15 Iconic And Classic Christ Tattoos
Religious tattoos are always a bold statement of one's faith, in recent years delicate religious tattoos have been incredibly popular.
From simple crosses to dainty rosaries but for some discrete tattoos are not where it's at and instead they opt for the old school classic Christ tattoo! The classic Christ tattoo has been an iconic design for decades and popularized by the likes of Freddy Corbin. Typically an old school Christ tattoo is bright, bold and dramatic with the figure portrayed with an upward gaze and often wearing a crown of thorns.
Although, no actual portraits of Christ exists the classic Christ tattoo sticks to the tradition of historical paintings and sculptures of the son of God and displays him in flowing robes, long haired and bearded. For many Christ tattoos display their personal faith, though they are also images associated with compassion, suffering, holiness and universal love. Of course for some a religious tattoo is not for them, but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate some old school tattooing of an iconic image in modern tattoo history!
