To tattoo or not to tattoo?
So this year I wasn't able to exhibit at Spring Harvest as it was cost prohibitive, but It was so touching to receive a message from someone to say that our presence has been missed in Skegness last week.
Reflecting back on when we were there last year, I remembered meeting this extraordinary young man called Sam and also had a chance to pray with him. He clearly was a born evangelist as he was not ashamed to tell people about Jesus. I noticed he had this intricately tattooed sleeve of Isaiah 40 with a picture of an eagle and a cross. He was interested in buying my poster 'Faith is your weapon against fear' so that he could have it tattooed across his whole torso. Ouch!
It got me thinking about tattoos more than ever though. At the end of the day I can take my Christian t-shirt off but these tattoos can never be removed. When I asked him why he did this, he said that it helps him remember who he is in Christ just by looking at his tattoos. What lengths he has gone to to proclaim his faith! He is ultimately glorifying God with his body.
