Grim Reaper Tattoo

Grim Reapers have been linked with ancient art and literature for many years. His long black cloak and sharp hacking blade are enough to put fear into anyone who gets a glimpse of him. It is said that the Angel of Death uses his sharp scythe to separate the human soul from the body and accompanies the spirit to its final resting place, which is either Hell or Heaven.

Grim Reaper Tattoo

Grim Reaper Tattoo is a sign of bravery, courage; it means the wearer is not afraid of death. The Grim Reaper is a figure commonly used to represent death. Someone who has survived a grievous accident or life-threatening illness might get a Grim Reaper tattoo as a symbol of their triumph over death, or to remind them that just because they escaped once does not mean their future is certain. It could also mean you’re honoring a loved one who has passed on.

The Grim Reaper tattoo can be shown holding his scythe with skeleton hands in a variety of different positions, such as the front or his shoulder.  The face of the Grim Reaper is usually portrayed as a skeleton skull or even faceless. This tattoo is usually done in black or shades of dark gray.
