This particular tree tattoo has been labeled the Tree of Life. While I’m not sure about the meaning of the symbols in the upper branches, I do find it interesting that the roots of this tree find themselves growing through and around a bunch of skulls. I’m not sure if this is meant to represent the fact that life is basically built on the death of others that have come before. If so, that is a very interesting and thought provoking statement. The lines in this black and gray piece are really clean and crisp. The upper portion of the tree is a bit darker and more bold that the lower portions, adding a bit more dimension to the tree.
