Grim Reaper Tattoo at Rest

  1. In this tattoo, it seems as if the Grim Reaper is resting his sickle on his shoulder and is not in a mood to do much work. This can make you less terrified, I hope so! The white ink in the eyes give the eyes a shining look as if the eyes are glazed over or made of some sort of glass. The hood on the grim reaper and the teeth within the skull look very well done an realistic.

Grim Reaper Tattoo and Spooky Tree

2. This tattoo portrays the image of the place where the Grim Reaper walks and dwells before coming for his victims. The tree gives a genuine horror look to this tattoo and the elements of the design go well with each other. The tattoo artist did a great job of fitting this usually large and wide piece onto the arm. The whole tattoo flows well around each other and gives you a real sense of fear when you are looking at it.

Grim Reaper Tattoo beneath your skin

3. This unique design of tattoo appears as if there is some kind of world beneath the skin, in which the Reaper holds the sickle in such a way that the ripped flesh areas are made to look like the end of the sickle. Their is so much detail within this tattoo that its actually very impressive. It seems almost like the grim reaper is coming out of the skin while at the same time coming on some sort of dark cloud. This reminds me of some sort of bad dream you may be having and the grim reaper is coming for you.

. Although, you may find many tattoos attractive and cool,  the most important thing is to understand the meaning of the tattoo completely. Do not rush for a tattoo that you do not connect with your feelings and understanding. Go for a tattoo on which you have researched completely because tattoos are your lifetime companions. You would not like to regret at a later stage in your life. Some ideas for Grim Reaper Tattoo:

9. This is an incredible back piece that would have taken hours upon hours upon hours. The tattoo not only is filled with color, but it is also filled with movement and character. The purple cloak of the grim reaper stands out in the middle of the tattoo and the horse on which he is riding with flames coming out of its eyes gives the whole tattoo a fierce look. As the flames rise, the smoke billows and it is perfectly done. The scythe is large and threatening and you can tell by the multiple skulls that it has taken a number of souls already. This is a very well done tattoo.

10. this take on the grim reaper is a little different then what we are used to seeing but I like it. the grim reaper looks shorter than usual and it seems like he has angel wings as well. The long fingernails give this grim reaper a ghoulish figure and instills a Halloween like scare to it

11. the movement in this tattoo is so awesome. You can almost sense that this tattoo of a grim reaper is going to walk of the skin and tell you that you are next. The details within the cloak, hands, and smoke really allow this tattoo to come to life.
