Tattoos Inspired by Mexican Culture

Today is Cinco de Mayo, the anniversary of when General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin was able to lead the Mexican army to an unlikely victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. No, it's not Mexican Independence Day like some people think, that's on September 16th. To celebrate Cinco de Mayo we have gathered together this gallery of tattoos inspired by Mexican culture—including sugar skulls, portraits of Frida Kahlo, luchadores and more. Enjoy.
