50 Grim Reaper Tattoos
Next up on Tattoodo Halloween is Dr. Death himself. The grim reaper. Harvester of souls.
Some would refer to him as the Angel of Life and Death. Undeniably, the grim reaper is the personified symbol of the dark, inescapable fact of life that is death.
It wasn't only until the 15th century when the world started re-imagining death as a skeletal figure in a long, black, hood, wielding a razor-sharp scythe. And even then, it had been feared by many due to its unpredictable nature, like a thief in the night, you'll never know when it comes after you. With this, it has become a very popular choice for tattoos. Usually in its signature black robe, with the matching scythe, it has appeared in numerous tattoos, in different styles. Sometimes, it is also shown with an hourglass, a strong symbol for our numbered days. The grim reaper tattoo is an excellent choice for those who appreciate dark imagery and those who would want something to represent the briefness of life and what will be always waiting for us all.
