Default Sugar skull girl reference pics

I'm looking for reference pics for my next tattoo. I've exhausted pin interest and google images.

Can anyone recommend anywhere else or anyone in particulars insta?

Thanks

Try searching Day of the Dead Photography (or Día de los Muertos).

Sugar skull usually refers to the candy or clay decorations that look like decorated skulls. The girls wearing make up like you are looking for is a costume worn during the Day of the Dead holiday celebration, but the makeup is not called a sugar skull.

Or, you can just find an image of the lady you want, and then have the artist draw on the decorations. This is usually how I've seen it done and it's how I'd probably do it. That way I could pick the exact face i want, the makeup is easy to add to any picture.

Yeah, great advice. It’s the same way they do those clown girl tattoos that are very popular.

Thanks for the advice.

I'm really struggling for inspiration with this one. I might have a rethink.

I'm so tired of looking at these pics I'm not sure if I still want this tattoo.

I think this one would fit the dark theme of my sleeve and Jordan's style.

Personally I like the dark theme of this one, but I'm not keen on her face. Can't put my finger on it but looks too long or manly or something. For me a day of the dead, Sant Muerte should be very pretty, but evil inside. Maybe find a better face, and get the artist to do the same style face paint.

A very experienced and knowledgeable artist once gave me this sage advice: The first rule for getting a lady's face tattooed on your body is that she's gotta be hot.

I was thinking the same thing. I like the colours but she's not only ugly, she's scary as ****.

I started looking at dark images in general now, rather than just day of the dead.

Definitley has to be a hot girl I agree.

I'm booked in on the 16th.

I like this but the pic isn't very clear unfortunately.
