my new tattoo.

Tattoo #5 – check.

Jesus finger tattoo

On Tuesday Rachel and I headed over to Inborn Tattoo in LES to get (slightly) matching finger tattoos. I’ve been wanting to get a new tattoo for 2 years now, but on Sunday we got chatting about actually making it happen. Less than 48 hours later…

Inborn is definitely the best tattoo shop I’ve been to in New York. We were referred to our artist JonBoy by a friend, and I couldn’t recommend him more!

Not only is their work some of the best I’ve ever seen, but the shop itself is clean, professional, and welcoming.

If you’re into the tattoo sort of thing ;)

I’ve already gotten a ton of questions and comments about why I chose to have “Jesus” written on my finger. I actually went back and forth for a while deciding between some of my favorite words, verses, symbols, etc. before realizing that the meaning behind them always pointed back to…Jesus! And I couldn’t get that off my mind.

If I’m being fully honest, the only thing holding me back was the fact that it’s quite the bold statement to put smack dab on my hand. It’s something that might make some people feel uncomfortable, or at least curious. Like I said, it’s already gotten many interesting reactions from people I meet in public and brings up questions/comments, and…well, that’s sort of what I’m going for.

Bottom line – JESUS is the word/name I want to look down and see every day. Without JESUS I would be a mess of a human being, to say the least. JESUS is alive, and He’s…everything.
