This is a great Jesus tattoo. And what really makes it come alive is the color, or shall I say lack of color. You see, this style of tattoo looks best in the traditional monochrome style. Most examples and flash you find will be like that. Don’t worry about not having enough detail by only using one color. The symbolism of these tattoos will still shine through. And you can make the Jesus tattoo pop by adding just the slightest dash of color, like the red of Christ’s blood. There are many reasons why some people choose to get a tattoo of Jesus.

First and foremost is that they have a great connotation, especially for the person who wears them. The reasons are varied and often deeply personal, but common amongst them all is a willingness to have such a reminder of their relationship with Jesus Christ. However, if you’re not ready to get a full-figured tattoo, consider getting either a stylized cross, a Jesus fish tattoo, or a sacred heart tattoo. These can also act as representation of Jesus’ divine love for humanity and can be great first stepping stones in your final goal of getting a Jesus tattoo.

Here we have the classic jesus tattoo with the thorns on his head when he was obviously being crucified by the Romans. And he looks scared in this tattoo. That doesn’t surprise me because I imagine to some extent he must have been scared, even though history tells us that he knew what was happening to him and he was forgiving about it, even while it was being done. Which in and of itself is an amazing thing.

For many millions of religious peoples around the world, this event was perhaps the most profound moment for mankind, ever. The one thing that defined most of us as both a people and a society more than any other single thing in history.

A person who wears a jesus tattoo like this one is obviously a believer. They might not be a hardcore practicing religious person who goes to church three times a week but they are a believer just the same. And they believe that jesus died for all of the rest of us. This is quite a statement when you think about it and certainly no other tattoo could carry as much meaning as a jesus tattoo carries.

The Jesus tattoo is the most Christian of all religious tattoos. When it comes to modern Christian tattoo, it can most likely be traced back to the times of the counterculture movement of the 1960′s and 1970′s, while sex, drugs, and rock and roll were eroding standard morality and waging a pseudo war against Christian culture. Devoted Christians then emerged who wanted to claim back Christian territory that had previously been lost. One of the ways that they did this was to reclaim the practice of tattoo for God and Jesus, by getting tattoos that were inspired by Christian and religious symbols and images.

With a tattoo depicting Jesus himself being the ultimate inspiration. Traditionally, Jesus would be seen hanging on the cross, but the Jesus bust is increasingly becoming a valid choice. Ironically, the Jesus tattoo can be contradictory towards many Christian sects who look upon tattoos as defacing the body’s temple and being explicitly against God’s law. The Jesus tattoo depicted in the photo can also be interpretative in a negative manner, a comment on the stagnation of the church and the decline of common Christian beliefs. A virtual combination of the Jesus figure crossed with zombie or horror influences.

I really like this Jesus tattoo. It takes the traditional representation of Jesus and adds a kind of funky splash of color. And religious tattoos of this sort are enjoying a boom in the tattoo world. Why is that you ask? One reason is that Jesus tattoos are very popular with those people that have just discovered religion or are seeking to make a transition in their life that has come from religion. With the various reasons of why people choose to take advantage of Jesus tattoos, this is the most popular. Through this reason, the tattoo of Jesus is meant to symbolize something larger.

These tattoos are meant to symbolize a changing in the life, a reincarnation and even a transformation within the soul. These acts can be an effective way to mark the transition within the lifetime that can lead to genuine changes and can be a way to reflect outward what is felt inward. Where can you find inspiration for Jesus tattoo designs? Inspiration for Jesus tattoo designs can come from a variety of resources, including biblical art and paintings that have been required depicting Jesus in a variety of circumstances and even through the use of various artworks that have depicted Jesus in a variety of forms.
