Jesus, with his deep love and passion for all of mankind, makes for a powerful symbol in tattoos. One of the most popular Christian symbols, Jesus Tattoos express the myriad shades of Jesus Christ. The story of Jesus is rich in drama, as he represents both humanity and divinity. This play of heavenly and earthly qualities is reflected in many tattoos.
A popular way to show Jesus in a tattoo is to depict his body on the Cross. The Crucifixion forms an important subject of many tattoos. Artists devote their skills to delineate the powerful muscles of the body and the detailed textures of the wooden cross. Jesus tattoos often show his parents on earth, Mary and Joseph. Many tattoos also show him in the humble robes of a shepherd, leading the sheep in a meadow. Some tattoos also concentrate on the face of Jesus, to highlight his love of humanity. To depict that he belongs at once in the heavens as on earth, Jesus is often shown with a divine halo, while blood pouring from his head connects him to the mortal realm. Jesus is also shown in his divine glory, as the Son of God, in many rich tattoo designs.
