Santa Muerte

Over the past 6 months we’ve been following the progress of Southtownbaby’s scarification work.  As a new scarification artist she’s been sharing with the community and listening to the feedback.  In her latest scar, she tackles the image of Santa Muerte, the Mexican saint of death.

You can see more of Misty’s work in her BME Portfolio Gallery.

  1. The Virgin de Guadalupe is the traditional catholic image of the virgin Mary, this was based on an image of Santa Muerte, the saint of death. But we did go with a similar look to the typical virgin Mary pose and border that is often seen. (and thanks for the post Rob!)
