There’s no doubt about it, skulls are cool and they’re particularly popular in the world of logos. For decades, skulls have been incorporated into logos, especially for branding rock bands, biker clubs, tattoo studios, clothing stores, liquor brands, and video games. While skulls may be spooky to some they’re also seen as fun and festive by many. They are old symbols of representing death, mortality as well as recognizing, honoring and mourning the dead.
