A while ago, these skull-cutout tees were all over the place.  I really wanted one, but I wasn't crazy about the design.  I wanted a really gnarly kind of skull!!  And I didn't see any reason to spend money buying one when I knew I could make one in about 30 minutes.
So here we are.  

Procure t-shirt
Design skull
Cut skull out of t-shirt
Optional: cut neck, sleeves and hem off of t-shirt to turn it into a tank top!

And, done.

<p>Nice Back , love it!</p>
<p>I made a bit of a remix of this old classic, substituting the skull for a Stormtrooper. Hope you like it!</p>
Far out idea, but doesn't the model have it on backwards :)
Omg I love it
Cool! What kind of t-shirt is that? It looks slightly sheer. I am going to try this except with a butterfly pattern instead. <br>
this is really ingenious
Put a red one underneath so you can wear a bra!
Trying to think of what kind of bra to wear with this...
put the face on the front and the bra would be the eyes of the skull XD
Looks awesome (now if only my back wasn't so hairy....)
awesome idea !!!

Nice! Perfect for rock climbing - scary looking, and keeps you cool.
I just saw a chick wearing one on the street yesterday. I wanted to compliment her shirt but didn't, because I didn't want her to call me a creep in public. It's a simple but awesome ible. <br />
Very Cool look I am going to make for my grandsons this weekend. Is there a way to copy just the skull patttern? Thank You
I think if you download the second picture, you could blow up the image I used large enough to trace it. Click on the "i" in the upper left corner, and choose the "original" size.
Looks awesome. Being a guy i don't worry much about &quot;Layering&quot; my tops, but i could see some potential options here with wearing a different color undershirt to change the cut out area to the color of my choice. Nice instructable, thanks!
Will the fabric fray? <br />I really want to try this out :D
It won't as long as you use a t-shirt (which is knit) as opposed to something woven.
realmente gostosa!
Love this! I have the one from Pinterest saved in my photos...this has taken the guess work out! thank you so much...by the way, my kitty with the black tail is gone...:(
I am so very sorry for your loss. &gt;&gt;^..^&lt;&lt;
I love this idea! <br />
I like this! Retro in an 80's kind of way ... And I must say, sexy too!
You could sew a big black patch behind it, if it was cold or you didn't want your skin showing.
Or just wear a dark t-shirt under it.
That too.
I had a friend who rode a motorbike with a T shirt... one day he had a shirt just like this +road rash.... <br />nice ible though, keep your ideas coming...
Besides being beautiful, perfect body has good humor, is very polite and helpful. Thanks for responding. I love your work. I wish much success. kisses
I propose to cut this in a black t-shirt and wear a white one underneath
^^^^ what he said! or as a bathing suit cover! <br />
Isn't it amazing that something so simple could be so AWESOME?!?!?!
Very Misfits ! Rock on.<br /> <br />
This is fantastic!
....and I voted for you!
Brilliant! Very cool!
That looks so good!
Good idea
Needs more lasers :-P <br> <br>Just kidding, good job!
Wow. I had never seen a skull cut tee. This looks original and well ventilated. :)
That's pretty neat! I don't think I've seen this idea before.
Cool idea and nice work
Oh my. <br>Oh the instructable is good too.
Very Cool! I've always wanted one of these. I think cutting off the neck and sleeves totally completes the look! <br>
Very cool idea.
Yeah I was thinking that I might do this for Lilly she would love this (Lilly's Instructables name is LillyLovesVampires)
