Sugar Skull Girl Dahlia by hooksnfangs Sugar Skull Girl Dahlia by hooksnfangs
Here's the last of the picture I'm uploading that I did during my DA hiatus.

Where I live in SoCal, I am pretty much surrounded by Mexican communities. Through learning some of the culture from friends, I also come across ART. A friend of mine who is a tattoo artist always drew designs based upon the Mexican culture. However, what she drew the most were sugar skull girls especially during time when Dia De Los Muertos was coming up. Knowing that I draw girls n such, she always wanted to see my rendition of a sugar skull girl. Since I couldn't help her set up her altar for her grandfather, I went ahead and drew one.

Yes it's a 3 year old piece that's still one of my most popular works.
