I chose to draw sugar skulls and a rose in order to show my family's heritage. They are symbols of "El D’a de los Muertos" (or The Day of the Dead). This holiday intrigued me because it is meant for families to gather and pray for friends or family members who have passed away. The reason I chose to use the color red is because to me that color has always represented death and love. I drew this in a detailed tattoo style and kept a simple color scheme in order to show that deep connection between the two topics.
