Humans are obsessed with life and death ever since birth, and deep thoughts on these themes go all the way back to ancient times. Tribes used to depict life and death themes in beautiful designs as body art, and the bold patterns of these designs inspire many modern tattoo designs too. The basic simplicity of a Life Death Tattoo design is the key to its great power as the lines flow in strong arches and clean sweeps. Many life and death theme tattoo designs are inked in styles that belong to an older time, and place the person who receives the tattoo in a long and ancient tradition.
Life and death theme tattoo go all the way from clean single colored designs in pure black, to those touched with shades for a softer and artistic effect. Many tattoos also use tribal symbols and patterns to great effect. Tattoo artists love the symbolic power of colors so the eternal red to symbolize passionate life and black to depict the sadness of death are used for many tattoos.
