Longhorn tattoos represent strength and fearlessness in the face of death. Showing the cycle of life, the longhorn skull was once a mighty bull that has now has been reduced to bone. A standard symbol of the wild west, it is also the logo of the University of Texas.
The design is pretty straight forward and there really isn't much deviation from the image as playing with the design to much can lead to something that is unrecognizable. Sometimes girls will add landscapes or picturesque scenery in the the background such as cactus or sunsets.
A true wild west tattoo, the longhorn has a rich desert history and is a strong choice for anyone who fears nothing and has a free spirit.
