It’s possible that you have heard of the grim reaper. This is known as the supernatural entity that will come to your side upon death. This being typically is dressed in a black robe and when it appears, this is a sign that you’re near the end of life. Reapers are usually seen in horror movies.
A reaper tattoo is symbolic of death. Some people may choose it as a sign that death is not feared while others simply view it as the end of life. It’s common for this type of tattoo to be done in black and gray, but reapers are done in color as well.
