Bible Tattoos Part II

CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS? It’s not as crazy as it sounds, I promise: Bible Tattoos Part II

It is a very awesome thing when someone is brave enough to stand up for what they believe in. It’s the climax of any multilayered movie, the moment where the main character realizes who they are and what really matters, usually there’s a grand speech to commemorate the moment. The point is, believing takes guts. Faith takes courage.
CHRISTIANS AND TATTOOS? It’s not as crazy as it sounds, I promise. The ink in our skin is not what makes us sinners. What about the scriptures in Leviticus 19? First, know the context of that chapter. Second, read Bible Tattoos Part I. Still have questions about God stuff? Visit my blog. Tattoodo is about appreciation for the historical art form of tattooing. It just so happens that this article is about biblical based tattoos worth appreciating.

As it says in my bio up above I’m a Christ follower who writes and loves tattoos, so obviously doing an article on Bible tattoos is an exciting topic that’s right up my alley, I’ve even included some of my personal collection. See how these believers found a way to outwardly and creatively express the things of the bible that they have already tattooed on their hearts.

Great placement. Sometimes one word says it all. "If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old is gone and the new has come!"-2 Corinthians 5:17

Creative way to say God is greater than the highs and lows. James 1:17 says God does not change like shifting shadows.

I'm a follower of Christ who happens to be a writer and loves tattoos. My collection is growing, I'm officially in the double digits. If I was hardcore I'd have sleeves, one literary arm and the other biblical. Whether tattoos are main stream or back-alley I'll always enjoy the art form, particularly soft black and gray and script. I'm a fall kind of person who loves dogs. Follow me on Instagram @genevieverose1922
