover-up action going on here – we all know someone who needs to get rid of that old ‘ex’ tattoo 😉
