Skull belt buckles
For everyone from pirates to teenage girls
The skull and crossbones have a long history, adorning everything from pirate ships through to motorcycles.
While they aren't everyone's cup of tea, they do hold a very special place in the annals of fashion and are a key in many indigenous art forms, particularly Central American and Mexican.
The skull's journey to fashion icon
Rumor has it that skulls were first used in the 16th century in art as a reminder of mortality.
Throughout the following centuries, skulls made their way back into fashion at various points and in various ways.
The most recent revival of the skulls in fashion was thanks to designers like Alexander McQueen, who has used skulls on a plethora of fashion items from bracelets to t-shirts to cushions.
The skull and the belt buckle
Personally I can't go past a skull belt buckle, which seems to have survived many, many fashion trends since the 1970s when they first emerged into prominence through the British punk music scene.
Given their long history, there's fair chance that skull belt buckles will be around for many years to come. maybe even centuries!

Nice looking skull belt buckle. Not too large either, so it's perfect for those that prefer a bit of subtlety with their skulls.
