Christianity is by far one of the most popular and widely-practiced religions in the entire world. Its influence is obvious in governments, cultures, and coinage throughout many different countries. It is no surprise that with such a large number of followers, Christian-inspired tattoos are very common as a way for Christians to have a physical manifestation of their faith displayed proudly on their bodies. The types of Christian tattoos are highly varied and depend entirely on the person who gets it. Some people choose to get a symbol such as a cross or praying hands. Others choose a much more literal image, such as Jesus Christ being crucified. Whatever the image, the purpose is generally the same; to remind themselves of the love of their Lord and Savior, and to help spread the word of God.
