With all the death gods in the history of animé, Death Note's Ryuk may be one of the most recognizable shinigami among newer viewers. He's not bad either, he did pretty well on Death Note—even giving enough justice to the live-action version of the film with a pretty sick character adaptation. 

Some people seem to be loving Ryuk more than we do, though. Check out their fan tattoos!
