I got it done at eye of the lotus in Edmonton by an artist named Seven. It took 8 hours to do but I love it.
It have 3 skulls wrapped in the roots of a dead-looking tree.
No real meaning behind this tattoo, but there doesnt really need to be.
You're right, there doesn't need to be any deep meaning behind it it speaks for itself. A wonderfully macabre piece, very well done. I love it (black and grey happens to be my favorite). I hope I can do that some day.
