Grim Reaper TattooIdeasBy: TatFan.
The Grim Reaper, also called the angel of death in many cultures, represents the fictitious being that comes to take people to the afterlife when their lives come to an end. Obviously people getting a grim reaper tat aren't all on death's door so it means several other things.
A common meaning and reason people get the grim reaper tattoo is to acknowledge that we must all pass eventually and shouldn't waste time on meaningless things.
Is a grim reaper tattoo bad luck?
The grim reaper depicted in tattoos has neutral luck, it is neither good nor bad. The Grim Reaper is featured in tattoos to make a statement of being, of determined fate, not so much of luck or fortune. Remember, time is limited, and 'make the most of the time you have left' is a good description of what the grim reaper means.
Are reapers evil?
As with luck, the grim reaper tattoo is not good or evil. As a spectral being known globally as a ghostly figure the grim reaper is often wrongly portrayed as being an evil being. Death is a certainty for all living beings and, in common folklore, everyone is said to have to 'face the reaper', eventually.
