Getting Inked? Read On.

A lot goes on into a tattoo. There’s the thought process, the decision to get it done, the budget, the hours of pain, the tattoo artist’s skill, and living with a beautiful art on your skin for the rest of your life. People who’ve gotten inked or who want to get inked know this or need to know this, so we’ve created a community where they can read everything they need to know about tattoos.

Named after our similar skull and sword tattoos, The Skull and Sword features news, information, and galleries related to tattoo art in all forms. If you’re looking for inspiration or the meaning behind a foreign tattooing culture, chances are, you’ll find what you’re looking for on our website.
