So today I will be showing you "how to draw a sugar skull tattoo", step by step. As I mentioned before, a sugar skull is a design that is used in a celebration for a holiday in Mexico known as ‘Day of the Dead’. This is a real holiday that is celebrated for two cold days on November 1st and 2nd. It’s basically a time where the people of central and southern Mexico can honor their loved ones that have passed away. So what are sugar skulls used for? Well, sugar skulls are made to give as an offering to the living, as well as the dead.
