Christianity has a longstanding relationship with body art that stretches all the way back to when Coptic Christians wore tattoos as markers of the faith and ethnic identity back in the 16th century. So, it's really no wonder that so many people have similar religiously themed pieces today. Regardless of that notorious passage of scripture from Leviticus that reads, "You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you," there are an incredible number of crosses, the Sacred Heart, and Jesus Christ himself on people's bodies.
