My name is Lindsey and this is my first tattoo! It’s just a little something to start me off, but I love it. It says, “send me” referring to one of my favorite bible verses, Isaiah 6:8 that says, “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? ”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”It’s on the back of my ankle/ heel. To break it down and make sense to you all, it’s a little declaration for myself saying that I’m willing to be sent wherever God wants me, I’m willing to be the feet of the body of Christ. Which is beautiful and terrifying all at once.
Romans 10:15, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Interesting opinionated blog (worth following if you’re a Christian who believes tattoos are okay).

One of the most hardcore tattoos I’ve ever seen. I met this guy at Cornerstone, he told me that once during accountability time with a bro, they got to talking about sharing the gospel, and he felt really convicted about his obedience to that, so much he permanently inked on his arm the words of Paul from 1 Corinthians 9:16.

“Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!”

Psalms 23 Tattoo Request by ~Eruraina

I made the ribbon purple because that’s the color of royalty and goes with the ‘Kingdom of Salvation’ theme. I feel like there’s more I should do with the shield but I just couldn’t think of anything else.

feitodebarro-deactivated2014072: This tattoo was very beautiful. A few days ago I read that tattoo done after we have accepted Jesus is sin, what do you think?

This was asked months ago regarding this post, and I’m very sorry to have put off answering it until now, but I figured it was more appropriate after posting that last tattoo.

I understand how people can see tattoos as harming your body rather than keeping it a sacred temple, as is said several times in the bible, however, one must remember not to take single verses out of context.
In Leviticus 19:28, we are commanded not to make cuts on our bodies or be marked by tattoos. But in the rest of Leviticus 19, God is also commanding us not to follow the traditions of other religions to glorify their gods, which included tattooing and marking as well as cutting your hair a certain way and eating bloody meat.

I was once taught that Paul had tattoos. Not in the literal ink definition, but as a basic mark on his body. In Galatians 6:17, he claims to “bear on [his] body the marks of Jesus”.
And that leads to Jesus maybe having tattoos Himself. Again, using tattoo as a noun (a design) rather than a verb (to insert ink into the skin), He has a tattoo on each of His hands: the holes through which the nails were driven as He was nailed to the cross.

I know that doesn’t cover Christians having tattoos as ink on their bodies, but in that case, I don’t think it’s a sin because it doesn’t drive us farther from God (if we have the right mindset). A lot of people get tattoos to display what Jesus has done in their lives.

This is my opinion and you can agree with it, contemplate it, or argue it. If you want, hit up the ask box and I’ll post what you think of it!

Personally, I plan on getting a tattoo to show my love for Christ when I turn 23. It will be an ichthys, and if people ask me about it, I hope to glorify my LORD through my testimony and faith.

Psalm 139:14 
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;    your works are wonderful,    I know that full well.
This verse was a constant reminder I had set on my phone, written on my books, and now it’s a permanent reminder that I was created with a purpose and my worth is found in Jesus Christ, not the number of “likes” on my facebook page or a number on a scale. <3

This is the Chi Rho on the back of my right arm. I’m a student of biblical language. This is one of the earliest forms of a Christogram (a monogram representing the Christ) it was popularized by Roman Emperor Constantine I. The Christogram is formed by combining the Greek letters Chi “X” and Rho “P” which are the first two letters in the word Christos.
Scribes would often right the Chi Rho in the margins of scripture that pertained to Christ. I’d like to think that my life could merit such a marking.

This is my first tattoo and one I had been thinking about for a few years. It is a dogwood tree with a lion woven in the branches. It symbolizes Jesus and the Cross. My grandpa told me a story when I was younger about how the dogwood tree was used for the Crucifixion and then the growth was stunted so it couldn’t be used for that purpose again. It’s flowers are cross shaped and beautiful. Although not biblically accurate in terms of the type of tree used, the symbolism coincides my love and faith in God.

This was my first tattoo. :) An anchor with “HEB 6:19” in it. 
Hebrews 6:19 - “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure…”
I got this tattoo to represent my faith in Jesus Christ. A lot of things in this world may distract me from him, but I can always rely on him through it all. He is what keeps me grounded in life, and without him there wouldn’t be any hope. &lt;3
