People have been personifying death for millennia in an attempt to explain and understand why everything dies eventually. Death is the great equalizer. The end we are all doomed to meet eventually. Some people choose to go about ignore that fact, while others choose to embrace it.
The people who got the tattoos in this gallery likely fall in the latter category. They were clearly interested in death enough to have it personified on their person for all of eternity. (Do you think Death is flattered upon meeting people with tattoos of itself?)
Regardless of your stance on death, these tattoos are pretty awesome.
