A grim reaper tattoo is the ultimate reminder of the fragility of human life. Neither good nor evil, the grim reaper tattoo is symbolic of death itself. It’s skull reminding us that our days are finite and numbered. It carries a scythe in which to harvest the human souls and take them to their final resting place, either heaven or hell. It is a common tattoo for those in dangerous professions such as soldiers. In this capacity it indicates bravery and is an announcement that one is not afraid of death. In some cultures, such as ancient Rome, the grim reaper is a sign of good luck. It can also represent someone who views themselves as being outside of normal society. But, basically it’s just the iconic representation of what all of us fears the most, our imminent death. Wearing the grim reaper on your skin is your acknowledgement of the fleeting quality of life and that you are not going to be bound by your fears. And besides, the grim reaper tattoo is pretty cool looking, especially when combined with other symbols of death like the skull or raven. And in Gothic circles it has become quite the rage.

I like grim reaper tattoos. They always look pretty cool and this one is no exception. This is a very smartly done pencil sketch that gives a person a great idea of what this tattoo would look like. And there’s really only one word for that…creepy. If grim reaper tattoos don’t give you the creeps nothing will.
