very cool :)

nice font! The inside of the wrist looks like a tender spot - you're very brave!

Nice! I am also getting this incorporated on a banner in the left arm with my Jesus sleeve.

oh no - ink itch. time to scratch. Nice, and way way cool.

excellent tat!

very nice... and somehow i like it especially in conjunction with Magdalene.

comprehensor et viator

Hi, I'm a former "lickems" pastor who left after he couldn't take the misogyny and xenophobia... sadly much directed at my poor wife, a disabled theology prof who was told her migraines were due to unconfessed sin, etc.

I stumbled across your page while looking for tats on "simul iustus..."

My wife has a great 1/2 sleeve she designed herself depicting creation... you can see it on my blog.

I'll have to come over and check out more of your blog entries, but now I have to study for class... having been burnt out by church politics and B.S., I'm now in nursing school.

(Incidentally... isn't "sarcastic Lutheran" a bit redundant, kinda like rigged Chicago election?)

Reminds me of a guy who had LOVE tattooed on one set of his knuckles and HATE on the other. Isn't there a biblical injunction against tattoos? Talk about irony!

i have one tattoo. i keep thinking i need more. it's fun to see peoples' reactions (especially that of the youth) when they see that their mild-mannered pastor has a tattoo. just think if i had multiple tattoos!!!

I'm planning to have my first tattoo but I don't know where the hell will I get the guts. I am afraid since my friend told me that it was really painful and this is the reason on why I can't pursue my plan.

I like your tat. In fact, I'm getting one of the exact same saying. It is going above my flaming Straticaster,pinups tats and the "like"on my uppr right arm. I guess there truly is "nothing new under the sun"
BTW I too am a VERY sarcastic former LCMS pastor of over ten years. Now I'm a professor of religious studies and philosophy for a local college, and a rocker by night.

The Rev.

You seem to be collecting ex LCMSers with tattoos. I've got three but have stayed LCMS for 30 years--got really blessed by a loving, accepting, semi-sarcastic congregation. Memo to Mark above: go ahead and get a few more--what's a little extra ink among friends?

To Holey Skin: tats on the upper arm don't hurt--aim there for your first one.

I'm an ELCA pastor, former mission redeveloper, yadda yadda yadda. Love your ink; stumbled across it looking for images to help with designing my next tattoo. Big, 3D, stained glass window set in a Gothic arch with simul iustus et peccator engraved in the stone surround. Once I get it done, I'll send you a pic. Blessings on your ministry.

Nice tattoo. I like the motivation and meaning behind it. I wish I knew more latin :(
