Last Laugh Tattoo
Express your unique style with this statement skull tattoo watch
Last Laugh Tattoo is linked to the tradition of memento mori.
It’s a unique watch, designed to remind you that life is brief and you should live it to the full.
This version of The Last Laugh features specially commissioned artwork by British tattoo artist Adrian Willard.
How to read the time
The Last Laugh Tattoo is not your average watch. Instead of hands, you check the time on the skull’s teeth.
The upper teeth show the hours, and the lower teeth show the minutes.
The watch has a jump hour feature, so the hour flips in the top teeth, exactly on the 59>00 minute shift, blink and you’ll miss it!
A watch for life. You’ll never need to replace a battery again.
Last Laugh Tattoo is powered by a 20 jewel automatic mechanical movement.
This means the motion of wearing your watch provides the power to wind it up and keep it running.

Adrian Willard is a popular, traditional tattoo artist from the seaside city of Brighton in the UK.
He talks about his inspiration for the tattoo design:
“the design comes from the Mexican Day of the Dead festival. The festival focuses on gathering to remember friends and family who have died. Many gifts and offerings are handed out including sugar skulls that are given to both the living and the dead.
It has become a very popular image in the tattoo world over the years and has replaced the regular skull in the mainstream tattoo trends”.
