    Yes farouk, I can't remember how old he was when he had his first inking but it was as statement to those he felt were judging him unfairly. He was very small as a child and bullied at school and his first inking says, 'Only God can judge me'. About the same time he also took up body building which was also part of him trying to improve his self esteem. He is now 42.

    Many people believe it to be the real thing.

    No.
    I'm a scardy cat.
    And really worried about changing my mind.
    Do you?

    I'd love an arm thingy...

    That's quite pretty but I'm too old now with wrinkly skin so it wouldn't look nice.

    I just finished watching the video and, I am yet again changing my views on the shroud. I really found that book of the Acts of Thomas interesting. What else could it have possibly meant/?? Good share, thanks! ♥

    THIS is the problem!
    We will all have wrinkly skin one day.
    (if we're lucky).

    Some parents react with anxiety, and see it as a no-no. As if they are reluctant to "let go" of the young adult emerging.

    Others do "let go" and admire the young person's preparedness to take the plunge for the ink. (Seems like you are in this category, more probably?)

    It's kind of a younger generation thing, rather than a gender thing, now; seems like the young women as well as the young men now do it naturally and confidently.

    The fact that a lot of young men and women do it - even when they are short of disposable cash - maybe shows just how they prioritize it, don't you think?

    (Like, it must mean a lot to them.)

    For this Fijian rugby league player, Kevin Naigama, he uses it as a witness to his mates,

    See his back tatoo HERE.

    On his chest John 3:16 is tatooed:

    Thanks for those photos!

    For him it must have been truly a labour of love, worth the discomfort of getting them.

    My wife and I talked to a young lady with the whole of John 3.16 in a tasteful script on her wrist area; it was her favorite Bible verse, and mine also; and I'm sure other conversations have arisen also as a result of her willingness to endure the inking machine.

    For Kevin Naigama, maybe the chest did seem the best placement. I can understand a Christian young woman thinking that, unless it's going to be done with a bikini in mind, an arm / wrist area would be best for John 3.16 in full. (If this makes sense?)

    Thanks again for the photos!

    Do they ever wonder how you plucked up the courage to do it? and are you a bit surprised they themselves - assuming they're old enough - never did it yet?
