Jesus tattoos are tattoos that are often inked by those who are Christians or align themselves with this faith. While it is highly unlikely that Jesus himself would have gotten one of these tattoos inked, Jesus tattoos are becoming more and more prevalent among followers of his faith. This has seemed to cause a bit of controversy, because many people think that getting any tattoo, even a Jesus tattoo, is against the principles of the faith. I tend to disagree, however. I am not going to get into the details of why I think Jesus tattoos are acceptable, because I would rather focus my attention on their design elements.
Even if your against Jesus tattoos you have to admit that these designs can be very compelling. They can be thought provoking and allow the faithful to feel a greater connection with their faith. They can also be a constant reminder to the bearer of their place in the world and in the universe. Because it can have such a powerful effect it is considered by some people to be one of the greatest designs the faithful could get. One of my favorite Jesus tattoos depicts Jesus with a crown of thorns on his head. This is not only a powerful symbol of sacrifice.
When you get a Jesus tattoo, you are getting a design the 99% of all people will know the meaning of it. If you ask any mixed group of people who Jesus was, just about all of them will tell you. There might be that one guy who’s had his head under a rock since he was born, but by and large everyone will know. So, after you get a Jesus tattoo inked you can be pretty sure that there won’t be people coming up to you and asking who that is or what it represents. If they do, then you probably have a Jesus tattoo that is so poorly designed that nobody can recognize him!! Now, let’s take a moment and talk about the Jesus tattoo in the picture. This is one that I really like and I’ve seen quite a few tattoos of this sort. This one is done in a more natural style, as opposed to some of the monochromatic ones that I have seen recently. As is the case with almost all tattoos of this style, the blood is a lot brighter then the rest of the design, to highlight the fact that Jesus spilled his blood for our sins. Overall, I think this is a Jesus tattoo anyone would be proud to wear.
