Grim Reaper Tattoos

    One always thinks of the grim reaper as a Halloween symbol, but that is far from being the case. The grim reaper symbolizes the transitory nature of life, with its symbols, the Grim Reaper and the Skull symbolic in medieval and renaissance arts, as a reminder that there is an afterlife that awaits us when we leave this world. Some may find the idea of a Grim Reaper tattoo as a little on the morbid side, remember that many paintings, especially those of saints, featured skulls and bones. Likewise, those painting that showed famine and disease often contained the cloaked and hooded figure of the Grim Reaper. He would wear a black cloak, unable to see his face he would carry a scythe or a tool used to cut crops. The only other part of the grim reapers body that was visible was the bones of the hands and feet, a symbol of death that has come upon the person.

   The Grim Reaper Tattoo is often considered symbolic of Satanism or the Devil, and thus, many who may see the wearer as a worshiper of a devil’s cult frown upon Grim Reaper tattoos. There is no doubt the Grim Reaper is the symbol of Death just as the Angel of Death, but that doesn’t mean the wearer is a worshipper of death or of the devil. Having a Grim Reaper tattoo may mean nothing to the wearer other than personal preference in the choice of designs. To the wearer of Grim Reaper tattoos, the symbolism may indeed be within the realm of enjoying the look of the esign much as someone having a tiger, lion, bear, or other design.

   Grim Reaper tattoos come in a variety of different sizes and colors. In addition to the selections that are available at tattoo parlors, art is available online for you to download and print. Grim Reaper tattoos have many different combinations and can be resized upon download for you to print and give to your tattooist. This gives you a better choice of design, especially if you have been unable to find Grim Reaper tattoos that appeal to your sense of style. The skull peeking out from the hood is the sign of the Grim Reaper; however, there are many variations of the design that you can use to make Grim Reaper tattoos. Choosing a design that fits your personality is the important thing. Your Grim Reaper tattoo is permanent, so you want to take time to choose something with which you will be happy and ascertain that its placement will not interfere with job or social regulations; i.e. do not place it on your lower forearm if it means you cannot wear short sleeve shirts even in hot weather while on the job.
