As far as grim reaper tattoos go this is a pretty damn good one. It is very imaginative and very creepy. Simple but very much to the point and it gets the point across, in my humble opinion, in a very big way. I do not know what this style of art is called but I like it very, very much. It takes but one look at this piece of art to get an impression from it and that is something I can appreciate a great deal. Should I ever decide to get one of these grim reaper tattoos, this one, or one very much like it, will be very high up on the list of what I choose from. I would not be surprised if I chose this one exactly as it is.
I’m glad I got to see this version of the grim reaper tattoos. The grim reaper here in this drawing makes me think he is just sitting there for a moment waiting for his next victim. And then he will swoop off to the left, the right, the up or the down and go and collect the next soul due to him. And of course, moments later he will be back for another. Because we all know that this is a process that never ends.
The grim reaper tattoo has been seen in the past as a moniker of evil. The grim reaper has often been associated with the dark forces of the devil, though this has historically not been the case. The grim reaper tattoo is simply a physical representation of death. It is neither good nor evil, it is what it is. The grim reaper is charged with taking the recently dead to the next life. Whether that is heaven, hell or purgatory depends on how the person has lived his life. So actually, the grim reaper is an agent of life as well as death. He has no control over who goes when and where they go when they die. He is merely an agent of the larger forces of the universe. Bearers of the grim reaper tattoo are usually making a statement with their design choice. The grim reaper tattoo states that the wearer is not afraid of death. The bearer of the tattoo in the picture has illustrated this symbolic representation even further by adding in the phrase, "Death Can Wait". He is making the statement that he is going to live life to the fullest and is not going to be bound by the fear of death.
