Rad Tatts: Biblical Ink

Bible-inspired tattoos.

Daniel 12:3 Star


Rating: Borderline Bad

Underneath my skin? Is skin. With words on it. Daniel 12:3 to be exact. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? No? Well… you can kind of make out some of the words. I cut my skin into a star because the verse has the word STARS in it. Get it? It’s meta. Like having skin inside your skin. Except the 2nd skin doesn’t have any chest hair, because I waxed it. Jesus would have wanted it that way.


Weary Jesus Arm


Rating: Bad

Check out this sad Jesus on my arm wearing the crown of thorns. Depressing, huh? There are a bunch of happy flowers at the bottom in case you get too sad looking at it. The extra awesome part is my arm pimples become Jesus’s chest acne, so sometimes it looks like he ate too many chocolate bars. I like to imagine he has the exact same skin tone as me. Jesus would have wanted it that way.

Rad Tatts 2: Electric What The Hell Were You Thinking?

More Tattoos, You Guys!

Or God, The Grim Reaper, and Everyone Else Who Sees This.
I thought at first this was a mispelling of juice, which was creepy for reasons I don’t want to go into.

Dark Angel is my Suicide Girls name. Now, excuse me while I do a line off the back of this toilet.


Rating: Hipster

Check out this super unique tattoo, guys. Remember how we all like referencing stuff, like moustaches? Oh shit, you have one too? I’m gonna have to tattoo the date underneath mine so people will know I got it first. And when I’m all old, and don’t remember why I got a permanent tattoo of something a specific group of image-obsessed floaters thought was funny for a week, it’ll be a totally obscure reference! Hey, pass me a Pabst, bro!

Man, doesn’t anyone ever think about what these will look like when they’re 50+?

Perfect for remembering your vows while you what what in the butt.

When I looked up 1 Corinthians 13, the first four links I saw differed in text, and this tattoo did not match any of them exactly. Alterations and different translations depending on the person… that doesn’t sound like the Bible!

And, of course, it wouldn’t be a regrettable tattoo without random capitalization and a grammar error. The possessive form of IT is ITS, god dammit.

Okay, at first glance, I thought this was pretty funny. But, first time viewing is the only time that this tattoo really works. Therefore, wouldn’t it make a better sign or maybe seasonal theme at Subway?

Rating: Borderline Poor

Wow, Peter, the suit goes on over your skin. This looks great, but again, it’s permanent. Are you really going to dig Spiderman forever? He should avoid hooking up with the Bible chick: thou shall not envy Spidey.

Faith and hope and tattoos: these three things last forever.
