    So do you understand now better (not that I expect you actually to be of the same view) why faith based ink is often regarded as an effective witness opportunity?

    Thanks! It doesn't come up on my screen that you voted; if one clicks where it says '3 Votes' after 'Between 26 and 40' , your name does not appear (but maybe it's a screen issue on my computer...)

    @Waiting on himPS: I think you anyway see the value of waiting some years in order to have a good inking experience (faith based?) that won't be regretted.

    Well, I'm actually not a tattoo artist, and although I can see you're not so enthusiastic about the skin context, I guess you do concede that there is a lot of excellent tattoo artwork out there, isn't there?

    (I guess that Christians with faith based tattoos that are witness-friendly have chosen to embrace the medium rather than resist it, so to speak.)

    Seems anyway that you do recognize there is a great deal of very fine tattoo artwork around, anyway, isn't there?

    Although you might originally have had reservations about your sons' tattoos, later did your sons evidently seem pleased for your sake that in the end your own decision to get tattooed made you feel good?

    @tzcho2 Thanks for your comments.

    I guess what those who get Bible verse/witness tattoos would say is that it's not only - or even mainly - about feeling good being tattooed for its own sake but also or even more so about feeling good about witnessing effectively.

    (This thread has had more replies lately.)

    Okay my friend. Please post a photo of yourself, and all your tattoo's.

    I am making a rule. You are only allowed to write in your tattoo and ear piercing threads from now on, if you post and show us yours. :D

    It faded before being photographed. (But I don't think you mind talking about tattoos and earrings yourself, do you... :) It's anyway what so many ppl get, distant and close, isn't it?)

    @Waiting on him PS: So as opposed to tattoos, as per discussion today, above, were you ever into earrings?

    I remember considering one as a teen, but my momma would have beat me with a hickory switch.

    These days you would probably have considered having both ears pierced, which is what they do now, generally speaking; and if it had been today, moreover, your mother would probably have let you do it, as well.

    The first tattoo does tend to wait until 18. (As you said your daughters already did. Ears tend to be a bit earlier than 18, right?)
