Does everybody like grim reaper tattoos, or is it just me? They always jump right out at me and I have to take a closer look. I suppose that would happen to anybody who has always been fascinated by death and dying like I have. Or should I say, obsessed with it. Most people, I think, try to put off thinking about death until they get older but no mater what you do we all have to face it sooner or later. After all, as we all know, the day we begin living is also the day we begin dying. Wow, that’s deep.

Like many grim reaper tattoos this drawing is very much to the point. It shows this creature standing there with its classic weapon and pointing its finger right at us, as if to say, you’re next. And we know that is what it means. There can be no doubt about that. We all have one visit coming from the grim reaper but none of us really wants to meet him. But getting one of these grim reaper tattoos has nothing to do with any of that crap. It’s just a matter of whether or not you think it would look cool on you or not.

There are quite a lot of people who believe that grim reaper tattoos are symbolic of something dark, something evil. There are other people who believe that the grim reaper tattoo isn’t evil, but is merely representative of the cycle of life and death. This meaning can be heightened by adding other symbols such as the wheel or a tribal circle of life design.

The majority of people who get a grim reaper tattoo get one that is true to the meaning of the symbol. They choose a design that features a skeleton with a large robe and hood carrying a scythe.

Some people extend the grim reaper symbol a little further by adding a feature less face to the design. This can make for a pretty dramatic presentation.

Grim reaper tattoo designs used to be done primarily in shades of gray and black, but things have changed over the past few years. It seems that more and more people are incorporating vibrant colors into their grim reaper tattoo. These tattoos are especially beautiful when they are done in shades of purple, red or orange. Not only are they brilliant to look at, but they can be quite original as well.

In this picture we have twenty examples of what could be grim reaper tattoos. And there are several interesting ones of them here. A grim reaper on a motorcycle. A grim reaper with a guitar. A grim reaper with a rose. A grim reaper wearing a suit of some kind. And even a grim reaper with a label on it that says ‘Dad’. Now, I find that a bit strange. If it just stands for the persons father being dead then I can understand but that doesn’t seem to be the normal meaning of a grim reaper.

I always thought the grim reaper symbolized death on the way. As if death was coming to gather you up and take you away to the under world. And if that is the case, then it is weird to have the word Dad with a grim reaper.

I like grim reaper tattoos for the most part because I like spooky types of tattoos, but most of the grim reaper tattoos on this image are almost cartoon like and that is what I do not like about them. There are some nice ones here, they are just not in tune with my taste. Maybe they are with yours.
