I sometimes think that of all the people in the world, the Mexicans are the ones who really get death right. They are not afraid of it, and it is a constant part of their lives. Deceased loved ones are even celebrated on certain occasions. One of my favorite Mexican traditions is the decoration of sugar skulls, or calaveras. Zara Yip brings this tradition to life with her beautiful face tattoo called “La Muerta”. This round of FLUX has all manner of items for the Day of the Dead, and one of my favorites were the Death’s Devotion eyes from the Stringer Mausoleum. I edited them a bit to let my regular eye come through the middle of the flower. I chose one of Truth Hawks’ newest designs in white to give our not-so-dead girl a more ghostly feel.
