I would suppose that jesus tattoos have been around since the time of Jesus himself. After all, if you were a believer what could be better then getting a tattoo of the son of god himself? You sure couldn’t go wrong with that. Unless of course you came across some Roman’s or the like who would run you through with their swords just because you were a Christian. And yes, they did do things like that on a very regular basis. Obviously the Roman’s did not like Christians. After all, they did hang him on a cross and crucify him.
The jesus tattoos generally depict that killing. Perhaps the most heinous crime ever committed by man. The one they say effects us all whether we know it or not. After all, it was jesus who claimed to die for our sins and it was jesus who told the Father, in his time of pain, to forgive us for we know not what we do. Now it would appear that in this jesus tattoos is some sort of dedication to someone this person had lost. A mother, a brother, a father, a sister, a child or a spouse. Someone very close to them, whose name is on the jesus tattoo but we are unable to read it.
There have been jesus tattoos for nearly as long as there have been tattoos. At least a few thousand years anyway. This particular jesus tattoo shows not a bit of pain nor anguish on his face. He knows his time has come and he’s ready to give his blood to save mankind. And that is what he did on that very dark day so many years ago.
