Fine Silver Skull and Cross Bones Tattoo Ring

The image of the skull and crossbones is often seen on tattoos. Although it is associated with pirates and other meanings, the skull and cross bones is also a Tibetan symbol.

The skull is often seen as an object for contemplation on mortality. In Tibet the skull also stands for two of the four Precious Gifts: the precious gift of human birth and the precious gift of impermanence or change. This is a Buddhist way of understanding the present moment.

Life is short and it's important to be rooted in the moment. That's why I made myself a ring just like this, to bring me back to earth. The ring reminds me that ruminating about the past or feeling anxiety about the future serve no purpose. The best I can do is what works in the moment. I can do my best right now and nothing more.

I made this ring out of fine silver, then oxidized it to bring out the recessed areas. I polished it and hardened the silver by putting it in a rotary tumbler for an hour with stainless steel shot. This is what gives it a smoothness like tumbled rock.

This will be made to size for each individual order, so I'll need your ring size and up to a week to complete it. It will be stamped .999 before it is sent to you. The image of the skull is about 1/2" tall.

Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon!
