These two instruments are often mixed up. Both are agricultural tools but can be used as weapons. Scythe is associated with the Grim Reaper. It has a long handle with a huge blade, slightly curved. Sickle, in the other hand, has a short handle and a small blade, but way more curved. As all types of blades, scythe and sickle tattoos are very popular in traditional tattoo. The first ones for its death symbolism of course. Sickle tattoos are more complex. It's a bit esoteric, with connection to druids. It is also the symbol of working class, and, with a hammer, of Communism. But sometimes, the Grim Reaper prefers the short model for its lethal travels. A bit macabre, yes! But scythe and sickle tattoos can also be truly rad.
