There are certain body art images that are so artistically detailed with a great deal of skill and talent so that the end result looks almost photographic rather than inked on the skin with the help of a tattooist’s needle. These work particularly well with facial features and one of the most widely requested faces of all time has to be designs used for a Jesus tattoo. Some of the intricate artwork involved in these designs is truly breathtaking whether it is created for a smaller body part such as the arm or shoulder or for a larger canvas like the full back area. This is a popular image for those with strong religious beliefs who want their choice of body art to reflect their devotion and bring them closer to their God.
There are many iconic religious symbols and images that are widely requested for body art designs following a theme of faith, particularly among followers of Christianity and Catholicism; however a Jesus tattoo has to be one of the most favored overall. These are often beautifully detailed works of art that can be depicted in a variety of different ways whether the individual prefers a full-bodied version or one that focuses on the facial features only. The former often include Christ on the cross while many of the latter show His face writhing in agony with a crown of thorns on His head but either can be scaled to suit differing skin surfaces or incorporated with related imagery for larger more elaborate designs.
