Winner for Best Tribal Reaper Tattoo
At number five, this mixed style tattoo is unmistakable as both a grim reaper tattoo and a tribal design. The red highlights of the reaper's scythe and of the bottom of his shroud are a nice touch and the flowing shroud is clearly tribal in nature.
At number four is this full-body reaper complete with Kryss. It's difficult to convert an entire grim into a tribal silhouette but we think this example did an excellent job. The facial area keeps it from ranking higher but overall this is an exceptional design.
This simple and almost minimalist tribal grim reaper tat could be classified in a lot of different ways but we feel it represents the tribal and reaper categories best. At number three the consensus was that it would benefit from a little less smiling effect but, overall, rank it at #3.
Coming in at number two this tribal reaper tattoo has become popular and several variations exist, as does a temporary version. We've seen this design with the scythe facing in the other direction and with different faces and colors, it's quite popular. However, despite being popular, it doesn't quite rank at #1 as a tribal reaper tat, it's not fully reaper or fully tribal.
Joeseph Pasternak inked this amazing tribal reaper tattoo while he was with Tattoo City Skin Art of Illinois many years ago. Everyone agreed that the background was uniquely tribal in design but what put it over the top was how well Joeseph merged the reaper over the tribal background. Every aspect of Joeseph's design flows freely, well done!
