So I have wanted to get a tattoo for a while. And when I say a while, I mean 7 years or so. Initially I wanted to get an ichthus (spelling?) but that symbol seems too commercialized now a days. So now I am thinking of something like this:
I actually like this one better because it is simpler:
Just for clarification, I do not want a tattoo of the offering plate (tres strange) but rather just the emblem on the offering plate.
I am thinking of getting it on my forearm just below my wrist and about the size of a silver dollar. That way it would be a visible reminder to me but would also not be out there in people’s faces or very visible when I wear nice things.
So…any thoughts on the design or on tattoos in general? Do any of my PCUSA pastor friends out there know whether this symbol is associated with ordination? If it is then I definitely won’t be getting it any time soon. That would be a bit presumptuous on my part I think. That’s a long road I have yet to travel…
