Skulls have forever been associated with great pirate ships laced with black flags to ward off predators and keep people clearly afraid of them. They were once considered a symbol of death and a romantic notion of immortality that a spiritual person survives death. Skulls have also been associated with poison bottles and secret societies. Today however they are turning up in fashion more than ever. You can find them on designer toys, t-shirts, trucker hats, tattoos and of course jewelry.
It would appear that skulls do not have that scary facade that they once had since many children’s socks, shirts, shoes and even pajamas have skulls on them in today’s fashion world. Why would they be considered evil, what exactly does that teach our children when they learn about the human skull in science class?
The truth is skulls are far from evil, they are a type of style that people love to have around them just like horses or ladybugs. Skulls can actually look really awesome if worn with the right outfit and such. Skull jewelry not only consists of jewelry for a person but for other objects as well such as for a vehicle. Many people decorate their trucks with antenna skulls, gear shifter skulls, and skulls that hand down off the review mirror. Skulls can makes a person feel more youthful and even make them closer to themselves, looking at a skull gives you a better idea of what you cannot see, your own skull.
Skull jewelry comes in more than just the typical black necklace with a white skull on it; it comes in several different colors and themes. Each them is represented by a different genre of person such as the glittery pink theme. You can find a rocker theme, a princess theme and of course a heavy metal theme.
Skulls can be found in full gold or diamonds and can be worn as rings, bracelets, chokers, anklets and earrings. It does not matter what age you are, you can still get away with wearing skull jewelry, it is not immature and it a great way for free self expression.
Skulls will forever be a controversy so you can either wear what you want to wear or go with the population and believe that is immature.
In the end though, would it not be better to be who you are and who you feel you are?
