Memento Mori Boxes

Tonight when i stayed back in the tattoo studio I decided i would start making some kind of memento mori/ reliquary type of boxes for the little skulls i have collected over the years for drawing and sculpture purposes in college. Here is my first attempt, the skull is that of a badger and on the box ive painted a little badger in an neo-trad tattoo style. On the skull i have taken designs from the tradition of skull painting in Mexico during the day of the dead festivities! Its a bit messy but try to understand that usually i work on 6foot canvases so to paint something not even 4 inches in diameter was sooooooo hard for me!! 🙂
