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.”

After you thank this person for their clear insight, you should do some reflection. They have a good point. 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. Remember these are permanent, so obviously, they are completely serious.
