***Skull Tattoos***
Customers often ask ‘what can I put here?’ And often the response from the tattoo artist (when dealing with a Japanese piece) will be to fill it with background. And sometimes there’s a bit of a stand off where the customer is looking at subjects and spaces in isolation and is trying to avoid any “boring bits”, while the artist is thinking in terms of the whole piece, and avoiding having too many detailed subjects competing for the foreground.
In this situation, I often suggest a skull as a good option. They can be complimentary to a main subject without dominating, similar to traditional pairings of  particular flowers with particular subjects (eg peonies with a shi shi or foodog). And because they’re open in parts and don’t have to be highly detailed, they don’t have to push for the front. But most importantly, skulls have always kicked ass in all forms of tattooing.
