golly, I feel kind of bad for the artist with all the downer vibe here.

hmm. I like candy! let's just get that out there first. Oh! they did a nice job with the negative space on the lettering, so there's that. and certainly used up a lot of space on the shirt, nicely filling in all the way over to the sides, and all the way to the corners of the screen. I can't tell you how many shirts forget that they have a complete big rectangle that can be filled in!

How did this get approved? So ugly I had to look away.

So I take it I'm the only one that has this identical tattoo on their back?

I'd probably buy it and all, but I can't have the same thing on the front and back... that would be ugly...

Wow, judging from the highlighted states it looks like this shirt will be stylish in West Virginia. Enjoy mountaineers! I believe I'll pass.

Agree. Subject-matter wise, the shirt's a wash for me to begin with, but the overall design just doesn't sit quite right. Seems like there's a lot of extra stuff that isn't adding anything to the overall image, and it does feel really rigid and blocky.

Cute concept, though.

Sugar skulls, or calaveras, are ornamental & colorful skulls related to the Dia de los Muertos celebration/concept. You can look into their significance more if you want to, but all you really "need" to know is that they are frequently the basis of tattoos (hence the write-up).

Otherwise, the explanation is that he made a "sugar skull" out of sugary things. Not a lot more to read into it, afaik.

I like it. I like the colors, I like how the font is (for once) appealing, and I like how from far away it has a sort of Native American look to it. I think it's a refreshing choice and piece.

Sorry to all the haters, but I love sugar skulls and I love cupcakes, and if I ever got a tattoo it would probably be a sugar skull, so most def in for one.

I think I might have to avoid the reckoning page for the next week and a half just so I don't have to look at this ever again. Yes, it's that ugly.

My thoughts^^! I like it! Candy? Yum! Sugar skulls? Cools and yummy looking, but you'll break you're teeth, and they're really not meant to be eaten. Use of space and imagination? Great!
Bought. Luv you Johnny Zito!

It would take a brave soul to wear this shirt. I like the concept but the execution makes me twitch. Much like that much sugar would.

I can't see the "skull" part of the design. Maybe the symmetry is throwing me off but it just looks like random (yet symetrical) floating candy. I'm flipping between candy skulls and this design and I just don't see it. Am I the only one?

This shirt is unattractive and I would not buy anything like it. Please let those who would search through stores for items like this, instead of offering them to the wrong crowd here.

I have been staring at this on and off all day like it is a magic eye and I have not been able to see the skull either. I do however see the clown in the cupcake and while I am not normally afraid of clowns, after seeing that image, I can completely understand why people are.

Isn't the front page emphasis on "tattoos" missing the bigger picture?

During Dia de los Muertos (Nov 1-2), actual Sugar Skulls along with candy and food/beverage favorites of the deceased are left at the gravesides of loved ones who have passed on. Sometimes elaborate altars are created and filled with art, and the sugar skulls are a staple of that.

Tattoos are only a small element to the art and celebration. The source is much more compelling.
