The fox is a universal symbol of slyness and mischief. He is also recognized as being cunning, intelligent, and resourceful. This lively animal gets an instant upgrade when his mystery in unveiled- literally- as a skull tattoo.
Fox lore has existed for generations, and the fox has become a popular personality in fables, fairytales, and stories.
Often depicted as untrustworthy or sneaky, the fox has retained his position as a beloved villain for centuries. Not to be constrained to one simple stereotype, the fox has also been known to show a more gallant side of his personality; one where he is courageous, quick-witted, and spectacularly humorous. A fox tattoo will almost certainly signal his owner’s mischievous yet lovable nature.
A representation of a fox’s skull may run parallel to the longstanding notions associated with foxes, or it may imply a different, even sinister meaning altogether. Not one to be crossed, the fox is a fearsome enemy when he is threatened by other animals, and frequently outsmarts poachers in his tall-tales.
While a man sporting a fox tattoo may seek to show off the darker side to his naughtiness, a fox skull, which would naturally imply death, could lend itself to innumerable hidden meanings. The death of a sly fox would indicate a victory for those inclined towards honesty, loyalty, and morality, as well as an opportunity for other, nobler subjects to be incorporated into the piece. Whatever the topic may be, a fox tattoo has a unique ability to appear to an entire range of different men.
