This tattoo best portrays my beliefs on death:
1st. The most obvious, surfaced symbolism is the balance between life and death, one of the main things we need to survive as a race.
2nd. Just as we are born we start to die. As you can see, death is carrying the baby from the begging of its life.
3rd. The lightness of death’s face, as well as the way the baby is lying down in death’s arms, shows that death is NOT a bad thing. It is something that we should feel comfortable with, since we all have to face it eventually.
4th. Death has the hands of man, showing that death is common, and nothing special that we need to fear.
