Perhaps he might confront this "black mass" to realise its not real...
Take a swing at it... and watch it go "Poof!"
I would not do that if it was me. Provoking any negative spirit is not smart. I have seen people who curse and attempt to "bully" the spirit and this gives it a reason to respond.
Do NOT think a spirit can NOT manifest itself IF all the requirements are met. They can grab you and do awful things to you and some can make you hurt yourself.
I don't know about that. I've taken a run at these things on two occasions and they simply disappear when I'm on top of them. I don't think they like the fearlessness involved in confronting them. They feed off fear and a big salty attitude toward them seems to scare them away.

I asked him what it looked like and he showed me a tattoo of the grim reaper and told me it looked exactly like that. It hung there in his face sneering at him.

Well .. I"m a Christian with a degree in psychology. I know that there are real evil spirits (i've encountered them) and I know that people have real mental health issues as well. Gotta rule out the mental health issues before you can say it's an evil spirit issue.
Was it his tattoo?
Oppression comes in many forms, voices telling you to kill yourself or your loved ones, telling you that you are nothing and will never succeed, constant torment with mental visuals or dreams, physical harm like scratching and throwing, grabbing, etc.
These are always extreme cases and should never be taken lightly. Usually it starts off lightly, the spirit much like a puppy dog is looking for what you will let them get away with and once it is too late they are doing very bad things and you're in a deep hole. So the best way to prevent it from becoming bad is taking action early. The best form of defense is religion, and not lending energy to these spirits.
If you constantly acknowledge and make a huge deal you are only playing right into their hands, although some theorize that they are extremely psychic and know your deepest feelings, ignoring them to a degree can help. But the best form of action to take on these spirits is a blessing, whether it be by the catholic church, Jewish Rabbi, or using sage this usually always works and leaves the spirit no choice but to be vanquished from the land.
