Skull Guitar Straps
The symbolism and meaning behind the skull:
Some of the most popular guitar strap designs include skulls.
Skulls can symbolize various things. The most common being death and mortality.
Other meanings such as strength or power are also commonly associated with skull designs.
But not all skulls are masculine or evil-looking. There are many feminine skull designs incorporating pink and purple hues, some even with hair and/or bows. Some of these more feminine skull designs often have hearts as eye sockets instead of the usual circles or ovals.
The most common symbol of the Day of the Dead holiday, celebrated in Mexican culture, is the skull, represented by masks called calacas, and sugar skulls.
Skulls are often seen together with other objects and symbols. It’s common to see roses, tulips, and various other flowers decorating skulls.
Wings, hearts, and stars are also very commonly linked to skull designs to enhance their visual appeal.
