Day of the Dead Artwork!

Day of the Dead is half a year away and I am just too excited about the festivities for 2011 that I can't contain myself! Today's post is dedicated to Day of the Dead artwork! Me encanta dia de los muertos!

Primera, I find it appropriate to appreciate (how's that for alliteration?) how much DotD has been assimilated into tattoo culture. About a month ago, I was in the waiting room of a tattoo parlor (to have my nose ring changed) and this guy showed me some of his tattoo magazines and I was surprised to see how many sugar skulls were in there. He proceeded to explain that it was a popular theme for tattoos over the past few years:

& that's it! Commence the countdown!
