I spend a lot of time hanging out at Chopper Design Group, and a few nights ago i got to watch Mike Toupin work his magic on one of his customers bike, applying the finishing touches to the bad ass skull graphics of Wayne Elmore. Wayne Elmore has a long line of happy customers, including the set producers from the Sons of Anarchy FX cable TV show.

So why is it that skull are so popular with bikers? There is a bit of controversy on which bit of lore is more responsibly for the popularity of skulls, but in general the skull depicts fearlessness and is a warning to all who come in contact with them to step lightly or feel their wrath. Other popular suggestions are the acceptance of the biker?s mortality on the highways, as they are in peril whenever they ride in close proximity to automobiles and other vehicles.

I have heard quite a few bikers say skulls are the symbol of that ?devil may care? attitude that may of these hard core road rebels have for those not part of ?their? world.
