Betty Mexican Skull Tattoo by someofthathomegrown Betty Mexican Skull Tattoo by someofthathomegrown
This is the female half of a pair of mexican skulls.

I love the traditional mexican skulls, they are amazing. This one I drew with a bit of a Rockabilly flavor to it just to make things interesting.

enjoy!



PLEASE DON'T STEAL MY ART: This is my art, it came from the creative part of my mind, a very personal place. I chose to let you in to my brain by showing you some of my art. If you like it, please, don't steal it, recreate it, or make products with it. Thanks!

Oh my goodness. Like a few others - I would greatly appriceate it if you would allow me to use this, the russian and the Gonzo skulls to fill in a small area of my leg sleeve I'm trying to finish - this is simply amazing!!! Please say yes? Even just this one? I'm looking for traditional style sugar skulls - and I simply cannot sketch one out I'm happy with. These however -They're Beautious!!! I can't wait to see more!!

I'll glaly post one up as soon as it's done!! I'm excited! You're Gonzo skull also gave me an idea, so if it happens you'll get credit for the inspiration for that as well! I didn't realize till I actually clicked on it it was a comission, so I can't be greedy and take what someone else paid for - but I am going to work off it! You made my Night! cheers!! <3

I hate to be a copier but I saw this on google as I am looking for mexican(ish) skull tattoo to cover my hideous stretch marks on my hips. This an your greaser would be so utterly fantastic to put on my hips and I would simply adore you if you gave me permission. :)

Hi,
just a question, i love the design of your skull and would like to use it to transform it a little and get it tattooed on each feet, male on left one and female on right one by the tattooist who works in my shop.
You think it could be possible?

Thanks Bye

What do you think about maybe an item that pretains more to a woman? Like with the male, the straight razor was really appropriate. Maybe roses? and again the whole depth thing i said about the male skull. I do like this one more than the male, the hair and the scarf..really cool. This one is really solid too.
