Some people love to embellish their bodies with skeletons, while some prefer tattoos that use one specific body part-mostly the skull. You can occasionally see skeletal hands, femur, or other negligible body parts though. If you are looking for a big ornate design, the full skeleton is superior, but on smaller body parts probably a skull fits the most. The skull tattoo is an emerging type of tattoo nowadays.
While in the past older people chose skulls as body decoration, today rather the younger generation is eager to get a skull or skeleton tattoo.
