Why the Fascination with SKULLS??

O.K. Guys; I will admit right up front that I'm a grumpy old fert that is out of touch with the times!!

But would one of you hip guys mind sharing with me the rationale of what seems like an obsession with HUMAN SKULLS in hot rod related art/graphics/decor/paint jobs and tattoos?

Now I know (and certainly agree), that every aspect of hot rodding is and should be an expression of the persons "individualism"; but SKULLS?? Don't get me wrong - to each his own; but SKULLS? I also believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder; but SKULLS??

While my personal tastes re the areas mentioned above runs to snakes (Cobras, Rattlers, Vipers, etc.), large cats (Tigers, Panthers, Lynx, etc.), birds of prey (Eagles, Hawks, etc.) and flames - I'm just trying to understand and/or learn to appreciate the fascination that it seems like the majority of rodders have with SKULLS!!!
