7 Ideas for Your Next Christian Tattoo (and Some to Avoid)


The first response you’re likely to get when you announce your intentions to get a tattoo are likely to be something like, “You know, you’re going to have that on your body forever.”

Your tattoo is going to be on you for a long time and, particularly if you’re going to use this opportunity to get a tattoo reflective on your faith, you’re going to want to get the right kind of tattoo. Here are a few ideas to spur your creative spirit—and a few to avoid.
