Jesus and Tattoos

In the huffingtonpost.com there is an article that talks about tattoos. The article says, “For many inked individuals, tattoos are a way to commemorate a spiritual journey or a means of expressing one’s internal self. The body becomes the canvas for a diverse array of religious inspiration through this artform.”

Furthermore, “Though cultures and religions differ in their official teachings with regards to tattoos, it’s undeniable that many people find them a meaningful way of expressing their personal faith and spirituality. Judaism and Islam have historically discouraged tattoos, citing scripture and hadith. Others see tattoos as a unique way to evangelize, proudly showing off their faith with their adorned bodies.”

I love tattoos. I think they’re beautiful (most of the time), and can be a great way to tell people about Jesus. I don’t think there is anything wrong with having scripture on your body. I might not do it but I think it’s awesome that people do.
