Getting a bible story tattoo can be both inspirational and meaningful. These pictures can be either large or small, and they can include any of the characters that appear in the stories. A simple example is the David and Goliath tattoo. The image’s simplicity captures the central theme of the story and is realistic-looking. If you are getting a Jesus tattoo, it is important to keep the design simple, as it will be interpreted differently by others.
Many Christians have Bible story pictures, but there are several things to consider before getting one. Although pictures are generally not considered holy, the Bible’s authority is up for debate. Mark Chavalas writes in Biblical Archaeology Review that “pictures are akin to sex acts, and there are no rules against them.” According to him, the Israelite in Isaiah 44:5 wrote the name of God on his hand, thus making himself a servant of the God of Israel. Then, it is ok to mark yourself with biblical symbols.”
